Money line (ML)
The Twins will cost you over two times your potential return and that's just not a good bet in this middle game. Minnesota barely scraped by Detroit 6-5 in the series opener Monday as heavy favorites.
TWINS -1.5 (-110) is a better play at near even money as they look for their first victory by more than 2 runs since July 21. Bet this one lightly the Twins' last two wins have come by just 1 run and they're just 2-3 across their last five games.
The OVER 9 (-110) is also worth a small-unit play here. These teams combined for 11 runs in the series opener Monday, and the Over has cashed in the last three meetings between these AL Central rivals at Target Field.
