Twins-Rangers : Weary
This line has actually been bet down a bit from the overnight action opener of -135 ML. Lots of odd stats floating about in this one. Minnesota (28-55) is 13-9 against the AL West. This game has two teams that are getting dog tired. Twins had to beat the A’s at 1AM on Wednesday morning, win the 1PM start, gather their belongings, and travel to Texas. What also does not bode well for the Rangers is that their starters have not been lasting long as of late! Their bullpen is getting rag tag. With the All-Star game in sight, will Texas just feed today’s starter to the wolves?
Chi Chi Gonzalez gets the ball for the Rangers. Two starts this year and he got crushed by the Twins already. Part of the problem is that his arsenal is predicated by contact. He does not have the stuff to mow down hitters. Gonzalez is rested and will not be phoning it in, the problem is whether he has the stuff on a major league level to get outs on a consistent basis. Meanwhile, the Twins wheel out their ace. Twins give good run support for Duffey. His last thee has slightly inflated numbers from his season averages. No walks and a 1.00 WHIP are good but they have translated into a 5.82 ERA over the last three. Big inning potential against him on occasion.
Total being over 10 1/2 in this one is the factor to consider. Texas is so much more suited to produce runs in blowouts than the Twins. If one is going to bet the over 10 1/2 at -115 then the runline is much better suited for your purposes. – 1 1/2 +155 on the home team in a wild one offers the better return for your funds. Good fortune and we will see you later today here at the HRW.
