The Minnesota Twins have won nine of their 16 meetings this season with the Detroit Tigers, and a win today would clinch a victory in their head-to-head season series.

Betting Impact:

The Twins are -190 moneyline favorites, per BettingPros consensus odds. Both of these teams enter on a two-game losing streak. The Twins had yesterday off while the Tigers had to play a make-up game against the White Sox for a game that was previously rained out. However, the fact that the Twins have a rest advantage should not factor too much into bettors’ minds, as Minnesota is just 1-5 in the six games they have had a rest advantage against the opponents. Tonight’s pitching matchup is between Tyler Alexander (2-3, 4.10) and Charlie Barnes (0-3, 6.61). The under has cashed in Detroit’s last four series openers, and is 4-0 in Minnesota’s last four games overall. However, the over is 5-0 in the last five meetings between these teams in Minnesota.
