Recent Form

The Twins are hoping to get back on track, after falling to the NY Yankees, by a score of 5-2. On their way to giving up 5 runs, the Twins staff allowed 7 hits. Offensively, they finished with just 2 runs on 6 hits. The loss came as Minnesota was the betting underdog, getting 145.0 on the moneyline. This matchup remained below the over-under line set at 8.5 runs. With this result, Minnesota’s over-under record dropped even further, moving to just 61-62-10.

In their last 5 games, the Twins are below .500, at 1-4. In this rough stretch of games, the team’s run differential comes in at -14. A key reason for Minnesota’s recent struggles is an offense averaging just 3.0 runs per game over their last 5 contests, compared to a season average of 4.40. So far, Minnesota has won over half of their 43 series played, going 19-18-6.

New York is coming off a 3 run win over the Twins (5-2). For the game, the pitching staff held the Twins to 2 runs on 6 hits. Offensively, they finished with 5 runs on 7 hits. In the game, New York was able to take care of business as they were the favorite at -165.0. So far, the team has won 62.0% of the games in which they were favored. With this result, the Yankees and Twins combined to fall below the over-under line of 8.5 runs. This result comes as no surprise, as the team’s over-under record is just 61-70-4.

In their last 5 contests, the Yankees have just 2 wins, going 2-3. This recent slump is backed by a scoring margin of -7 over their last 5 games. The team’s offense is partly to blame for their recent slump, as they have averaged just 2.0 runs over their last 5 game. On the season, New York has won more than half of their series, going 25-14-6.

Minnesota will hand things off to Louie Varland, who is making his MLB Debut for the Twins. Most recently, Varland was pitching in AAA for the St. Paul Saint. This year, he has a record of 8-5 with a 3.06 ERA.

Minnesota Twins at New York Yankees Prediction

Heading into Wednesday’s matchup between Minnesota and New York, the Yankees are the favorite on the moneyline. Even though Louie Varland has some decent numbers in AAA, I don’t see him holding up vs the Yankees. I recommend taking New York to win by multiple runs on the runline.
