TV: FSN-N, FSN-WI
The Minnesota Twins and Milwaukee Brewers will begin a four-game series on Monday night.
The Twins just took two of three from the New York Yankees, but have lost seven of their last 10 games overall. While the Twins pitching staff has been a mess all season, it’s actually allowed three or fewer runs in five of their last six games. It’s the offense that hasn’t produced much, scoring two or less runs in six of their last 10 games. Trevor Plouffe, however, does have an RBI in three of his last four games. Getting the nod is Kyle Gibson, who is 4-4 with a 4.18 ERA and has 29 strikeouts in 56 innings. This will be Gibson’s first career game against the Brewers.

The Brewers just took two of three from the Chicago Cubs and continue to have a decent lead in the NL Central. While the Brewers pitching staff has allowed five or more runs in four of their last six, the lineup has produced five or more runs in six of their last seven. The Brewers are 30-3 when scoring four or more runs. Ryan Braun has homered twice in his last three games. Matt Garza gets the start, and he’s 2-4 with a 4.84 ERA and has 56 strikeouts in 67 innings. Garza is 0-1 with a 2.57 ERA in two career starts against the Twins.
The Twins are 1-4 in Gibson's last 5 starts as an underdog and 6-2 in their last 8 during game 1 of a series. The Brewers are 4-0 in Garza's last 4 home starts and 7-3 in their last 10 games as a home favorite. The Twins are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Milwaukee.
There's no value in aking the Brewers, which is why I'm going with the over. Both teams are capable of crushing the ball and Garza has been giving up runs left and right this season. Give me the over.
