The Minnesota Twins have scored 12 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four of their last eight games. The Twins have won five of their last seven games when scoring four or more runs. Jorge Polanco leads the Twins with 150 hits and 90 RBI while Luis Arraez and Josh Donaldson have combined for 212 hits and 102 RBI. Luke Farrell gets the ball, and he is 1-0 with a 1.31 ERA and 21 strikeouts this season. This will be Farrell’s first career game against the Blue Jays.
The Toronto Blue Jays have scored 15 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last eight games. The Blue Jays have won 15 stright games when scoring four or more runs.

The Twins are 2-5 in their last 7 during game 3 of a series and 5-2 in their last 7 road games. The Blue Jays are 6-1 in their last 7 Sunday games and 7-0 in their last 7 during game 3 of a series. The over is 4-1 in Twins last 5 overall. The over is 5-1-3 in Blue Jays last 9 overall.
The Twins continue to pile up the losses and Farrell isn’t a pitcher you call to stop the bleeding. The Toronto Blue Jays remain one of the hotter teams in all of baseball, the offense is on fire and Berrios has allowed just 13 hits and six runs in his last 20.1 innings. Also a possible revenge game for Berrios, who spent his first five and a half seasons with the Twins. Give me the Blue Jays and the RL for max betting value.
