The San Francisco Giants and the Minnesota Twins meet in MLB action from Target Field on Tuesday night. Let’s dive into the odds, starting pitching matchup, history and make a prediction for this game.
Minnesota is listed as a -135 home favorite while San Francisco is a +115 road underdog. The total for this game is set at 7.5 runs.
Starting Pitching Matchup
Alex Cobb will start for the Giants and is 3-1 with a 1.94 ERA and 44 strikeouts this season. Minnesota will send Sonny Gray to the mound here and he is 4-0 with a 1.64 ERA and 60 strikeouts this season.
San Francisco’s 4-1 win on Monday snapped Minnesota’s three-game win streak in this head-to-head matchup.
San Francisco is 4-10 in their last 14 road games and 1-4 in their last 5 games against the AL Central while the under is 9-1 in their last 10 game two matchups. Minnesota is 4-1 in their last 5 home games and 4-0 in their last 4 game two matchups while the over is 5-1 in their last 6 interleague games.
I’m backing the under here. I think this has all of the makings of a rock solid pitcher’s duel as Alex Cobb’s pitched well on the road and Sonny Gray has established himself as the ace of the Twins rotation this season. All in all, I think we have a low-scoring battle on our hands, so give me the under here.
