Detroit Tigers +235 / Minnesota Twins -255 O/U: 9.5
The Minnesota Twins and the Detroit Tigers will meet up to continue their MLB series on Saturday.
In the Friday opener of this set, the Twins banged out 14 hits on the way to a big 6-3 victory.
For Saturday’s game, the Twins will be going with Kyle Gibson in the start. Over his 62.1 innings and 6-2 record this year, Gibson has a 3.75 ERA With 63 Ks and 15 BBs.
Minnesota scored runs in four different innings in the Friday victory. Mitch Garver finished with three hits, three RBI and a two-run homer, and Marwin Gonzalez hit four times and logged an RBI.
For Saturday’s game one, the Tigers will be going with Buck Farmer in the start. Across his 3-4 mark and 5.01 ERA this year, Farmer has 25 Ks.
Detroit had a nice total of 11 hits in the Friday defeat and couldn’t keep any rallies going. Miguel Cabrera led the team with three hits and also had a run.
The Twins are 10-1 in their last 11 Saturday games and 6-1 in their last seven in game two of a series. Minnesota is 4-1 in Gibson’s last five starts and 7-2 in his last nine road starts.
Meanwhile, the Tigers are 15-36 in their last 51 in game two of a series and 0-4 in their last four Saturday games. The under is 3-1-2 in the Tigers’ last six in game two of a series and Detroit is 1-4 in Gibson’s last five road starts versus the team.
Gibson had a couple of less-than-stellar outings in May, with seven earned in a span of 11.2 innings. Since then, he’s been great over his last pair of starts, with one earned in 12.0 innings on 11 hits.
I like Gibson to come out strong here so I’m taking the Twins for the Saturday victory.
