The Line: Minnesota Twins -142 / Milwaukee Brewers +132 --- Over/Under: 9
The Milwaukee Brewers and Minnesota Twins meet Saturday in MLB action at Target Field.
The Milwaukee Brewers look to stay hot after winning six of their last eight games. The Brewers have scored 17 runs in their last three games and five or more runs in six of their last eight games. The Milwaukee Brewers have won eight straight games when scoring at leas three runs. Lorenzo Cain leads the Brewers with 42 hits and 14 RBI while Travis Shaw and Christian Yelich have combined for 79 hits and 44 RBI. Freddy Peralta gets the ball, and he is 1-0 with a 0.00 ERA and 13 strikeouts this season. This will be Peralta’s first career game against the Twins.
The Minnesota Twins need a win here after losing four of their last five games. The Twins have scored 12 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 13 games. The Minnesota Twins have won eight of their last 11 games when scoring at least three runs. Eddie Rosario leads the Twins with 46 hits and 27 RBI while Eduardo Escobar and Brian Dozier have combined for 82 hits and 37 RBI. Fernando Romero gets the ball, and he is 2-0 with a 0.54 ERA and 20 strikeouts this season. This will be Romero’s first career game against the Brewers.
The Brewers are 10-4 in their last 14 during game 2 of a series, 9-2 in their last 11 road games and 6-2 in their last 8 overall. The Twins are 15-5 in their last 20 interleague games, 10-4 in their last 14 interleague home games and 2-6 in their last 8 home games. The Brewers are 2-4 in the last 6 meetings in Minnesota, 1-5 in the last 6 meetings and the over is 19-9-5 in the last 33 meetings.
We're getting a red hot Milwaukee Brewers club with the plus money, which sounds good to me. Not to mention Peralta looks to be a possible star in the making, as he hed the Rockies to zero runs and one hit in 5.1 innings while striking out 13 batters. The 21-year-old has a live arm and should be a guy you're looking to bet often if he keeps it up. I don't care what the Twins have going on, I'm taking the Brewers at this price.
