The Cleveland Guardians and Minnesota Twins meet Saturday in MLB action at Target Field. Let’s preview this game and give out a pick and prediction.
Cleveland Guardians Betting Preview
The Cleveland Guardians have scored 18 runs in their last 3 games and 4 or more runs in 5 of their last 6 games. The Guardians have split their last 8 games when scoring 4 or more runs. Steven Kwan leads the Guardians with 59 hits and 17 RBI, while Jose Ramirez and Amed Rosario have combined for 104 hits and 43 RBI. Logan Allen gets the ball, and he is 2-2 with a 2.72 ERA and 43 strikeouts this season. This will be Allen’s second career game against the Twins.
Minnesota Twins Betting Preview
The Minnesota Twins have scored 16 runs in their last 3 games and 4 or more runs in 5 of their last 10 games. The Twins have won 6 straight games when scoring 4 or more runs. Byron Buxton leads the Twins with 40 hits and 23 RBI, while Carlos Correa and Donovan Solano have combined for 75 hits and 34 RBI. Sonny Gray gets the ball, and he is 4-0 with a 1.94 ERA and 69 strikeouts this season. Gray is 6-4 with a 3.63 ERA and 89 strikeouts in his career against the Guardians.
The Guardians are 3-10 in their last 13 road games and 19-7 in their last 26 during game 3 of a series. The Twins are 2-6 in their last 8 games following a win and 4-1 in their last 5 overall. The over is 5-2 in Guardians last 7 road games. The under is 5-1 in Twins last 6 games following a win. The Guardians are 5-2 in the last 7 meetings in Minnesota and 11-4 in the last 15 meetings.
You can make a case for either side here, as Logan Allen and Sonny Gray have been both fabulous this season. However, the Twins are doing a better job of finishing games this week and Gray has been slightly more impressive. Gray has a 1.94 ERA and 1.19 WHIP through 60.1 innings, as he’s likely going to make his third all star game, and he’s a candidate right now for CY Young. Give me the Twins at home and the cheap price.
