The Boston Red Sox and the Minnesota Twins meet on Sunday for the finale of the four-game series. All odds and trends for this and all games can be found at Bovada sportsbook.
The Red Sox are riding a four game losing streak and are strictly playing for pride from here on out. They did receive a good start from pitcher Clay Buchholz yesterday, but the bats were dead to say the least. They look to avoid asleep this afternoon behind the arm of Franklin Morales. Yes what time between the starting rotation of the bullpen as visions with 3.32 ERA 57 innings of work.
Twins are playing good baseball as of late and are showing it this weekend in Boston. They scored 6 runs on 12 hits as a team and came back against the Boston bullpen on Saturday. The Twins will start Nick Blackburn who has been thoroughly pummeled in his last three starts. He is pitching to an eye-popping 7.43 ERA and 82 innings of work this season.
Boston is 3-7 in their last 10 games four of a series, 2-7 in their last nine home games, and 0-8 in their last eight games against a team with a losing record. Minnesota is 7-2 in their last nine games overall, 5-2 in their last seven road games, and 8-3 in Blackburn’s last 11 starts. Minnesota is 4-10 in their last 14 games in Boston.
We know Blackburn has been awful lately, but what justifies Boston being this much of a favor? We like Minnesota as a value pick as moneyline underdogs at online sports books.
