The Minnesota Twins travel to play the Kansas City Royals in an AL Central series matchup. All spreads for all games can be found at Top Bet Sportsbook.
With the win on Sunday, the Twins took 2 of 3 from the Indians and have now won 5 of 6 overall. We will see if this good play can stick because the Twins have been up and down all season. Minnesota is clearly building on a young core and a member of that young core, Scott Diamond, pitched a goo game yesterday. Diamond pitched 7 innings and only allowed 3 runs in the win. Tonight the Twins will send another of those rookies to the hill. Cole DeVries will take the ball tonight for just his third career start. He had a solid start vs. the A’s his last time out and will look to build upon it.
The Royals are finally starting to play as people expected them to when the year started. They are trying to get both phases of the game clicking at the same time which has been a challenge to say the least this season. Vin Mazzaro pitched a solid game yesterday in a Royals win and the offense belted out 10 hits as well. The Royals will also be sending a rookie to the mound in Will Smith. Smith pitched a strong 6 innings to earn the win in his last start and will look to duplicate that tonight.
This game is a real toss up, but surprisingly the odds do not really reflect that. We liked what we saw from DeVries his last time out so we will take the Twins and their + odds at best online sportsbooks.
