Major League Baseball Betting Odds Kansas City Royals vs Minnesota Twins Free Pick

Wednesday night baseball and we will see the Kansas City Royals take on the Minnesota Twins at Target Field in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Free Pick to follow. First pitch is scheduled for a 8:10 PM (Eastern) start time and the game will be televised on the locally.

Betting Odds

Kansas City                -105
Minnesota                  -105

Over/ Under: 8 O -115

This is game 3 of a 3 game series between these American League Central foes in which the Royals have taken the first 2. Overall now KC has won 3 in a row and they have taken back first place in the AL Central by a game over the Twins. Minnesota was really playing over their heads earlier, but now they come in slumping as they have won just 3 of their last 9 games. The Royals rank 8th in scoring (4.32 rpg), while on the mound they are 5th in ERA (3.39). Minnesota ranks 10th in scoring (4.28 rpg), while on the mound they are 14th in ERA (3.79).

Trends for this game include:  The Royals are 40-18 in their last 58 when their opponent scores 2 runs or less in their previous game and 20-9 in their last 29 road games vs. a right-handed starter. The Twins are 12-3 in their last 15 when their opponent allows 2 runs or less in their previous game and 8-2 in Gibson's last 10 starts during game 3 of a series, but just 5-16 in his last 21 starts vs. a team with a winning record. 

Taking the hill tonight for the Royals will be Edinson Volquez, who is 4-4 with a 3/76 ERA overall, while on the road he is 0-2 with a 4.12 ERA. Edinson is 1-1 with a 2.18 ERA in 3 career starts vs the Twins. 

Getting the ball for the Twins tonight will be Kyle Gibson, who is 4-3 with a 3.00 ERA on the year overall, while at home he is 3-1 with a 2.35 ERA in 6 starts. Kyle has had solid success vs the Royals, going 4-1 with  a 2.03 ERA in 5 starts vs them. 

Pick: I will be going with the under in this game. The Royals are starting to hit their stride with their pitching, while their offense is back to struggling as they have averaged just 2 rpg in their last 9 games. The Twins are also struggling on offense at the moment as they have scored a total of 7 runs in their last 4 games, which includes scoring just 1 total run in the first two games of this series. Volquez has a 2.18 ERA vs the Twins, while Gibson has pitched well at home and he has a 2.03 ERA in 5 starts vs the Royals. This all adds up to another low scoring game at Target Field between these teams.
