Yankees at Twins picks and predictions

Prediction

Gemini 5, Yankees 4

Moneyline

Minnesota is 9-3 over its last twelve home games.

The Yankees have an easy schedule so far when it comes to pitching, so New York’s offensive numbers need to be lowered a bit.

Stroman has spent too many bases on balls and is the weaker side of this starter’s game. Over his last four starts, he has recorded a 5.31 ERA while allowing an OPS of .967. And he’s backed by a Yankee bullpen that has shown some warts of late. That New York relief corps owns the league’s second-best ERA (2.63), but that area number doesn’t hold up. Yankee relievers are buoyed by a .243 batting average on balls in play, and their 3.6 BB/9 allows for too many base runners.

The Twins have not lost in a row at home since April 8 and 9.

TAKE MINNESOTA (-112).

Run line/Against the spread

PASSAGE: Better relative value can be found in the less drowned ML prices.

Top/Bottom

Stroman and the Yankee pen play in an Over lean, and the Over has taken 10 of New York’s last 14 games at Target Field.

The Yanks’ offense is at its best against right-handers, and both lineups have solid match histories against the mentioned starters.

TAKE THE OVER 8 (-108).
