3 units on Minnesota +1.5 runs -129 (runline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: win
The Twins have caught fire as they have now posted wins in eight of their last 10 games, five in a row and the first two in this series. The pitching has been outstanding as they have allowed just nine runs in the five-game winning streak and have held Arizona to just three runs in the first two games here. The D-Backs have really struggled after an early big start, as they are just 9-16 over their last 25 and an even worse 6-15 in their last 21 on the road. Brandon Webb has been great, but hasn't won since June 6, and over his last three has pitched to a 6.46 ERA. The D-Backs won the first nine games that Webb started, but have been just 2-4 since and just 1-3 in his last four road starts. Good value here on the Twins.
