2 units on Minnesota -130 (moneyline) (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: WIN
Everything that went right for the Indians has gone wrong this season. They seem to have thrown in the towel at this point, and rumblings are that C.C. Sabathia may be moved before the trade deadline. This is a team that is just 15-28 over their last 43, and just 7-19 in their last 26 road games and have been swept on the road four times already. When they dealt Johan Santana, Minnesota was considered to be challenging for the basement. Wrong! The Twins have won 15 of their last 18 and keep playing well. The Twins are rallying on on both sides as they have outscored opponents 107-49 or 5.9 to 2.7. They aren't just winning they are averaging winning by better than three runs a game. We'll grab them at home in this one against a Tribe team that has dropped five straight.
