3 units on Minnesota +123 (moneyline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: WIN
Livan Hernandez looks to redeem himself from an ugly performance last time out vs. the Rangers. In three home performances this year he's gone 6.7 innings per start and has allowed just three walks. The problem for Minnesota, of course, is their offense. The good news is they are batting .264 vs. RHP and the runs will start coming. They are getting 4.1 runs per game vs. division foers, against whom they are 9-6 thus far. The Tigers are just 39-44 the pats two seasons as a favorite of -100 to -150 while Hernandez is 9-2 as a home dog over that same span. We like the Twins at home tonight with him on the mound.
