2010 Season MLB Baseball Past Picks

Minnesota at Cleveland
Sunday 08/08 01:05 PM Eastern
3 units on Minnesota -155 (moneyline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: WIN
The Twins enter this game at .500 on the road. That's better than Cleveland can do at home. The Indians simply can't hit and that's not good when facing a team that allows just 4.1 runs per game on the season (down to 3.7 over the Twins' last seven games). Brian Duensing has gone 4-1 for Minnesota, posting a 2.10 ERA. In contrast, David Huff is 2-10 on the season. He has just 36 strikeouts on the season (just 2.57 per start). That's good news for the Twinkies who are 11-1 this season when squaring off against a starter that averages under 3 Ks per game. Minny is also 30-12 this season as a favorite of -125 to -175. I like the Twins to get the road win here.
