Minnesota at Cleveland

1 unit on Cleveland -105 (moneyline) (risk 1 to return 1.95) RESULT: LOSS
Minnesota is 5-8 on the road and the Twins are 3-8 away against a left-handed starter. They face veteran lefty Bruce Chen, making his first start of the 2015 campaign. The 37-year-old went 2-1 with 23 strikeouts and just three walks in 31 innings with Triple-A Columbus. He's been very good wherever he's gone or been called up - a reliable arm. The Indians are 4-1 after a defeat and 52-24 at home versus a team with a road winning percentage of less than .400. Minnesota is stuck with righty Phil Hughes (1-4, 5.02 ERA) and the Twins are 1-5 in his six starts, 0-4 on the road. The Twins are also 2-5 in the last seven meetings in Cleveland, so grab home field and play on Cleveland.
