4 units on Minnesota -209 (moneyline) (risk 4 to return 4) RESULT: WIN
The A's have been offensively inept over the past several weeks, pushing them from wild-card contenders to near the bottom of the league looking down at only Kansas City and Seattle - not very good company. The A's won here last night and have not won two in a row since July 8, and have only beaten one team with a winning record in back-to-back games since May 25th! The tally for the A's offense is 85 runs in their last 31 games, or 2.7 a game. It is hard to find the win column that way. One thing about the Twins is that they haven't lost back-to-back games to a team at home with a losing record all season, and this won't be where that streak ends. The Twins get redemption.
