MIN (-150) @ caesars

This is an 8* CUSTOMER APPRECIATION PLAY on the Twins.

The Red Sox have won nine in a row, but after taking the first four games of this four-game series, we're expecting a predictable letdown here.

Especially with a four-game series against the White Sox at home the following night.

But after five-straight losses, the panic button has been smashed in Minnesota obviously.

And with a tough six-game road trip starting at the Angels the following night, it absolutely puts added importance onto this Thursday afternoon contest.

But beyond the motivational edges Minnesota owns in this one, it also definitely has the superior starting pitcher on the hill in this one.

Michael Pineda is 1-0 with a 1.62 ERA. He's pitched 11 innings so far this season and has a sharp 11:2 K:BB.

His counterpart Garrett Richards is 0-1 with a 10.95 ERA this year. He has a poor 6:5 K:BB ratio.

All things considered, this price should in fact be much larger in our opinion.

The play is MINNESOTA.

Good luck, NP


What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
We are constantly evaluating online sportsbooks and line feeds to ensure accuracy with our Expert picks. We typically have between 5-10 legal and reputable sportsbooks for our handicappers to select lines from. They are required to select the current line from these featured books so authenticity can always be confirmed – no stale lines!
