Pick
MIN (-135) @ Betamerica

I'm playing on MINNESOTA. A date with the Detroit Tigers should be exactly what Shoemaker and the Twins need. While the Twins still have hope to turn things around, the Tigers already know that its going to be a long season. Minnesota knows that it needs to take advantage of these games. Shoemaker tossed a gem here to begin the season. He allowed just three hits and only one earned run, through six complete innings. He struck out five and didn't walk a batter. The Twins won 15-6. Shoemaker should get solid run support once again as Skubal is really struggling this season. I successfully played on the Yankees (-1.5 runs) the last time that Skubal was on the mound. Here's an excerpt from that game: "... Skubal, on the other hand, has already walked 12 batters in 19 innings. He's 0-3 with a 5.21 ERA and 1.58 WHIP. For his career, he's 1-7 with a 5.47 ERA. More? Skubal has the support of a Detroil bullpen which has a horrible 7.72 ERA and 1.930 WHIP on the road ... The Tigers have lost Skubal's three 2021 starts by scores of 8-4, 11-3 and 9-3. Expect another blowout ... " Sure enough, Skubal got rocked (3 HRs in 3 innings!) and the Tigers lost 10-0. The Tigers gave up 12 runs yesterday, allowing "double-digits" for the second time in the 3-game series against Boston. They're an ugly 9-27 their last 36, after allowing 10 or more runs in their previous game. Shoemaker's teams are 6-1 over his career against the Tigers, including 3-0 the last three. His teams won those games by a combined score of 28-6, Shoemaker allowed just a single run in the 19 combined innings. Twins bounce back.

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.
