The New York Yankees need one more victory to sweep Minnesota in a four-game series and after scoring 20 runs in the previous three games, they have a decent chance at achieving this victory. The Twins are struggling to contain Robinson Cano but so far they failed miserably, hence the three defeats.
Bet: NY Yankees
Odds: Winner Sports 2.00
The Yankees will give David Phelps another chance to prove his worth after the starting pitcher split his ten decisions and has conceded an average of five runs per game. He is relatively young and was lucky to enjoy plenty of support from offensive teammates, but he needs to step up his efforts against Minnesota. Following the lopsided defeat in game one, the Twins rebounded and although failed in both games, the visitors had to settle for narrow margin victories.
Tonight the hosts have two worry not only about Robinson Cano and his red-hot bat, but also about their own starting pitcher. Rookie Kyle Gibson is chasing his second victory in 2013 but he depends on his teammates to keep him alive, and the bullpen to seal the deal. So far both of them failed him and despite posting an ERA of 3.00, he has no reasons to be confident ahead of this fixture. Gibson won’t pitch too deep in this game as he is very likely to be replaced before the sixth inning, so the Twins need to take an early lead if they are to end the slide.
Not too often we are provided with even odds for a New York Yankees victory especially when they are riding a three games winning streak. Back the visitors with Winner Sports and wait for Minnesota to suffer its fifth consecutive defeat before cashing in your profits.
