MLB Betting: Minnesota Twins vs. Milwaukee Brewers- June 2nd, 2014

With a full card of MLB action on Monday, there are some interesting games to look at, and one of them that I’ll have my eye on is the game between the Minnesota Twins and the Milwaukee Brewers. The Brewers have been great when they are scoring runs, four to be exact, and if they can keep that rolling then I think they’ll do enough to knock off the Twins. This is the start of a four-game home and home series between these two teams, and the action starts off in Milwaukee for the first two before moving to Minnesota for the final two. The opening game of this series is going to start on Monday night at 7:20pm EST.

The Twins haven’t had much success in interleague play, as they’ve gone just 2-6 this season, but they are coming off of a nice rally in the ninth inning to beat the New York Yankees 7-2 in their previous game. They’ll be sending right hander Kyle Gibson to the mound, who has a 4-4 record with a 4.18 ERA. The Twins as a whole are 26-28 this season, and last time Gibson pitched he threw a gem. He went six scoreless innings, but ended up getting a no-decision on a 1-0 loss. He’s never pitched against the Brewers before in his career.

On the other side of things, the Brewers have been hitting the ball excellent lately, as they’ve scored six or more runs in six of their previous seven games. They’ve been doing this without Aramis Ramirez as well, who should be back to the team on Wednesday. Milwaukee is sending Matt Garza to the mound, who was actually drafted by the Twins originally, and spent his first two seasons of his career there. He’s gone 2-4 this season with a 4.84 ERA, but there’s some good news for him. The current players on the Twins’ roster have gone 3-30 with 11 strikeouts against Garza. He’s also pitched well against his old team, with an ERA of 2.57, but just an 0-1 record.


With how the Brewers are hitting the ball, it’s tough to bet against them. I also love the angle that the Twins players have struggled against Garza, and I think this really just sets up well for Milwaukee. They are the better team with a 34-23 record, they are at home, and while we have to give up odds of -148, I believe it’s worth it. I’m taking the Brewers to get the win here.
