The Tigers and Royals feasted on the Twins while the Rangers made meal of the Astros, the Nationals feasted on the Braves and the Cubs painted the Reds black. Let’s see who did good and bad against who last year.

Twins 8-30 Mark vs. AL Central Foes Tigers, Royals Make Minnesota Fade-worthy in These Spots Again in 2017?
The MLB Regular Season is now a week old now, so let’s look at the best series and over Interleague records for the 30 teams in the league from last season with the idea of possibly using the strongest ones again this season in certain spots. The one team which had two -11 imbalances last year was the Twins (200/1 to win World Series, Heritage), who finished with the league’s worst mark (59-103)—although Minnesota is off to a perfect 4-0 start this season—and went 4-15 both against their AL Central rivals, the Tigers (53/1, BookMaker), and the Royals (70/1, BetDSI).

A couple of other interesting marks were José Altuve (8/1 AL MVP Winner, Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook) and the Astros combined 26-12 record against AL West California teams, Yoenis Céspedes (10/1 NL MVP, SuperBook) and the Mets being the only MLB team to go unbeaten against a for (6-0 vs. Reds) and the 14-6 Interleague records of Mookie Betts (4/1, AL MVP, SuperBook) and the Red Sox and Mark Trumbo (100/1, AL MVP, SuperBook) and the Orioles, as well as the AL’s Indians, Tigers, Mariners, Rangers and Blue Jays who all went 13-6 vs. the NL as the Junior Circuit embarrassed the Senior Circuit. Kris Bryant (9/4 NL MVP, SuperBook), Anthony Rizzo (10/1, NL MVP, SuperBook), Kyle Schwarber (100/1 NL MVP, SuperBook) and the world champion Cubs (+450, Bovada) were the only NL team with solid success (15-5) against the AL in 2016.
