Kansas City Royals vs. Minnesota Twins
The Minnesota Twins have already had a lengthy Over the total streak earlier this season and they are in the midst of another one right now and one that is worth riding in this Saturday game against the Kansas City Royals. Dillon Gee is certainly not the definition of a shutdown arm in the Major Leagues and he’s been hit hard lately allowing 25 runs in his last 29.2 innings of work over a span of six starts and the Over is 4-2 in those games. Gee was lit up by this surging Minnesota lineup when he faced them earlier this season back in May here a Target Field as he yielded 6 runs on 10 hits in just 4 innings.

I expect Minnesota’s lineup which has pounded out 57 runs in their last 10 games to produce once again here. On the flip side, Tyler Duffey has not been immune to struggles and has been hit hard as of late as well surrendering 21 runs in his last 22 innings pitched and he also has a very shaky track record against the opposing lineup as the Royals connected for 5 runs on 9 hits in 6.2 innings when they faced him earlier this season. Kansas City’s bullpen has not been the same since the injuries to Luke Hochevar and closer Wade Davis and Minnesota’s bullpen has been leaky all season which should allow for late run scoring potential too in a game that should fly up and Over the total with MLB odds at 9. Take the over for your MLB pick.
