As the Detroit Tigers and Minnesota Twins square off, this MLB betting consultant shares an outstanding money line underdog betting angle which has cashed 65% of the time since 1997.
AL Central Battle at Target Field in Minnesota
The Minnesota Twins (8-10) host the Detroit Tigers (13-6) on Monday at 8:10 PM ET. This will be the opener of a three game series between these AL Central rivals. According to early MLB odds, Detroit is a -160 money line favorite, and the posted total is 7.5. The Tigers swept the Twins in a 3-game series in Detroit earlier this month, and dominated them by a cumulative score of 22-1.
Starting Pitcher Matchup
The Tigers will go with southpaw David Price on the mound for Monday’s game. Price is 3-1 in his four team starts this season with a solid 3.28 ERA. The Detroit hurler went 4-1 versus Minnesota a season ago, posting an outstanding 1.86 ERA, an excellent 0.85 WHIP, and a better than 6:1 strikeout to walk ratio. Price will be facing a Twins team tonight that averages drawing 2.9 walks per game. He’s gone a perfect 10-0 in his team starts the past three seasons versus an opponent that draws an average of 3.0 or less walks per outing.
Minnesota will start Tommy Milone in tonight’s divisional game versus the Tigers. Milone is 2-1 in his team starts this season with a stellar 3.37 ERA. Milone has gone an impressive 5-1 in his career team starts versus Detroit with a very good 2.67 ERA, and all of those outings have taken place since 2012. The Twins hurler is 39-17 in his career team starts during night games.
MLB Money Line Betting System
The Twins have left 12 and 11 men on base in their last two games, and their bullpen allowed no earned runs during their 4-2 win at Seattle on Sunday. The combination of these three factors qualifies the home underdog Twins for a very profitable betting system, and I won’t ignore this handicapping tool when making my MLB picks on Monday.
Any money line home underdog of +125 or more, coming off two games in which they left ten or more men on base on each occasion, and their bullpen allowed no earned runs in their previous game, resulted in that home underdog going 28-15 (65.1%) since 1997.
