Minnesota Twins vs Cleveland Guardians Prediction

This is certainly worth the juice. Where do I begin? We’ll start by mentioning that Minnesota has only scored 5+ runs one time in their last 10 games. That’s a 90% hit rate for us in the last 10. In that span, they have averaged just 3.2 runs per game which is far from the 5+ they would need to break our heart today. They’ve been winning low-scoring games due to their pitching playing out of their mind this year, don’t be fooled by their record and get scared here to lay the juice.

McKenzie certainly is a guy we have faded more than we have backed but there’s cause to be optimistic today. He faced off against Minnesota twice last year and only 1 allowed run in each game and went 6 innings in both. If he duplicates last year's performances I like our odds. McKenzie has a 2.76 ERA this year and has only allowed 2 runs in his last two starts over 12.1 innings pitched. I think he is slowly becoming a very solid pitcher in this league and I’m looking forward to seeing how he progresses throughout the season.

I know juice like this is unplayable to some but I see such a massive edge here. It’s not often we lose ones juiced this big but I understand the hesitation if it’s not something you’re used to doing. Minnesota missing in 9 of 10 and McKenzie's great history vs them aren’t the only edges here. Minnesota is at home and pitching Joe Ryan who I also love. There’s a chance that he pitches so well that Minnesota might not even bat in the bottom of the 9th so they’d need 5+ runs possibly in eight innings, that’s tough. I absolutely love this bet and think it should be in the -200s. I will gladly drink every bit of the juice here and go in confident here.
