Cleveland Guardians vs. Minnesota Twins Prediction

We have early MLB today and the NBA draft, which means this could be the best day in sports gambling history. The first thing we need to do is to gamble on the early baseball games. Lucky for us, I found a gem of a pick to start our day off.

The Cleveland Guardians vs. the Minnesota Twins will take place from Minnesota for the final game of this three-game set. The Guardians have two come-from-behind wins in this series and will look for the sweep today. Cleveland has to be the most surprising team in the majors this season. Coming into this year they were slated to be one of the worst teams in baseball.

The Twins have also overachieved in the eyes of many this season. The Central appears to be wide open with the White Sox struggling to find their identity. Cleveland has been led by All-Star third baseman Jose Ramirez. Ramirez has turned in another outstanding season so far. The pitching for Clevland has been much better than expected as well. They look to stay hot today and get a sweep behind the arm of Zach Plesac. The Twins have seen their off moves payoff to this point. Carlos Correa has been great in leading the team. Garry Sanchez and Gio Urshela are two guys the team added from New York, and they have played their roles well. The Twins send southpaw Devin Smeltzer to the mound today to try and avoid the sweep. 

I am backing the Twins today on the moneyline.

If you have had the Twins the last two days, I am sorry. They blew multiple-run leads after the seventh inning in both games. They should be winning this series 2-0. Instead, they try and avoid the sweep today. I believe they respond to two bad losses and play their best game at home today. I believe the line is suggesting it is a Twins play as well. Despite Plesac being the better arm, we see the Twins at -130 here. Their offense is swinging the bats really well at the moment, and if their pitching can be decent today, we will cruise to a win. Let’s keep things rolling!
