MLB Baseball Gambling Total: 10
The Yankees are just 2-8 over their last 10 and that stretch of poor play has knocked them down to 4th in the AL East. New York is still within a game of the wild card berth however, so a win on Monday afternoon in a untimely scheduled make-up game.
The Twins dropped two of three at home to Kansas City over the weekend, but they haven’t played bad on the road lately. Minnesota has won 4 of 5 away from Target Field and they may get kind of a deflated Yankees squad in this quick one-game set.
The Yankees played until past midnight ET on Sunday, losing 7-6 to drop the Subway Series against the Mets. That’s a quick turnaround for New York with Monday’s 2:05 PM ET start, so the Twins could have a nice advantage against a tired team.
Minnesota didn’t show much to justify backing the +160 price tag, dropping 2 of 3 to the Royals. The Twins have also dropped 5 of 6 to the Yankees this season, including getting swept in three games in the Bronx last month.
The Twins have lost 3 of the 4 John Gant starts, but the right-hander has pitched much better in his last two. Gant allowed 8 total ER in two starts since coming over from St. Louis and coming out of the bullpen, but has held the Cubs to 2 and the Indians to 0 ER over his last two outings, going 5.0 IP in both games.
New York Yankees
New York needs the win on a quick turnaround to keep pace in the wild card race but nobody would blame them for coming out flat. Not only did Sunday night’s game end on Monday morning, it was an emotional weekend against the Mets on the 9/11 anniversary weekend.
Even so, it’s back to business for the Yankees who have lost 8 of their last 9 overall. New York has been favored in 8 of their lost 9, and have suffered some pretty devastating (and costly defeats), losing 4-3 and 8-7 to the Orioles priced at -335 and -321.
The Yankees did get a 7-5 win over the Twins in a John Gant start on August 19th, taking a 4-0 run in the 3rd and being up 6-0 by the 4th inning. Anthony Rizzo has the most experience against Gant from his time with the Cubs, and he’s hit them well going 6 of 13 (.462) with a HR.
Rookie Luis Gil will try to make his first bounce back start after giving up the first runs of his MLB career last time out. Gil had started off the year with three straight scoreless starts over 15.2 IP, but got struck for 3 over 3.1 IP last time out against Toronto.

Free Minnesota Twins vs. New York Yankees MLB Prediction:
The Twins were embarrassed in their last trip to Yankee Stadium, but New York was in the midst of a hot streak during that visit. That is not the case for New York now, as they had dropped 7 in a row prior to Saturday’s win over the Mets.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Twins +160
New York has the quick turnaround and had the emotional drain of the Subway Series and on 9/11 remembrance weekend. There will be a hangover.
