The Minnesota Twins breakout season has been awesome for fans to watch and are on pace for their best finish since 2010 (94-68). They now sit on top of the AL Central by just 0.5 games leading the Cleveland Indians. That situation will most likely lead to a neck and neck race right down until late September. Trying to maintain their lead here, they will send Jose Berrios (10-6, 3.29 ERA) to the hill who is having a great season for the Twins.
Berrios is coming off a nice start last time out where he conceded only 3 runs in 6 strong innings against an excellent Indians batting lineup. This looks like an awesome spot to continue his great season as Berrios has been lights-out against the Rangers in his career. In 73 batters faced, he has only given up a .173 average and a modest .215 OBP. Berrios will certainly be looking to continue those trends when he takes the mound on Saturday.
The Texas Rangers have not been in good form as of late and have likely killed off their hopes of October baseball with their recent 3-7 run in the last 10. The players, on the other hand, likely won’t have given up hope yet and will be heavily motivated to put on a good show against the Twins. Trying to keep their slim hopes alive, the Rangers will send Ariel Jurado (6-8, 5.31 ERA) to the mound who is not having the season he would have liked.
Jurado has also not been at his best lately, conceding 8 runs and 11 hits in 3 2/3 innings against the Blue Jays on Monday. Given the Twins excellent batting lineup, the Texans will need much better then that on Saturday night.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Twins are 5-1 in their last 6 road games vs. a right-handed starter.
- Twins are 6-1 in Berrios’ last 7 road starts vs. a team with a losing record.
- Rangers are 0-5 in their last 5 games vs. a team with a winning % above .600.
- Rangers are 1-6 in Jurados last 7 starts.
- Rangers are 2-6 in their last 8 games with Hoberg behind home plate.
Free Minnesota Twins vs. Texas Rangers MLB Prediction:
I think the Twins will see the back of Jurado by the 4th inning and will likely rough up the relief pitchers as well. Look for the Twins to win this one in a blowout and take them on the RL.
