Twins at Yankees Over 9 minus $1.20

Hard to believe, but the Twins have only gone under the total once during their last 19 games. The over is 16-1-2 in Minnesota’s past 19 games. This may be the biggest below-the-radar streak of the season.

It’s a string worth riding especially given the starting pitching matchup and the Twins’ horrendous bullpen.

Twins starter Ervin Santana is clearly on the downside of his career. He’s in bad form, too, giving up 27 runs in his last 35 innings. The Yankees just saw him last week. The Yankees get a boost to their offense with the expected return today of Mark Teixeira.

The Yankees have scored 37 runs in their last six games, an average of 6.1 runs per game. No bullpen has allowed more runs this season than the Twins.

Yankees starter Michael Pineda has a 6.20 home ERA and a 4.09 lifetime ERA versus the Twins. The only consistent thing about Pineda is his inconsistency.
