TBS is televising the Twins and Yankees and it should be a good matchup in MLB props and futures between two of the best teams in the American League.
Betting Major League Baseball is often times more profitable on the Twins than on the Yankees. New York is almost always favored and they are overvalued. Laying money in MLB props and futures is a tough way to win consistently when betting Major League Baseball.
The Twins are expected to send Nick Blackburn to the mound on Sunday. He is 3-1 on the season with a 4.76 ERA. In his last start he was very good as he threw seven shutout innings in a 6-0 win against Baltimore last Sunday. He gave up just four hits and two walks. He will be pitching on six days rest since the Twins were off on Monday and Thursday this past week. Those betting Major League Baseball should be aware that Blackburn has definitely liked pitching in the month of May has he has a career record of 7-3 with an ERA of 2.88 in the month of May in his career.
Before this series began the Twins had not had much success against New York. In fact, they had lost the last ten games against the Yankees. They were swept in last year’s playoffs against New York, losing 4-1, 4-3 and 7-2. All three of those playoff games went under the total for those betting Major League Baseball.
Since the Yankees had to play a doubleheader on Wednesday against Detroit they were unsure of who would start on Sunday. Part of that uncertainty was because of the injury to starting pitcher Andy Pettitte. He was expected to return in this series against the Twins though. He had to leave his start on May 5th against the Orioles in the fifth inning. "I didn't feel anything in my work in between or in the downhill [session]," Pettitte said. "It's just been starting the games, for some reason, after I get cranked up. I guess it's the adrenaline of the game."
Minnesota has been a solid road team this season while the Yankees have been excellent at home. That definitely makes for an interesting matchup for those betting Major League Baseball with the Twins and Yankees.
