MLB betting odds are likely to favor the Twins since they are a strong home team while the Astros are weak on the road.
MLB odds scheduling tells us that the Astros are playing the 8th game of their nine-game road trip on Saturday. The Astros have traditionally not played well at Minnesota. Before this sports betting series began the Astros had won only three of the last ten games at the Metrodome versus the MLB odds. The two teams have not met in Minnesota since 2001 and the Twins won two of those three games versus the MLB betting odds. The teams last met in 2006 in Houston and the Twins took two of the three versus the MLB odds and one of those games had Roy Oswalt on the mound for Houston.
Houston has really not done anything to show they are a contender this season in the National League Central. The Astros do have Oswalt to lead the pitching staff but overall the team’s pitching numbers are weak as MLB odds stats show. MLB odds show that the offensive numbers for Houston are even more disappointing as the Astros have a lot of talent. With a lineup that includes Lance Berkman, Miguel Tejada, Hunter Pence and Carlos Lee, the Astros should be scoring runs in bunches but they are not. They rank in the bottom third in the league though in runs scored as MLB odds and it is only a matter of time before something has to change in Houston.
Minnesota has excelled this season versus the MLB odds at home but struggled on the road. The Twins are still in the mix though in the American League Central versus the MLB odds. The Twins have been hitting the ball well this season as they rank right around the Top 10 in runs scored as MLB odds stats tell us. The problem for Minnesota in MLB odds has been pitching. The Twins have been below average in runs allowed as MLB betting odds stats indicate.
