Baseball betting on Monday includes the home opener for the Minnesota Twins as they host the Seattle Mariners.
The Twins have owned the Mariners of late in Minnesota in online baseball betting, winning 8 of the last 10 meetings. This baseball betting matchup has Felix Hernandez going for the Mariners while Scott Bakers starts for the Twins.
Baseball betting trends tell us that the Twins have won 12 of the last 20 games against Seattle overall. Minnesota was an excellent team for baseball betting gamblers at home last season as they went 53-28. The Twins had very good offensive numbers a year ago ranking 4th in the league in runs scored. Their pitching was pretty good as well, ranking 13th in the league as baseball betting stats indicate. The offense was led by Joe Mauer and Justin Morneau a year ago as baseball betting numbers indicate. Mauer’s status for the early part of the season is up in the air but it is pretty clear he will not be helping the Twins much in the early part of 2009. Minnesota will need better pitching this season, especially early when Mauer is out. Scott Baker led the team in wins and ERA a year ago as online baseball betting stats indicate.
Not much went right for the Mariners a year ago in baseball odds. They couldn’t score and they gave up way too many runs. They were awful on the road a year ago as they went 26-55 in baseball betting. Seattle does have Felix Hernandez who can impact the online baseball betting odds when he starts. Offensively the Mariners were led a year ago by Adrian Beltre as baseball betting stats indicate. The Mariners are hoping the addition of Ken Griffey Jr. will spark their weak offense into action. The Mariners made some off season changes and not all of them were positive as Seattle lost closer J.J. Putz to free agency.
There is a huge over online baseball betting trend in this matchup. The baseball betting over is 16-3-1 in the last 20 meetings between the two teams. The last six meetings between the two teams at Minnesota all went over the baseball betting total.
