Minnesota Twins vs New York Yankees Predictions & Picks

Minnesota Twins vs New York Yankees Predictions

Key Stat: Nestor Cortes has not played since August 21st for the Yankees

Tip Reasoning

  • New York’s most consistent pitcher has struggled with groin injury in the last three weeks
  • The visitors will start the match with the former Yankee Sonny Gray on the mound
  • Gray has what it takes to lead Minnesota to the first win of this series

New York Yankees and Minnesota Twins meet each other in the four-game series finale on Thursday evening at the Yankee Stadium. It will be the third clash between the two teams in just two days following yesterday’s double-header. The double-header was all about the New York side as the Yankees celebrated two wins to take the three-win lead in this series. The Twins will be highly motivated to bounce back and avoid the sweep this time around and they have several reasons to back them here.

Minnesota will send Sonny Gray to the mound tonight. Gray is 1-1 in his previous five starts in which he threw the ball better than in the season average. Gray used to wear the Yankees’ shirt in the past and he is an experienced pitcher who has had a 2.81 ERA in the previous five outings. He did not allow more than 21 hits in the previous 25.2 innings pitched. Since the Yankees will start the game with Nestor Cortes on the mound, we like the visitors’ chances of an upset here. Cortes has been struggling with groin injury of late and he has not been in action since August 21st. We will take the +120 odds offered for the Twins moneyline on Thursday.

Tip Reasoning

Key Stat: The Yankees will have a very important series against the Rays at the weekend

  • The Twins have the capacity to cause them problems
  • Nestor Cortes is probably not in his best form after the break caused by the groin injury
  • We like the odds and the lines offered for Minnesota’s runs here

The Yankees could face problems in defense here because we don’t know what physical condition or form their starting pitcher is in going into this tie. Also, the Twins have already scored four runs past them in the second game of the series (yesterday afternoon). Minnesota possess enough weapons to hurt the Yankees and they are by no means pushovers despite a streak of six defeats in the last seven outings. Last but not least, New York Yankees will have the weekend’s series against Tampa Bay Rays on their mind. The value is great with the Twins to score more than three runs tonight at the odds of +120.
