Minnesota Twins vs New York Yankees Predictions
Key Stat: The Twins have lost four of their last five matches
- They only managed two runs in yesterday’s loss at Yankee Stadium
- The Yankees are among the best home teams in the entire league
- New York will have reliable Gerrit Cole on the hill tonight
New York Yankees limited Minnesota Twins to just two runs in an easy 5-2 victory in the first of four-game series last night at Yankee Stadium. Aaron Judge stole the show at the opposite end, getting two hits and runs apiece to complement Jameson Taillon’s fine pitching performance on the evening. The Yankees will now be hoping to make it two wins in two ties against the American League rivals on Tuesday evening when the two teams meet each other once again at the same venue.
The Twins have not been in the best rhythm of late. They lost four of the last five league outings. Minnesota’s batters have failed to secure more than two runs in two of the last three matches. They will be up against Gerrit Cole who is enjoying a solid campaign for the Yankees this season. Cole is 10-7 this season with phenomenal strikeout rate. Cole has secured 204 strikeouts in 164.2 innings pitched this season. We expect him to take the New York side to another success against the Twins here. The home win in -1.5 run line is paid at the +115 odds.
Key Stat: Joe Ryan and Gerrit Cole are two quality pitchers
- They have similar stats throughout the season
- We believe they will have what it takes to make the job tougher for the rivaling batters tonight
- The Yankees have had two consecutive 2-1 scorelines before beating the Twins 5-2 last night
Minnesota Twins will also send a decent pitching option to the hill on Tuesday. Their Joe Ryan has very similar stats to Gerrit Cole. In fact, both pitchers are at a 10-7 record for their teams so far in the season. Ryan is at a 3.88 ERA and a 1.14 WHIP this term. Knowing that the Yankees did not quite shine offensively in the last couple of weeks either, we don’t expect them to produce more than five runs tonight, especially not when they come face to face with Ryan. We will thus go with the Under 6.5 runs in the match at the odds of +105.
