MLB Tips

Tampa Bay Rays @ Minnesota Twins

The Tampa Bay Rays and the Minnesota Twins are scheduled to meet on Friday evening in North America. The pitching match-up is not a bad one from Tampa Bay's perspective as they will send Chris Archer to the mound. He has a 3.76 ERA and 77 strikeouts on the season, better stats than those of his counterpart Hector Santiago (3.96 and 33 strikeouts).

The Twins are a division-leading team, but they can be picked on at home. They are just 11-13 when hosting while doing the majority of their damage as visitors. Tampa Bay isn't good on the road, but they certainly aren't egregious at 9-12. This .500 team has done well of late, winning two in a row and six of their last ten.

For betting odds, you can get the Rays at $2.20 to cover a -1.5 runline. Until the Twins start doing better at home, they can be picked on. On their most recent homestand they did lose three of six by at least two runs, so $2.20 at -1.5 looks good with TB sending out a quality pitcher.


The Texas Rangers are the team of the moment in the American League as baseball fans look forward to the week of May 22. The Rangers have won nine of their last ten games to improve to .533 on the season. They remain a full six games back of the division-leading Houston Astros, however, a situation that does make it hard to find some good antepost angles on the Rangers. In the American League's divisional races right now, it seems that the team that is the most under-rated of them all is the Minnesota Twins.

The Twins have put together a consistent opening 7-8 weeks of the 2017 Major League Baseball season. Over their last ten games they have won six and that's a better mark than their main divisional foes. Playing .550 baseball through the May 21 games, the Twins are marginal leaders in their division, ahead of the Cleveland Indians. Those Indians are a team that have thus far failed to live up to pre-season hype, although they are still playing .548 ball.

For betting odds, you can get the Twins at $15.00 with Unibet to win their division. Those odds have to be called very long as teams are now passed the 25% mark of the season. A division leader at this point can only rarely be considered 14-1 longshots, despite the length of the Major League Baseball season. If you start with each team having an even shot, then teams are only 4-1 from that point of view. But surely Minnesota playing the best through the opening stretch of the season counts for much. Clearly, they are better than what odds of $15.00 implies with Unibet.

In the National League, there's no team that's smoking-red hot. But the value appears to remain with betting against the Chicago Cubs to win their division. The Brewers are out at $26.00 with Unibet and are a team that's taking in some bets. Last week in our update we noted $51.00 with Milwaukee with William Hill, odds that have since disappeared. A parlay on the Twins and Brewers could get very interesting if both teams remain in their divisional races, the double factoring to a crazy $390.00.

Lastly, there's the matter of the Arizona Diamondbacks who are a second-placed team but one playing mightily well at .578 this season. Unibet leave them out at $10.00 for a treble of $3900.00. A trixie or patent involving these three teams would get very interesting if two of them ended up being legit over the long term.
