The Yankees have lost five of their last six games, but tonight they have an opportunity to win two games! Why? Because the first game between the Yankees and Twins was suspended due to rain and they will start that game over starting in the sixth inning and complete that game before continuing with game three of their series. That should make for interesting MLB Betting and what about the MLB odds on that first game?
When they start the 2nd game tonight the starting pitchers will be Andy Pettitte for the Yankees who is 5-1 with an ERA of 2.68 with 32 Ks and 18 BBs and for the Twins they will start Francisco Liriano who is 4-3 with an ERA of 3.25 with 52 Ks and 17 BBs. For Liriano he had four straight victories during the period of 4/15 to 5/2 but since he has had a turn of luck and tonight will try to avoid the 4th straight loss. For Pettitte he has had a good start this season and at last had his first loss last Friday against the Rays.
It appears that the weather and temperature will be very favorable for these two games tonight in Minnesota while the weatherman forecasts clear skies and 75degree temperatures with winds being NNE at 5 to 10 miles per hour. This series will continue on Thursday in New York.
The Twins record is 14-7 this 2010 season at home while the Yankees are at almost even 13-12 while playing away and on the road. With that said, it appears that the Twins and the Yankees have an equal chance of winning this matchup. Will this have a positive effect on the MLB Betting lines or MLB odds for this series game?
