Indians Twins Betting Tips – Indians Look For Sweep As They Head To Twin Cities

Posted by Dale "Skip" Lalonde on 5/10/2012 3:16:05 PM

With all of the talk about how talented the Detroit Tigers would be, baseball fans in the Motor City may have forgotten that before you get the chance to challenge for a World Series title you must first clinch a playoff spot during the regular season. The Tigers have flirted around .500 throughout the five weeks of the season, leaving the door wide open for the Cleveland Indians to take the American League Central lead. The Indians have enough talent to challenge for a division title if they can maintain their focus and determination, with a mini two-game series up next against the Minnesota Twins to start the sports betting online week.

One of the biggest reasons why the sportsbook bookies are somewhat surprised that it is the Indians on top of the AL Central at this point in the season isn’t because of the Tigers’ struggles, it’s because of Cleveland’s numbers. The Indians are the only division leaders in baseball with a scoring differential in the minus, and the only division leader with a sub-.500 record at home. Cleveland has somehow managed to win nine of its first 12 games on the road however, and considering how awful the Twins have been at Target Field the chances are very good that the Indians can improve their mark as the visiting team. Minnesota won just four of its first 14 home games, and with their run differential the absolute worst in the majors the blame can be passed around. Minnesota will send Carl Pavano to the mound to open the series following his shortest start of the season. Pavano lasted only four innings, giving up 10 hits and four earned runs in a 6-2 loss to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. The Indians will counter with 24-year old Jeanmar Gomez, and while he is coming off his worst start of the season, he should be fine to bounce back against a struggling Minnesota team as the betting sites favorite.

It won’t get any prettier for the Twins with Jason Marquis on the mound for game No. 2, as he continues to walk too many batters and put himself in trouble early on. Marquis has managed to consistently get his ERA down from 7.20 all the way to 5.40 over his past four starts, but that will still be far too many runs to give up with Derek Lowe on the mound for Cleveland. Lowe is 4-1 with a 2.39 ERA this season, and if the Indians can get him some early offense there is no reason to think that he can’t go at least seven innings and add to his win total for the online sportsbook season. Lowe has not given up more than two earned runs in any of his last three starts, so three will be the golden number for the Cleveland offense.
