Minnesota Twins (-119) at Cleveland Guardians
Analysis: Since March 27, 2021, teams in game one of a series coming off a three-game sweep (and the last game went over the total) are a money-burning 8-25 straight-up (1-5 L/6). Road favorites with starting pitchers who lost their previous personal matchup against the home team are a profitable 47-14 straight-up if their team won the previous matchup versus the opponent, including 28-9 straight-up in divisional play.
Finally, Cleveland right-hander Triston McKenzie is 1-4 with a 6.39 ERA and 1.09 WHIP in six career starts against the Twins. In contrast, Minnesota starter Sonny Gray is 5-4 with a 3.67 ERA and 1.29 WHIP in fourteen career outings against the Guardians. Take Minnesota and invest with confidence.
Boston Red Sox at Toronto Blue Jays (-176)
Analysis: Since March 27, 2019, divisional favorites of -131 or greater versus opponents coming off a game with ten or more hits and no home runs are 103-36 straight-up in games with a total of six or more runs. This situation is a profitable 30-7 straight-up if the team lost their previous game by more than two runs. Since July 7, 2019, the Blue Jays are 12-6 (+7.9% ROI) straight-up and +13.3% ROI against the run line as favorites following a loss by five or more runs.
Since September 1, 2021, the Blue Jays are 12-4 (+28.1% ROI) straight-up and 9-7 (+11.0% ROI) against the run line in games 1 and 2 of a series following a game in which they allowed eight runs or more. Since June 18, 2017, the Blue Jays are 22-10 (+41.7% ROI) straight-up and 18-14 (+14.8% ROI) against the run line at home following a game in which they gave up ten or more runs. Take Toronto and invest with confidence.
Baltimore Orioles at Seattle Mariners (-149)
Analysis: Seattle falls into a profitable 68-24 system that invests on certain American League home favorites of -125 to -175 that allow 4.4 or fewer runs per game versus starting pitchers who gave up no earned runs in their previous outing. This situation is 45-18 (+18.9 units) over the last three seasons.
Baltimore falls into very negative 19-90 (-51.7% ROI) and 15-68 (-50.0% ROI) statistical profile indicators that date back to April 14, 2018, and invest against the Orioles when playing without rest versus opposing starting pitchers with a certain strikeout-to-walk ratio. The above indicators have all produced a substantial profit against the run line. The 15-68 situation is 6-21 (-44.7% ROI) since July 21, 2021.
Seattle right-hander George Kirby toes the rubber with a 3.12 ERA and 3.35 SIERA in nine starts this season (49.0 IP). In his last five starts, Kirby has posted a 2.17 ERA and 1.03 WHIP in 29 innings with 27 strikeouts. Take Seattle and invest with confidence.
