Two teams in a rut meet up at 8:10 PM ET on Monday in August 10th Twins at Brewers betting. Minnesota needs a refresh after being swept in Kansas City over the weekend and losing to Pittsburgh before that to put their free fall at four games.
Milwaukee at least won on Sunday, but it was their first victory at Miller Park this season. This looks to be a game dominated by pitching with the O/U set at 8.5, but it’s two overall solid offenses taking the field. The Brewers are a -114 favorite with Minnesota at +105.
What’s Wrong With the Twins?
There’s no reason to panic…yet, for Minnesota as they still hold a half game lead over Detroit and Cleveland in the Central. There are some concerns with the weekend sweep by Kansas City though as the Twins fell as -133, -147, and -152 favorites. That followed a 6-5 loss in the series finale in Pittsburgh with Minnesota a -199 favorite.
What the Twins have shown over the last week is that they can lose any game on the road and are now 3-5 going away on the season. Is the Twins offense just misfiring right now though? They are still 6th in runs scored and 4th in home runs. These two teams split a couple two-game series’ in 2019 with each game having at least 8 runs total.
The O/U is just 8.5 for August 10th Twins at Brewers betting. Part of that is because Minnesota starter Randy Dobnak is on a roll with just a 0.60 ERA in three starts this season. Dobnak has only allowed 9 hits in 15 IP and has surrendered just 1 ER over that span.
Milwaukee About to Get Hot?
The Brewers dropped two of three to the Reds over the weekend while giving up 15 runs in three games. There are some positives to take out of that series tough, the first that Sunday’s win was the first of the year at Miller Park for the Brewers.
On top of that, there are signs that former MVP Christian Yelich could be about to break out of his early season slump. Yelich went 2-3 Sunday with a triple, his 3rd home run of the year, and 3 RBI while also drawing two walks. Is that a small sample size or the start of something for the underachieving Brewers who are 4 GB from the Cubs at 6-7?
Adrian Houser gets the nod for Milwaukee in August 10th Twins at Brewers betting. He too has had a solid start to the season in allowing just 1 ER in two starts. Ehire Adrianza of Minnesota is the only player in this game with an AB against the opposing starting pitcher so there’s a lot of unfamiliarity as well.
August 10th Twins at Brewers Betting Pick
It’s looking like a pitcher’s duel with two hot hurlers going for each team. These offenses are hard to go against though. If Yelich is starting to warm up, that only boasts the chances of a higher scoring game.
Pick: Over 8.5
