By virtue of winning the first two games of the series, Cleveland has caught Minnesota at the top of the AL Central. Those betting baseball will have to decide what they like for the series finale.
Who was actually in first place this Sunday we don’t know because of the contest on Saturday evening, but this we do know, Minnesota is having an appalling time at Target Field at 14-22, -10.2 units.
What will be the right choice for MLB picks, let’s go over the numbers.
Trevor Bauer (5-5, 5.85), just saying his name causes a difference of opinion among scouts. Some look at his 92-96 MPH fastball and love him, especially when he has his off-speed tosses working. With 81 strikeouts in just 67 2/3 innings, what is not to like. Then it was the other scouts see, a pitcher who does not miss enough bats on a consistent level (73 hits allowed) and will walk multiple batters in the same inning and almost always has high pitch counts for number of innings worked. Bauer is 3-5 vs. Minnesota with a 5.05 ERA.
