Minnesota Twins Betting Preview

The Twins have not had much trouble in this series, especially after scoring 10 runs each game and only allowing the White Sox to score two runs per game in the first two games. This level of consistency will be needed for the playoffs.

Their batting averages and ratio at the plate are not bad. They put up .242, with a .426 slugging percentage. These are solid and they have actually been better in this series.

From the mound, the ratio does not show much of a separation, as they allow .238 at the plate from their opponents. They also put up a ln ERA at 3.90, which is much better than the White Sox.

Their ability to get on base is good at .322, which shows they have been able to get runners on board. However, their recent play has not had any issues with getting runners on.

Chicago White Sox Betting Preview

The White Sox were doomed to fail before the start of this series. You could tell they had some issues when they had two straight losses by the Kansas City Royals prior to beginning game one of this series.

The White Sox have typically hit .239 at the plate and have a slugging percentage at .387. While these are low compared to league standards, it should be enough to keep in reach with the Twins on paper.

They will not be close to the Twins at all if they continue to allow their opponents to bat .251. Their ERA of 4.94 is the driving force behind their issues.

Their OBP is well below the Twins’ at .293, no worries about them having many scoring opportunities. This could be another blowout.
