Minnesota Twins vs San Francisco Giants Free Moneyline Prediction
The Minnesota Twins are at the backend of a 10 game road trip and they finish with a weekend series in San Francisco. The Twins and Giants last met in 2014 when the Giants swept the 3 game series and the Giants took two of three in 2011.
Minnesota has been a pleasant surprise this season, leading the AL Central with a (30–26) record. Tonight’s starting pitcher has contributed to the Twins success. Ervin Santana (7–3, 2.44 ERA) takes the mound and hopes to rebound from his last outing when he gave up 7 ER’s in a losing effort vs the Angels. The Twins have won four of their last five road starts with Santana on the mound.
If you want offense, Miguel Sano will bring it. Sano has been a stud this season and anchors this Twins offense. Entering this game, Sano is batting .307, 15 HR’s and 46 RBI’s and leads the Twins in all categories.
San Francisco Giants will return back to AT&T Park after playing seven on the road. The Giants are in the 4th place spot in the NL West with a 25–37 record. The Giants are 3–7 over their last ten games and beat the Brewers in extra innings on Wednesday. The Giants are 13–14 at home.
Matt Moore will climb the mound for the Giants. Moore is (2–6) with a 5.22 ERA, 55 strikeouts, and 26 walks. The Giants have won just two of their last ten games when Moore is on the bump.
Buster Posey is back to his MVP form, batting .348, 8 HR’s and 18 RBI’s while captaining the defense from behind the dish. Posey is second in MLB with a .348 average.
This pitching matchup favors the Twins with Santana on the mound. The Twins are (18–8) on the road while the Giants are (13–14) at AT&T Park. I think there is good value on the Twins tonight with Santana on the mound.
