MLB Betting Odds – Weekend Preview (7/3-5)

In the American League Central, the first-place Detroit Tigers travel to take on the Minnesota Twins, who have played under the total in six straight and seven of their last eight games. The Twins (41-39, -0.75 units) have also cashed five of their last seven games against the moneyline. Bet this exciting three-game series at the Pinnacle Sportsbook review, the leading online MLB betting sportsbook, and the only place to wager on this week’s MLB action with 8 cent moneylines, 10 cent runlines and live betting every day.

The Tigers (43-35, +5.60 units) have taken four of the five contests between the clubs this season, including a three-game sweep at the Metrodome back in May. Detroit comes into the weekend set with three starting pitchers – Nate Robertson (elbow), Dontrelle Willis (personal), and Jeremy Bonderman (shoulder) – all on the 15-day disabled list.

Another team with serious injuries to its pitching staff is the Toronto Blue Jays, and that could spell trouble when they face the New York Yankees at Yankee Stadium this weekend. Four of the five opening day starters are on the disabled list for the Blue Jays (42-38, +0.95 units), who have dropped four of their last five contests.

The Yankees (45-32, -2.41 units) come into the four-game set having won seven straight games heading into their matchup on Thursday against the Seattle Mariners. New York backers continue to profit off an offense that ranks first in runs per game (5.55), team OPS (.825), and home runs (116).
