MLB Odds: AL East, Central Leaders Collide in Yankees-Twins

The New York Yankees are running away with the American League East. The Minnesota Twins lead the AL Central, but they’re starting to lose their grip. They’ll meet this Wednesday at Target Field; first pitch is at 8:10 PM ET on ESPN, with J.A. Happ (4.86 ERA) expected to start for New York opposite Jake Odorizzi (3.18 ERA).

Happ has struggled in his first full season with the Yankees after coming over from the Toronto Blue Jays ahead of last year’s trade deadline. However, New York bettors have still made a profit with Happ on the mound; the Yankees are 13-6 in his 19 starts thus far, with the UNDER at 10-8-1, and they’ve won nine of his last dozen trips to the mound.

The Twins have the same 13-6 team record behind Odorizzi (a first-time All-Star) this year, splitting the total at 9-9, but they’ve made a lot more profit during that span. Minnesota have surprised just about everyone with their level of success, after opening as +7500 long shots to win the 2019 World Series – well behind the Yankees at +800. But the Twins may be falling back to earth after losing five of their last seven games.
