MLB Odds: Red Sox-Twins at the Tar-Zhay

The Boston Red Sox (49-24, plus-12.95 betting units) have been one of the best teams in Major League Baseball this year – and one of the most profitable. They can add to their record this Thursday when they visit the Minnesota Twins (31-37, minus-7.85 units) in the finale of a three-game set at Target Field, beginning at 1:10 PM ET on NESN and the MLB Network.

Rick Porcello (3.70 ERA) is projected to pitch for Boston opposite Kyle Gibson (3.27 ERA) in a battle of veteran northpaws. Porcello has led the Red Sox to 1.79 units in earnings on a team record 9-6, with the Over at 8-5-1; Gibson is down 0.27 units on a record of 7-7, with the Under at 8-6.
While the two pitchers in question have performed at roughly the same level, Porcello has received 5.67 runs per game in support from one of the best batting orders in baseball. The light-hitting Twins have provided Gibson just four runs per game. Eight of his 14 trips to the mound have resulted in a “no decision” for Gibson, who allowed just eight earned runs combined over his last five starts – Minnesota lost three of those games.
