The Daily Gambling Fix — 8/6/12 — Shawn Michelle Dillon
The Game: Minnesota Twins @ Cleveland Indians
The Reason: The Minnesota Twins enter tonight’s game having won seven of their last 10, while the Indians have lost their last nine in a row. You might think that Cleveland would be due for a win, but we beg to differ. The Twins have won each of the last five meetings between these two teams, and they send lefty Scott Diamond to the mound tonight. He is 9-5 on the season with a 2.94 ERA and he has won his last two starts against the Indians. Cleveland has struggled mightily against lefties this season, as they are 10-23 in 33 games against southpaws. Look for the Indians’ losing streak to continue, as the Twins emerge victorious tonight.
The Game: Texas Rangers @ Boston Red Sox
The Reason: Two of the league’s top offenses square off at Fenway Park tonight when the Boston Red Sox host the Texas Rangers. The Rangers lead the league with an average of 5.12 runs per game, while the Sox rank third in the American League with an average of 4.86 runs per game. The Rangers send Yu Darvish to the mound, and each of his last three starts have gone over the total. As for Sox starter Aaron Cook, he has a 5.24 ERA this season and has watched his last two starts go over the total. Look for both offenses to put up some big numbers as tonight’s game goes over the total.
2012 Record: (131-133-11), Last Week: (2-6)
