Betting Odds: Yankees ML (+100) - Over/Under (8.5)

Pick: Yankees ML (+100)

The New York Yankees and the Minnesota Twins will play the final game of their current series here on Thursday afternoon in Minneapolis. This should be a solid game between two potential playoff teams and American League division winners. These two teams have met several times in the last few years and each and every time they get together for a series it tends to lead to some close and competitive matchups throughout the week. It has been all New York Yankees throughout the first two games of this three game series as the Yankees have outscored Minnesota nine to one and they will look for a third consecutive victory here on Thursday afternoon to complete the three game sweep.

Clarke Schmidt gets the baseball for the New York Yankees in the finale of this three game series against the Minnesota Twins. He will look to continue the Yankee run of dominance throughout the previous two games, as he looks to further expand on his solid start to the season as well. He comes into this game on Thursday afternoon with four victories on his record and only a single loss and he will be looking to pick up his fifth victory of the year as he looks to keep New York at the top of the American League East division heading into the back half of May. 

Much like everybody expected the New York Yankees are off to a fast start this season and they are searching for their 30th win of the year in their first 45 games with another victory over the Minnesota Twins here on Thursday afternoon. New York comes into this one on fire winning eight out of their last 10 and they hold a half of a game lead over the Baltimore Orioles for the top spot in the best division in baseball. They will look to further extend their grasp on the division with a fourth consecutive victory, and another multi run win against the Minnesota Twins here in this one.

At this point of the series, the Minnesota Twins will be looking to salvage at least one victory and avoid the dreaded three game sweep at the hands of the New York Yankees. Minnesota has been playing solid baseball throughout the first month and a half of the season and they will look to maintain that momentum with a much-needed victory here on Thursday afternoon at home. Luckily the Minnesota Twins will have their best on the mound as Joe Ryan gets the baseball looking for his third victory of the season and he will look to lower his ERA against a New York Yankees lineup that has been bashing the baseball all over the field throughout the series. 

He is certainly a strikeout pitcher and that is something this Yankees team can do a lot if they are not hitting home runs, as the middle of the lineup is either homer or strikeout from the likes of Stanton and Aaron Judge. Will certainly need to rack up the strikeout if the Minnesota Twins want to be successful in this game on Thursday afternoon and pick up a much-needed victory to open up the second half of May and close out this series with the Yankees. This is a much-needed win for the Minnesota Twins as they look to capitalize on the Cleveland guardians being off here on Thursday afternoon, and they look to gain a game in the American League Central division after Cleveland dropped a game on Wednesday against the Texas Rangers.

Betting trends to consider in this matchup:

- New York is 16-9 on the road 

- New York is 6-4 as a road underdog 

- New York is 2-0 against Minnesota 

I expect this to be a close and competitive matchup with two premier starting pitchers getting the baseball for this game on Thursday afternoon. However, in the end I look for a similar result as we have seen throughout the first two games of this series as I look for the New York Yankees to grab a third consecutive win against the Minnesota Twins and complete the three game sweep. Even as the technical betting underdogs in this game, I think the New York Yankees will pull out another victory against Minnesota on the road.
