BET: ๐Ÿ”ฅ Total runs OVER 7.5 with DraftKings Sportsbook (-115)

๐Ÿ“ˆ 57.7% probability

While the Twins have tightened things up in recent days since playing in a game with Detroit that yielded 21 runs, the Mariners have been leaky on defense in their opening six games of the year, conceding an average of 5.5 runs per game. A similar effort today and this one will be cashing early.

Toronto have been playing predominantly in low scoring games so far to open the year, but our data projections thinks that's all about to change as they open up their series against the Angels. LA have played in a number of free flowing games over the past week and have have shown that they can pile on the runs quickly.
