Red Sox vs. Twins Odds: MLB Predictions for August 8th 2011
The Red Sox are going to come into this game extremely confident after pulling out a win against the Yankees in extra innings. The Twins on the other hand, have lost four straight and seven of their last eight overall. The Red Sox will also be fired up to try and get Tim Wakefield his 200th career win, after he has failed to get it in each of his last two starts.
Wakefield still pitched well in each of his last two starts, allowing no more than three runs and five hits. Wakefield will be going up against Scott Baker of the Twins, who is 8-6 with a 3.01 ERA. While Baker has been great, shutting down the Red Sox offense is no easy task. I look Boston to score just enough to get the win tonight.
The Red Sox are 20-6 in their last 26 after allowing 2 runs or less in their previous game, 11-1 in their last 12 games as a road favorite of -110 to -150, and 4-1 in Wakefield’s last 5 starts vs. a team with a losing record.BET THE RED SOX!
