The (0-0) Minnesota Twins of the American League Central Division will travel from the “TWIN CITIES” to the “MOTOR CITY” for a three-game series. Minnesota will play the (0-0) Detroit Tigers also of the American League Central in 2015 MLB opening day action. The teams will play at Comerica Park in downtown Detroit, Michigan. This Sports Handicapper believes the Minnesota Twins are going to be the cellar dweller in the Central. The Detroit Tigers are still as potent as the have been in years. The opening betting line has Detroit as a -190 favorite Against The Spread; the betting odds total is 7′ for Monday’s game.
The 2015 Minnesota Twins roster doesn’t strike fear in the opposition opponents. The 2014 Twins finished last in the Central with a 70-92 record and 35-46 away from Minneapolis. Minnesota didn’t make a lot of noise in the offseason. The big acquisition is Torii Hunter coming back to the place he spent the first ten years of his career. Hunter played for Minnesota from 1997-2007. Minnesota will have Right Handed Phil Hughes (16-10) with a 3.52 ERA on Free MLB Betting Predictions last season. The Twins organization are hoping future Hall of Famer Joe Mauer can produce for a couple more season. Hunter is going to add some power to a struggling offense. Minnesota plays’ Detroit tough, they went 10-9 against The Tigers last season. The Twins are 3-9 their last twelve Baseball games on Monday’s. Minnesota is not the most talented teams in baseball; they must rely on the experience and hard work. St Paul, Minnesota native, and former Twins star Paul Molitor is the new skipper of the Twins. Sportsbooks in Las Vegas and offshore has the Minnesota Twins at +1,800 to win the 2015 MLB American League Central Division.
The 2015 Detroit Tigers are still the best team in the Division. The Tigers won the Central with a 90-72 record, one game in front of Kansas City. Detroit got swept by Baltimore in the ALDS, giving the team something to think about in the offseason. Left Hander David Price will take the hill over Justin Verlander in the opener. Verlander is out with a bicep injury and is on the disabled list. Price is 11-8 since coming over from Tampa Bay with a 3.11 ERA last season as a Tiger. The betting odds under the total are 5-2-1 Detroit last eight games at Comerica Park. Slugger Victor Martinez is questionable for Monday’s game with a sore knee. Yoenis Céspedes, Ian Kinsler, and Miguel Cabrera make up a “LETHAL” group of hitters. When Martinez returns, it will be even better. Bovada.Lv has the Detroit Tigers at +220 to win the 2015 American League Central.
