I'm much better with numbers than I am with words (except of course when it comes to profanity where I do consider myself a bit of an artist) so each Sunday as long as there is baseball you will get a Vegas betting angle on the Twins.
I lived in Vegas for 5 years before a too good to pass up tech company start up offer brought the family to Utah - but 3 months ago that company was bought by a 100% remote company (remote even before COVID) so we are actively looking to move - but while in Vegas I did spreadsheets and data analysis for a number of professional bettors and absolutely fell in love with the art that is sports betting.
Berrios vs Singer
The Twins #1 starter vs Royals #5 starter - time for the Twins best pitcher to get things back on track.
- Twins -161 means you would get paid $100 for every $161 you bet on the Twins to win today
- Royals +148 means you would get paid $148 for every $100 you bet on the Royals to win today
- Total = 9 (add the score of both teams - is it OVER 9 or UNDER 9)
My money today is on the Twins to win and cover the -1.5 run line. I'm going to stay away from betting on the total.
Twins have seen 6 games go over the Vegas total and 9 go under the total so far this season. They went 82 over 76 under and 7 ties against the total last year.
Vegas odds before the season started:
- 34.5 Wins (Tied for 3rd best with Astros behind Dodgers and Yankees)
- +800 (meaning 8 to 1 - bet $100 get $900 back - winning $800) to win the Pennant (4th behind Yankees, Astros, and Rays)
- +1800 to win the World Series (Yankees, Dodgers, Astros, Rays, Braves, Athletics with better odds at the time)
Vegas odds as of today:
- 40 game win pace - 3 game losing streak not withstanding
- +550 to win AL Pennant (2nd behind Yankees)
- +1000 to win World Series (3rd behind Yankees and Dodgers)
Vegas sees the Twins as the team to beat in a weak Central division but a long shot to beat the Yankees in the postseason. Tell me if you heard that one before.........
