Total: 8.50 | -101.00 Under
Meetings between the Minnesota Twins and the New York Mets have generally been low-scoring affairs, but this total looks way too low considering the pitching matchup.
The Twins' Jose Berrios (2-6, 9.27 ERA) has been lit up in virtually all of his 11 starts in the big leagues and the over is 8-1-2 in those games. He lasted only 2 2/3 innings of a 7-1 loss to Cleveland his last time out but was charged with five runs (three earned) on three hits and four walks.
The Mets turn to Bartolo Colon (13-7, 3.27 ERA) is not a pitcher to be trusted. He allowed three runs on four hits with a pair of homers in six innings at Atlanta his last start. Colon has not faced Minnesota since 2013, but Kurt Suzuki is 5-for-13 in the matchup and Joe Mauer 3-for-4.
The Mets did not play on Thursday, the over is 3-1-1 in their last five games following an off day and 8-3 in their last 11 interleague home games. Over is 18-5-3 in Twins' last 26 interleague games.
