Point Spread: -1.50 | -110.00 NY Yankees (Home)
Result: Loss
This is a 6* on NEW YORK

There’s no time for the Yankees to stew over Sunday night’s 7-6 loss to the Mets. That’s because it’s right back to work this afternoon in a make-up game vs. the Twins. The Yankees are just 3-12 in their last 15 games and have watched as Toronto has passed them in the Wild Card race. But it wasn’t too long ago that New York was riding high on a 13-game win streak. That win streak included three wins against the Twins. It could have been four, but the finale of that series was rained out. That’s what we are making up today and we think the Yankees will “complete the sweep” 22 days later. Minnesota lost two of three over the weekend in Kansas City. They are in last place and have been one of the five worst teams to bet on in 2021. Their record vs. the Yankees is pretty poor. Not only did they lose three times here last month, but they are 11-43 in their last 54 games at Yankees Stadium. They are 3-12 in their last 15 games against the Yankees overall. The Yankees need a win very badly today and should feel confident handing the ball to Luis Gil, who has a 1.42 ERA in his first four starts. For Minnesota, John Gant gave up four runs in 3.3 innings the last time he faced the Yankees. He’s off his best start since joining the Twins, but actually needed 96 pitches to get through five innings. That was his most pitches thrown in any of his four starts with his new team. Home team wins this one. Play on NEW YORK
