MLB Free Pick | Twins at Phillies
Let’s talk some baseball. It has been an interesting season so far. The pitching has been at a premium, and the bats have kind of been quiet so far. But I expect that to change. A lot of the time, early on in the season, there are not a lot of hits because of the weather. The ball does not fly when it is extremely cold outside. People are lying to themselves if they don’t think the weather affects the hitting.

Sidenote, the weather also affects the attendance. That is why we have seen lackluster crowds in baseball so far this season early on. But for the game itself, I like the over in Minnesota versus Philadelphia tonight.
The total is eight runs. I think we can exceed that. Here’s why. I have watched a lot of Twins baseball over my entire life. I watch a lot of AL Central baseball. I think the Twins have been red hot so far this season and it will continue. Their offense has been good, and I think they can put up five or six runs against Philly.
Meanwhile, the Phillies are a team who have done things the right way. They are a solid baseball team top to bottom. I expect this game to go over tonight. We need to get to nine runs. I think we will and each team will put up a very solid offense of performance.
The main statistic I like to look at is Philadelphia and their record after days off. They play very well after they have a day off. In fact, the over has hit the last four times they have played a game after an off day.
I expect the over to hit again tonight. I hope you win, and cash a lot of tickets this betting baseball weekend. Have fun watching The final four as well. Good luck and Simon says take the over eight runs on Philadelphia against Minnesota tonight.
