The red hot Minnesota Twins travel to Yankees Stadium to take on the New York Yankees. This first game in the best-of-five AL Division Series is scheduled to start tonight at 6:07 p.m. ET. The Yankees hand the ball to 19-game winner CC Sabathia to take on 5-game winner rookie Brian Duensing in the battle of the lefties. After an unbelievable back and forth battle last night to beat the Tigers and win the AL central, The Minnesota Twins head to the Bronx where they are 0-7 this year. Duensing, who finished the year 5-1 with a 2.73 ERA in nine starts, has only faced the Yankees once where he went 2 and 2/3 innings and gave up four runs, two hits, and four walks. The rookie will need a much better appearance than that if The Twins plan on taking game 1.

Runline / Moneyline – Lay it down on The Yankees tonight on both the runline and moneyline. The Twins are coming off of an emotional 12 inning game late last night in Minnesota, and have a short rest before they play the Yankees today at 6:00pm ET. Twins manager Ron Gardenhire has only won 3 of 25 games in the Bronx during the regular season. The Yankees on the other hand have had a four day rest, and have CC Sabathia on the mound who is 9-4 with a 1.91 ERA in his last 13 starts against the Twins. Look for Sabathia, who has struggled in the past in the postseason put all that behind him and carry the Yankees to 1-0 series lead, and win the first ever playoff game in the new Yankees Stadium. Bet on Yankees tonight on both the moneyline and the runline.
Over/Under – I like the run total to stay under 9.5 for tonight’s game. Look for Sabathia to go deep into tonight’s match up, and control this game, keeping the Twins to limited runs. Under is 27-11-4 in the last 42 meetings between these teams in New York, and under 5-1-1 in Sabathias last 7 home starts. Bet on the under 9.5 total runs in tonight’s game.
