The Minnesota Twins look to even the ALDS series at ones in game two in New York Friday October 9th. The New York Yankees took game one easily by a score of 7-2, with their ace CC Sabathia on the mound. Game 2 of the Yankees/Twins series is set to start at 6:07 PM EST. Although the Twins out hit the Yankees with ten hits, they couldn’t get the clutch hits to score runs. The Yankees got two 2-run home runs, one from Jeter and one from Matsui. Minnesota sends righty Nick Blackburn to the mound Friday against the Yankees. Blackburn finished the season with a 11-11 record and a 4.03 ERA. AJ Burnett will be pitching for the Yankees in game two. Burnett held a 13-9 record in the regular season, with a similar 4.04 ERA.

Twins vs Yankees Betting Predictions:
Final Score Prediction – Twins 5 Yankees 4
Money Line – I am going with the big underdogs in tonight’s game 2. Bet on TWINS on the money line at +270. A $100 bet on the Twins would pay out a nice $370 total. AJ Burnett has been average this year, and didn’t put up the numbers he was expected to. When Burnett is hot he is hot, but when he is cold he is cold. I think the Twins should be able to score some runs on Burnett. Bet on the TWINS.
Over/Under – The over/under line on this Twins vs Yankees game 2 is pretty high at 10 total runs. I will take the UNDER 10 total runs at -110. Almost all betting trends point in the direction of this game going under – even more so that the line is set at 10 runs. Lay it down on the Under 10 total runs for game 2 in the Twins/Yankees ALDS.
