MLB Odds: Twins Chasing Wild-Card Berth in Cleveland
With one week remaining in the 2015 regular season, most of the playoff spots have already been decided, but the American League Wild Cards are still up for grabs. The Minnesota Twins (81-75, +21.88 betting units) are one of three teams vying for the second and last playoff berth on the junior circuit. They’ll be in Cleveland Wednesday afternoon for a double-header (4:10 PM ET) for the third of a four-game series at The Jake.

The Tribe (77-78, –14.50 units) are still in Wild-Card contention, but their chances are very slim after losing 4-2 to Minnesota (+152) on Monday and getting washed out Tuesday. They are five games back of the Angels for the last wild-card spot. Right-hander Carlos Carrasco (14-11, 3.44 ERA ) is 0n the mound for Cleveland against Kyle Gibson (10-11, 3.96 ERA), who’s been very inconsistent this year. The Twins are 16-16 behind Gibson for just 1.18 units in earnings, with the under at 17-11-4. The Indians are 17-12 behind Carrasco this season and are up a little over 5 units.
Minnesota is also said to be fighting a flu bug that caused Phil Hughes to miss his scheduled start on Monday. Tommy Milone made an emergency start for the Twins, so Gibson will be taking his usual turn on Wednesday.
