New, comments

And in the series. Maybe this is your chance to make some money

MLB: New York Yankees-Workout Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

If you believe the Twins can beat the Yankees, and you happen to be near somewhere with legalized betting, you could win some good money. As for the rest of us, this is purely informational.

The Twins are currently a slight underdog for tonight’s game, at +125. In layman's’ terms, this means that you would win $125 for every hundred you bet. The Yankees, on the other hand, are currently sitting at -105 odds, or in other words, if you bet $105 and the Yankees won, you would win $100.

The bookies also expect this to be a high scoring game, with the points over-under at 8.5. The O/U for the Twins is 3.5 runs, and the Yankees is 4.5—in both cases I’m personally going to take the over. While they expect the Yankees to score more runs, the oddsmakers expect the Twins will score first.

For the series, the Twins odds are even more grim. Our bookmakers have a Twins series victory at +195, and the Yankees at -225. If you dive into the prop bets a bit deeper, the money says that the Yankees win the series in four games. If you want to go big, bet on a Twins sweep—its “Twins win in 3” is currently paying out +1000.

Lets hope the Twins can defy the odds, and if you put any money down, good luck!
