Twins vs. Brewers Betting (July 26): Milwaukee has Edge in Close Matchup

By | July 26, 2022

The 2022 MLB season continues on Tuesday, July 26 with a slate of 15 exciting games. One contest that fans will want to watch is a showdown between two division leaders as the Minnesota Twins (52-44) begin a quick two-game series against the Milwaukee Brewers (53-44).

The Twins have been up-and-down in July, however, they’re on pace to close the month on a hot note. The club has won three of its last four games and, while that isn’t mind-blowing, all successful runs have to start somewhere.

The Brewers were riding a three-game winning streak before the Colorado Rockies beat them, 2-0, on Monday night. Milwaukee had gone 3-8 in 11 games prior to their streak, so it’ll be interesting to see if they get back on that momentum wave or get stuck in another rut.

The Twins are sending veteran starting pitcher Dylan Bundy to kickstart the game while the Brewers are countering him with southpaw Ethan Small.

Here’s a look at FanDuel Sportsbook’s odds, along with the best bets to make, ahead of today’s Twins vs. Brewers matchup.

Twins, Brewers Set for Even Matchup

It’s hard to find a more event matchup today than this Twins vs. Brewers showdown. As mentioned before, Minnesota leads the AL Central while Milwaukee sits atop the NL Central. Only one victory separates both teams from having identical records as well.

On top of that, FanDuel Sportsbook is listing the Brewers as -116 favorites on the moneyline while the Twins sit at -102. Only a few other games today have odds that are that close on the ML, indicating that it’ll likely be a tight affair.

This also isn’t the first time that the two clubs have met this season. It was only two weeks ago that the two sides engaged in a two-game series at Target Field, resulting in the Brewers and Twins each winning a game. In fact, the final run total for the mini series was 7-7.

Their last meeting ended in a 4-1 walk-off victory for the Twins after Jose Mirando hit a three-run homer in the bottom of the ninth inning.

The Twins are hoping that they can get another solid performance from Bundy on the mound. While the 29-year-old has won his last two starts, he’s given up seven runs on 11 hits in 10.1 innings, resulting in a 6.10 ERA over that stretch.

Meanwhile, Small is set to make his second start of the season after the Brewers recalled him from Triple-A on Monday. The rookie made his MLB debut on May 30 against the Chicago Cubs, giving up four hits, two runs and four walks before being pulled after just 2.2 innings. He’s played slightly better with Triple-A Nashville, going 6-4 in 15 starts with a 4.09 ERA and 1.239 WHIP.

In other news, the Twins will have Miguel Sano back from the 60-day injured list after he was sidelined at the end of April with a torn meniscus. The former All-Star first baseman was struggling before his injury, recording one HR and three RBIs while slashing .093/.231/.148 in 17 games.

Betting Trends for Twins vs. Brewers

  • Minnesota is 5-2 straight up in its last seven games against Milwaukee.
  • Milwaukee is 5-1 straight up in its last six games against AL opponents.
  • The total has hit the over in each of Minnesota’s last seven road games.
  • The total has hit the over in six of Milwaukee’s last eight home games against Minnesota.

Twins vs. Brewers Prediction and Best Bets

Twins vs. Brewers Prediction: Brewers to win

Twins vs. Brewers Best Bets: Brewers ML (-116 at FanDuel) & Over 9.5 (-110 at FanDuel)

For tonight’s Twins vs. Brewers matchup, I’m picking Milwaukee to pick up the win outright. Bundy hasn’t played all that well against stronger teams this season and I think that the Brewers will take advantage of that matchup.

When it comes to Milwaukee winning, the best bet is to take the Brewers at -116 on the moneyline. I also recommend taking the total to hit over 9.5 runs because of the fact that Bundy has allowed a lot of runs lately while Small didn’t look that great in his last MLB appearance.
