In the 2024 AL East Division, the Yankees, with a winning percentage of .650, lead the table, showing robust form with a 28-15 record. They’ve split their 16 divisional games and have triumphed in 8 of their recent 10 outings, currently enjoying a two-game winning streak. Their road performances have been particularly strong, boasting 15 wins out of 24.

Conversely, the Twins, positioned 5th in the AL Central Division, sport a .585 winning percentage with a 24-17 overall record. They’ve been reasonable in their divisional matchups with 12 wins out of 19 games, but their recent form dips slightly with 6 wins in their last 10 games and a recent loss breaking their stride. Their home and away records are almost even, reflecting their need to improve consistency.

When discussing the odds of this game, the point spread is set at 1.5 and the over-under is pitched at 8.0. Bettors looking at the money line should note the competitive figures with the Yankees at -101 and the Twins slightly favored at home at -117. Such figures indicate a closely contested game, possibly leaning towards a low-scoring affair given the over-under and the solid pitching stats from both starters.
