The vegas betting odds for today’s Boston Red Sox @ Minnesota Twins game at 1:10 PM EST at the brand new Target Field in Minneapolis, MN are now posted on and vegas linemakers have made the Boston Red Sox a -130 moneyline favorite with the total set at over/under 8.5 runs. After playing in the outdated Metrodome for almost three decades, Minnesota (6-2) opened its new open-air stadium in style with a 5-2 win Monday over Boston. “I’ve been waiting a long time,” St. Paul native and reigning AL MVP Joe Mauer said. “It’s definitely a special place, and I’m glad it’s here.” Carl Pavano picked up the first win at the new digs, while Jason Kubel tagged the first home run. Minnesota has been a place of horror for Boston (3-4), who with another loss today will have clinched its eighth series defeat in its last 10 series in Minnesota, where the Red Sox are a dismal 9-20 in their last 29 games. Boston will send John Lackey (0-0, 0.00 ERA) to the hill this afternoon where theyr hope he can continue his strong pitching against Minnesota. Including the postseason, the former Angels ace is 7-5 with a 3.50 ERA in his career against Minnesota, although Mauer has owned him going 9 for 20 (.450) with two home runs against him. In his first start at Fenway Park after inking a five-year, $82.5 million contract, the 31-year-old right-hander allowed only three hits in six strong shutout innings against the New York Yankees last Wednesday, but Boston’s bullpen couldn’t protect a one run lead and ended up losing a 3-1, 10-inning affair. Minnesota will send Kevin Slowey to the mound today, who picked up a win in his first start Thursday by allowing just one run on seven hits in 5 1-3 innings of a 10-1 victory over the Los Angeles Angels.’s expert handicapper Gerry “BIG CAT” Andino likes Boston to win as -130 favorites on the moneyline this afternoon behind a strong outing from John Lackey.
