Kodai Senga (10-7, 3.08 ERA) vs. Dallas Keuchel (1-1, 5.06 ERA)


Kodai Senga will take the mound for the New York Mets on Wednesday and boasts impressive season statistics: a 10-7 win-loss record with an ERA of 3.08; his 1.23 WHIP rate also speaks volumes of his control and ability to keep runners off base. Senga has allowed only 110 hits over 143.1 innings pitched, demonstrating his ability to produce compelling pitches at critical moments. Furthermore, his strikeout count stands at an impressive 176 and speaks for itself; this suggests his success at getting out of tight situations by retiring the batter quickly. His propensity for control has also been noted, with only 66 walks so far, while 13 homer runs indicate that Senga is keeping the ball within the park effectively.


Contrarily, the Twins will send Dallas Keuchel out on the mound for this matchup – an ineffective pitcher whose stats do not engender as much confidence. He currently stands with just a 1-1 record and a 5.06 ERA; additionally, his high WHIP of 1.5 serves as another indicator that indicates struggles keeping runners off base. Keuchel has only pitched 21.1 innings this season compared to Senga’s 60.2. Of this small sample size, 25 hits have been allowed during that time, and 8 strikeouts have been managed. His low strikeout number suggests he may lack an effective ‘put-away’ pitch like Senga. With 7 walks and 2 homer runs allowed during his brief outing this season, Keuchel’s limited time on the mound has not proven particularly fruitful.

The Minnesota Twins showcase a mixed bag of trends. The total has gone OVER in 4 of their last 5 games but UNDER in 10 of their last 14 games against the Mets. They are 4-2 SU in their last 6 games, which indicates current form. However, they have a troubling 0-5 SU in their last 5 games when playing at home against the Mets.


New York Mets vs. Minnesota Twins 9/8/23 Betting Picks

Taking into account team statistics, betting trends, and the starting pitchers, the Mets appear to have a slight edge in this matchup. Kodai Senga’s better form this season compared to Dallas Keuchel’s could be the deciding factor in a game that already leans toward the Mets, especially considering their historical dominance over the Twins. The Mets’ recent trends of going UNDER in total and their strong road record against the Twins also favor them. While the Twins have had a slightly better overall season, their track record against the Mets, especially at home, is not promising. Given these factors, we recommend betting on the Mets on the moneyline and considering a bet on the UNDER for the total.
