I’m playing on MINNESOTA. The Twins really struggled with Sale yesterday. No surprise there though, as he’s among the best in the game. They’ll be facing a far less intimidating pitcher this afternoon and I like their chances of bouncing back.
While Sale is nasty, Carroll is not. Last time out, he gave up five earned runs in just five innings. During that 5-inning stretch, he gave up 11 hits while walking two, a 2.60 WHIP. Through 10 starts, he’s 3-6 with an ugly 6.00 ERA and 1.741 WHIP.
By comparison, Pino has been relatively solid. He allowed four runs in 6 1/3 innings last time out, striking out five and walking none. In his previous two starts, he allowed one run in five innings and one run in six innings. In four home starts, despite being 0-2, he has a respectable 3.96 / 1.04 ERA/WHIP combo, averaging better than six innings per start here.
A little over a month ago, Pino limited these same Sox to two run over seven innings. He had seven K’s with just one walk. He didn’t get the “W” but the Twins won 4-2.
The Sox are 1-5 (-4.4) after three or more straight wins. The Twins are 8-6 (+3.3) off three or more consecutive losses. Going back further finds them at a profitable 18-15 (+11.3) the past couple of seasons, off a shutout loss. No sweep today. 10* personal favorite

Ben Burns burst onto the sports betting scene in the 1990s, first making his selections available to the public in 1998. Now entering his tenth year, Ben has become one of the most successful and well-respected handicappers on the entire Internet.
From 1998 to 2006, Ben had his selections documented by the Big Guy Sports Monitor. During that time, he accumulated numerous seasonal titles in all the major sports. In fact, competing against a field of 150, Ben's NFL selections still rank as #1 of all-time there. With such a commanding lead over the field, it is highly unlikely that his all-time NFL record there will ever be matched.
Like all handicappers, Ben goes through both hot and cold streaks. However, whether winning or losing, he always "tells it like it is." Perhaps more importantly, as his many fans are quick to point out, Ben's winning weeks tend to greatly outnumber his losing ones. Note that Ben followed up an extremely strong 2006 with an even better campaign in 2007!
Ben is known as a "Totals Expert" and his over/under plays are highly sought after in all sports. In addition to his "total" success, Ben's "sides" are also known for their sizzling hot streaks. While he advocates playing all his selections equally, Ben's knack for nailing his "Big" plays is truly remarkable.
Ben capped off a highly successful college football season by winning his Bowl Game of the Year, a 41-10 wire-to-wire destruction on Georgia over Hawaii. Ben's NFL playoffs didn't go as well though and he lost his first ever Super Bowl selection, when the Patriots were upset by the Giants. Despite that rare setback, Ben's Super Bowl record remains at 10-1 for his career. Additionally, his NFL playoff picks remain a powerful 47-22 (68%) ATS the past six years. Ben isn't just a football expert though, as his hockey, baseball AND basketball picks are also highly respected.
Ben logs extremely long hours. His hard work clearly shows itself in his high quality writeups and extraordinary long-term records. If you're looking for an honest, hard-working handicapper with a documented history of success, give Ben Burns a try. We're sure that you'll be impressed!
Ben Burns has been one of the top names in sports handicapping ever since making his picks public in 1998. Ben has built an impeccable reputation by being one of the most honest men in the business. He is widely considered an expert in every sport for over/under picks, but has also shown significant success in picking winners against the spread.
What clients love most about following Ben Burns is his in-depth analysis. Few, if any, handicappers match his consistent insight. This allows you to learn how to handicap your own games as you learn from one of the sharpest minds in the industry.
Ben is a self-proclaimed contraritan, meaning he often times finds those teams that the square betting public is backing and plays against them. This method has paid off in spades, particularly in the NFL. Keep in mind that this is no a conscious effort, but that his game analysis often points to the winning side of the game that few others are able to see.
Ben Burns has been monitored all over the place, including Big Guy Sports, where he is the All-Time leader in the NFL. He has collected numerous seasonal awards, but is most proud of turning a profit for his clients year-in and year-out.
Since joining our network, Ben has racked up seven top-10 finishes across the NFL, NBA, college football, and baseball. He has finished in the top 10 in college football four times and is one of our best five college handicappers of all-time. His talents also extend to the hardwood, where he has also recorded three top-10 finishes including a 2nd place overall finish in 2010.
