Minnesota Twins 2022 Season
The days of Joe Mauer have come and gone in Minnesota, but Minnesotas futures looks good right now. The Twins were third in the AL Central last season but they signed some good international prospects in Yasser Mercedes, Yilber Herrera, and Bryan Acuña as well as Carlos Correa.
Anything less than a division title in 2023 will be a disappointment for the Minnesota Twins. The team has an improved rotation and a potent lineup, which, combined with a relatively weak AL Central, bodes well for them.

Twins Spread (Run Line)
When betting on baseball, you’ll be faced with three standard options: the moneyline, over/under and run line.
The run line is a bet on the margin of victory, like a point spread. But because baseball is low scoring, the spread will almost always be -1.5 for the favorite and +1.5 for the underdog. The payouts for each will just be adjusted based on each team’s strength.
Here’s a brief example of a run line for a hypothetical Twins game:
- Pittsburgh Pirates (+1.5)
- Minnesota Twins (-1.5)
As shown above, the Twins are favored by 1.5 runs against the Pirates; the minus sign (-) indicates Minnesota is the favorite, while a plus sign (+) is used to denote the underdog. Bettors who wanted to back Minnesota here would be “laying” those 1.5 runs, meaning for their bets to cash the Twins would need to win by two runs or more. Bettors who selected the Pirates +1.5 would win if Pittsburgh won outright or kept a loss to 1 run.
The Twins were 74-88 on run lines in 2022, covering 45.7 percent of the time – which is an improvment from two years ago but still not great.
Many first time bettors are wary of run line bets, especially when riding with the hometown team. In that case, moneyline wagers are often seen as the safer way to go. A moneyline bet is a bet on who wins the game -- no run line involved.
Let’s use the same example from before to understand the moneyline better:
- Pittsburgh Pirates +150
- Minnesota Twins -180
Just as with run lines, the minus sign (-) signifies a team is favored, while the plus sign (+) means a team is the underdog. The moneyline odds, written in American odds format here, indicate how big or small a favorite that team is, written in increments of $100. For example, to win $100 on the Twins, a bettor would need to risk $180. On the flip side, a $100 bet on the Pirates would net $150 if they pulled the upset.
The Twins had a disappointing season in 2022 with a record of 78-84 which placed them third in the AL Central division.
Odds can differ from sportsbook to sportsbook, so always make sure you shop for the best line with The Action Network app.
Betting on a team to win or cover a run line isn’t the only type of wager allowed on MLB games. Almost all sportsbooks will offer a total on the game, also known as an over/under. This bet is not on the winner of the contest, but on the number of runs the two teams will combine to score; sportsbooks hang a number, and bettors can wager either over or under that total.
If the number for our hypothetical Twins-Pirates matchup was 8 runs, over bettors would require 9 points or more to cash their tickets, while those who bet the under would need 7 or fewer runs. If the two teams scored exactly 8 runs between them, that bet would push and all wagers would be refunded.
Twins totals in 2022 were in the middle of the pack when betting the over, hitting at a 74-76-12 clip.
Some bettors find more entertainment and success betting on more specific outcomes than the result of the game. Prop bets cover a wide market of wagers on player stats, discrete in-game events, and any style of yes/no question. Many props are bets on specific players and their performance, such as betting Alex Kirilloff over 1.5 hits on a given night, or betting that Joe Ryan will strike out over 9.5 batters. Some props can be shorter term, such as betting on the number of runs scored in the first five innings or who will hit a home run. Offerings tend to vary depending on the sportsbook, so use our sportsbook reviews to find the best bet for you.
Expectations are high right now in Minnesota, bettors will still have to shop for the best line to get good odds on Twins futures bets. Futures are bets that focus on long term outcomes, like the Twins to win the AL Central, win the American League Pennant, win the World Series, or even individual awards like winning league MVP.
