Odds as of May 1st.

Cruz Control

Minnesota Twins designated hitter Nelson Cruz has enjoyed a field day at the plate against Kansas City Royals southpaw Danny Duffy. And when Cruz gets a base knock off of Duffy, the odds are better than 50% that he’s going to go yard.

Cruz is 9-for-20 lifetime when facing Duffy. That’s a .450 batting average. More astonishingly, of those nine hits, five are home runs. That means when Cruz connects against Duffy, he’s got a .555 chance of taking him out of the park.

  • Pick: Nelson Cruz 1+ home run (+350).

Ramming Ramirez

Lance Lynn of the Chicago White Sox is one of the most effective pitchers in baseball, except when he faces Cleveland third baseman Jose Ramirez.

Ramirez is batting .300 against Lynn. That total includes a pair of home runs and three RBI.

  • Pick: Jose Ramirez, 1+ home run (+333).
