Tom Stryker’s Free Baseball Play June 10th


#908 MINNESOTA RUN LINE with Paddack (-1′ -105) over Colorado with Hudson at 7:40 PM EST
Checking in off a much-needed road win at Pittsburgh, Minnesota will return to the Twin Cities for the first time since May 30th and pound visiting Colorado. The Rockies got clobbered inside Busch Stadium by the Cardinals yesterday and this will be another challenging trip for one of the worst teams in the National League.

Grabbing the pearl for the home team will be right-hander Chris Paddack. With 12 starts to his credit this season, No. 20 has been tapped for 38 earned runs and 78 hits in 65.0 innings. Chris whiffed 61 and walked 14 on his way to a 4-3 record with a 5.26 ERA. Thankfully, inside Target Field, Paddack has been at his best surrendering just 14 earned runs and 43 hits in 38.2 frames. After the math, that equates to a 3-1 mark with a solid 3.26 ERA.

Picking up the pill for the visitors will be right-hander Dakota Hudson. So far this year, No. 32 has made 12 official starts and been tagged for 36 earned runs and 61 hits in 61.2 innings of work. Dakota struck out 35 and walked 33 (serious control problems) on his way to a 2-7 tally with a 5.25 ERA. In his last outing on June 5th at home against the Reds, Hudson was hammered for four earned runs and five hits (two of which left the park) in 4.1 frames.

On a technical note, Minnesota has quietly won 22 of its last 32 when matched up against a foe that carries a team won/loss percentage less than .500. Meanwhile, Colorado has fallen in 25 of its last 35 as a guest, 31 of its last 48 facing a right-handed starter, and 24 of its last 38 under the lights.

The Rockies bullpen has been atrocious in their last seven games giving up 21 earned runs and 33 hits in 27.0 innings (that’s a lofty 7.00 ERA). The Twins will have no trouble piling up runs late in this mismatch. Take Minnesota on the run line with Paddack. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.


Holding a 12-3-1 mark in June and off a win on the Yankees last night and a push with the Mavericks, Stryker heads back to the diamond with one MLB investment that will rake in the cash. This power play backs a solid arm in a strong situation and one highly profitable 26-5 trend applies. Grab Tom’s MLB High Roller Run Line Best Bet for $30.
