Score: 6 - 2
Point Spread: +1½/-115 Minnesota
*3 Star MLB Runline Value* Yu Darvish is a very talented pitcher, but he showed in his first start in the majors that he is definitely not unhittable. Seattle may have the worst lineup in baseball, and they touched him up for four runs. Minnesota has Mauer and Morneau in the middle of the order, and Josh Willingham is as hot as anyone in the league right now. Nick Blackburn is a serviceable starter who fares well at home normally. I think the public loves Darvish too much. I like getting the +1.5 with the home team here. Take the Twins +1.5.
