Twins vs. Tigers DFS MLB Picks, Betting: Hitters Paradise? (Delay Likely) has your Twins vs. Tigers DFS MLB picks and betting with a weather delay likely for this game as storms were rolling into the Detroit area this afternoon.

Twins RH Kyle Gibson (2014: 13-12, 4.47 ERA) vs. Tigers RH Shane Greene (2014: 5-4, 3.78)

With a total of 9 (some books were offering 8.5), this game is expected to be a free for all. 

Gibson had control issues down the stretch last season.  He started in five games last season against Detroit.  In two of those, nine and thirteen runs were permitted (not all by Gibson).

Ian Kinsler and Victor Martinez both enjoyed success against Gibson.  These two players annihilated the Twins right-hander in that one bad 13-4 loss while Kinsler, in particular, is a great option today, having enjoyed a homer and single in his final appearance of the season facing Gibson.  Kinsler single-handedly ensured a win in that game. 

Kinsler is 4-for-8 in the series so far and 6-for-14 with that one home run against Gibson.  He is priced at $4.3K for Thursday’s game.

The Tigers, meanwhile, are priced too high at -158.  Minnesota is yet to score any runs in this opening series over three games.
