New York Yankees vs. Minnesota Twins AL Wild Card Game - 10/3/17 MLB Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Watch: Masahiro Tanaka helps tie Yankees' strikeout record

The New York Yankees are betting favorites over the Minnesota Twins in the 2017 AL Wild-Card Game.

Santana, 34, went 16-8 with a 3.28 ERA this season and is 2-2 in eight postseason appearances.

Twins: RH Ervin Santana (16-8, 3.28 ERA, 167 Ks in 211 1/3 IP).

Sonny Gray is on the Yankees' roster for Tuesday's AL Wild Card game against the Twins.

Here are three keys to the New York Yankees coming away with the victory in the American League Wild Card Game on Tuesday night.

The victor of this game will advance to play the defending American League champion Indians in the AL Division Series starting Friday in Cleveland. The Twins can make a serious statement if they manage to knock off the Yankees at 8 p.m. ET.

Between the top pitchers on the mound and the bats expected to take the field, today could be a prime moneymaking opportunity for all DFS players.

Rams continue strong start, rally past Cowboys 35-30
All they had against the Cardinals was one three-and-out possession totaling 3 yards as the defense struggled as well. In four games, the Rams have already scored 142 points, showing off a 37 point differential in the scoring as well.

The Twins have one game to make a statement, one win to change history and enough confidence not to be burdened by it all. "I think we're encouraged that he's going to be available (Tuesday) in some capacity".

Tigers: The offseason. They finish with a 64-98 record, their most losses since they went 43-119 in 2003.

This is Minnesota's first appearance in the wild-card game.

The pitching matchup is an interesting battle between Luis Severino and longtime ace Ervin Santana. However, much like the Yankees, the Twins thrive off the energy of critics counting them out.

"I think there was a stretch where he was matched up against (Boston's Chris) Sale, (Clevelan's Corey) Kluber, and then Sale again, and I thought he responded really well and pitched really good games", said Yankees manager Joe Girardi prior to Monday's workout. Just trying to be positive and just create good things for me and for our team.

"To me, I feel good about going in", he said.

Santana made one start against the Yanks this season, allowing two earned runs over 5 2/3 innings. Maybe most importantly, keep Aaron Judge and his 52 home runs in the ballpark. Anything is possible. But if their respective final months were any indication, the deck is stacked heavily toward the Yankees.The Indians will present a far different challenge. After acquiring Garcia from Atlanta to boost the rotation, the front office flipped him to the Yankees days later — and sent All-Star closer Brandon Kintzler to Washington — right before the July 31 trade deadline in response to a rough road trip and a simultaneous surge by division rivals Cleveland and Kansas City. In right field, Max Kepler has just two errors in 299 total chances, and Eddie Rosario has just four errors in 274 chances. This being the best teams won a lot and the not-good teams lost a lot.
