Minnesota Twins 2024 World Series Odds

Minnesota Twins MLB Betting

The American League Central is embarrassingly bad, but somebody still has to win it. Last year, it was the Minnesota Twins for the third time in five years. Minnesota has made the playoffs in four of the past seven campaigns but has not advanced past the ALDS. The last time Minnesota made the ALCS was in 2002. In the 2024 offseason, the Twins were Minnesota Nice, meaning that they did not gain or lose, which is a perfect performance in a notoriously mediocre division.

In 2023, the Minnesota Twins had a record of 87-75 and finished 1st in the American League Central Division. Offensively, Minnesota ranked 10th for runs scored, 21st for batting average, 7th for OPS, 4th for home runs, and 24th for stolen bases.

Defensively, Minnesota ranked 5th for earned run average, 4th for WHIP, 30th for strikeouts, 1st for quality starts, 3rd for fewest errors, and 15th for bullpen ERA. Minnesota was -509 on the moneyline and -422 on the run line.

Last season, The Twins were a poor performer that ended in red ink despite winning the American League Central. Minnesota does not move the needle with gamblers, but bargain hunters will shop them on the road as a decent team getting the away discount.

Key offseason acquisitions include 1B/DH Carlos Santana, RHP Anthony DeSclafani, RHP Justin Topa, RHP Jay Jackson, and RHP Josh Staumont.

Key offseason departures include RHP Sonny Gray, RHP Kenta Maeda, RHP Emilio Pagán, 2B Jorge Polanco, CF Michael A. Taylor, INF Donovan Solano, 1B/OF Joey Gallo.

Ownership’s mandate to shrink payroll due to an unsettled local television situation increased the degree of difficulty for an already tricky offseason for the Twins, who lost Sonny Gray and Kenta Maeda to free agency and traded Jorge Polanco.

Aside from receiving veteran starter Anthony DeSclafani and reliever Justin Topa as part of the Polanco swap, the Twins’ lone MLB additions this offseason are signing 37-year-old first baseman Carlos Santana and middle relievers Josh Staumont and Jay Jackson for a combined $7 million or so.

Minnesota will clearly be relying on prospects and other minimum-salaried young players to fill lots of gaps this season where veteran depth covered them in 2023. For now, the Twins’ payroll is down almost $35 million, and it’s undeniable they’ve subtracted talent coming off their first playoff series win in two decades, but it’s still their division to win.

Minnesota ranks 19th for MLB payroll.
