The Minnesota Twins last postseason appearance came in the 2010 season, and it was the fifth straight playoff series for the Twins where they failed to get out of the Divisonal round. In fact, the last three times the Twins have made the playoffs (2006, 2009, 2010) they failed to win a single game; getting swept each time. Those defeats prompted the organization to blow up the roster and start from scratch to rebuild.
Since then, Minnesota hasn't found much of any success, sporting a losing record of 20 or more games below .500 for four straight years. The 2015 season saw Minnesota turn things around with a 83-79 record as they became one of the more surprising success stories from a betting perspective with their lucrative Minnesota Twins odds.

Bet On Minnesota Twins Games
After four seasons of many more losses than wins, the 2015 season for the Minnesota Twins was viewed as a step in the right direction for this organization. They may have still missed the playoffs and been just four games over the .500 mark (83-79 SU), but bettors prefer the fact that they finished the year 20.3 units up on moneyline bets.
That means, that if you were to put $100 on the Twins to win every game in 2015, you ended up profiting a little over $2000 ($2030). That number alone goes to show you how undervalued Minnesota was at times and how often they came through as a +175 or +200 or greater underdog.
As positive as those numbers were, it's up to you to really determine if 2015 was more of a “one-off” season for this organization, or truly a step back up the climb towards relevance again. The Twins have some solid young building blocks in 3B/OF Miguel Sano and OF Byron Buxton, and 1B Joe Mauer can still hit with the best of them in this league. Being as young as they are, the Twins will still experience some growing pains the next few years, but counting them out as big underdogs may be a mistake as the 2015 season proved.
This is an organization that has to develop many players from within to remain competitive, and the next few seasons for Minnesota will be very telling in that regard.
