The Minnesota Twins have fired manager Paul Molitor after four seasons , according toUSA Today's Bob Nightengale.Molitor was hired by the Twins in November 2014 after Ron Gardenhire was fired. The Hall of Famer had a successful first season with the team, posting an 83-79 record and keeping them in playoff contention until the final weekend of the year.For his efforts in 2015, Molitor finished third in American League Manager of the Year voting. He took home the trophy last season after leading the team to an 85-77 record and trip to the American League Wild Card Game.Expectations were understandably high for the team coming into 2018, especially with young stars like Miguel Sano and Byron Buxton poised to play significant roles after showing promise the previous season.Instead, everything that could go wrong in Minnesota seemingly did. Buxton only appeared in 28 games and was demoted after posting a .383 OPS. Sano battled injuries early in the year, resulting in his OPS dropping from .859 to .679.The Twins finished second in the AL Central with a 78-84 record, but it marked their sixth losing season since 2011. They made the postseason six times from 2002-10.After trading Brian Dozier and seeing Joe Mauer hitfree agency Stephen Piscotty Jersey , the Twins are entering a rebuilding phase. Based on where things currently stand with the organization, adding a new voice to the mix will help get things back on track after a disappointing final season under Molitor. The Colorado Rockies (91-72) will play in a different city for the third time in three days Tuesday when they visit the Chicago Cubs (95-68) as small road underdogs in the National League Wild Card game.Both the Cubs and Rockies are coming off losses in divisional tiebreaker games on Monday, with Chicago falling 3-1 at home to the Milwaukee Brewers and Colorado dropping a 5-2 decision to the Los Angeles Dodgers.MLB betting line: The Cubs opened as -128 favorites (wager $128 to win $100); the total is at 7.5 runs, according to sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark. (Line updates and matchup report)Check out the OddsShark podcast on iTunes or Spotify or at for more odds information, betting picks and a breakdown of this week's top sports betting news.Why the Rockies can pay on the MLB linesThe Rockies went 44-38 on the road during the regular season, including Monday's setback. But they still have life and will be playing a reeling Cubs team that probably should not even be in this position right now. Chicago is just 6-6 in its last 12 games while Colorado got into the postseason by winning nine of 11.The Rockies will send southpaw Kyle Freeland (17-7, 2.85 ERA) to the hill , and he has not suffered a loss since August 1. Since then, they are 10-1 in Freeland's last 11 starts, with him going a perfect 8-0 during that stretch. He is 12-4 with a 2.49 ERA in 21 starts under the lights.Why the Cubs can pay on the MLB linesThe Cubs have a lot more playoff experience and hope that will benefit them in this situation. Countering Freeland will be a pitcher who has been here before in veteran Jon Lester (18-6, 3.32 ERA), who also finished strong to close out the regular season. Lester has gone 6-1 in his last eight outings with one no-decision that Chicago rallied to win anyway after he left the game.Lester has not allowed more than three runs in any of his starts over that period and pitched well in his lone appearance versus Colorado back on April 30, giving up two unearned runs and five hits in 5.2 innings of a 3-2 victory. Smart betting pickThe Rockies have fared well against the Cubs over the past two seasons, going 8-5 in 13 meetings Jake Smolinski Jersey , according to the OddsShark MLB Database. In addition, they are 6-2 in their last eight games at Wrigley Field. Take Colorado to pull off the upset on the road. MLB betting trendsColorado is 9-2 in its last 11 games.The total has gone under in 11 of Colorado's last 15 games on the road.The total has gone under in six of Chicago's last nine games.All MLB odds and betting trends according to Bleacher Report's official odds partner, OddsShark.
