Baseball underdogs had one of their best days Wednesday, going 9-6 to take most of the money in Vegas.

The Twins, with the worst record in baseball, led the way, winning at Detroit while getting +165 on the moneyline. Also, the Phillies beat Matt Garza and the Cubs as +145 dogs, the Reds beat Johan Santana and the Mets getting +120 and the Blue Jays beat the Yankees getting +115.

The Tigers are the biggest chalk again Thursday, as teams finish off two-game sets before embarking on the first round of interleague play of the season.

"Interleague play brings its own set of handicapping rules and teams that perform better than expected," said Mike Pickett of OddsShark.com. "For today, we like Matt Cain at a very small moneyline to win at home against St. Louis."
