The Minnesota Twins are 2-4 this season and have lost two games in a row. The Twins were swept in their last series 2-0 at home against the Dodgers. The Minnesota Twins pitching staff has a 3.83 ERA, 1.35 WHIP, and a .207 opponent batting average. The Twins offense has scored 20 runs with a .181 batting average and a .256 on base percentage. Gary Sanchez, who has 5 RBI, and Byron Buxton, who has 3 home runs, has carried the Minnesota offense. The projected starter for the Twins is Joe Ryan, who is 0-1 this season with a 4.50 ERA and a 1.50 WHIP across 4 innings.
The Boston Red Sox are 3-3 this season and have won three of their last four games. Boston is coming off of a series win, 2-1, on the road against the Tigers. The Boston pitching staff has a 4.08 ERA, 1.26 WHIP, and a .238 opponent batting average. The Red Sox offense has scored 26 runs with a .216 batting average and a .287 on base percentage. Rafael Devers has led the Boston offense with a .346 batting average and 5 RBI’s. The projected starter for Boston is Nick Pivetta, who is 0-1 with a 6.35 ERA and a 1.24 WHIP across 5.2 innings.
The under is 6-0-1 in Minnesota’s last 7 games as an underdog and the under is 6-0 in Minnesota’s last 6 games against the AL East. Boston is 0-4 in Pivetta’s last 4 starts on grass and the under is 4-0 in Boston’s last 4 games against a team with a winning percentage below.400. The over is 4-1 in these two teams last 5 head to head meetings.
Both of these starting pitchers have struggled so far this season, which means we could see some runs in this one. I think this game is a toss up, but I really do like the over. Both teams should be into their bullpens early in this one. If I had to pick who was going to win, I would lean Boston at home.
