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.
