The Minnesota Twins and Boston Red Sox face off on Saturday in an American League MLB showdown at Fenway Park. On Friday it was the Twins that were able to win 8-4. More important for the Twins though Byron Buxton was hurt and it’s unclear how many games he will have to miss. 

The Twins come into this game with a 3-4 record and although the offense hasn’t been great, they did breakout on Friday scoring the eight runs. In the previous two games the Twins had only scored two runs total, and  they are going to need a lot more offensive production going forward.

The Red Sox’s bullpen had seven innings of work on Friday and that could be a factor in this game. 

Getting the start for the Twins will be Sonny Gray who went 4.2 innings in his first start against the Seattle Mariners giving up four hits and two runs. 

On the mound for the Red Sox will be Tanner Houck and in his first start he went 3.1 innings giving up six hits and three runs. 

The Twins are 4-1 in their last five road games. The Red Sox are 6-2 in their last eight games played on Saturday. The under is 5-1-2 in the Twins last eight games overall. The under is 4-1 in the Red Sox’s last five games overall. The Twins are 3-5 in their last eight meetings against Boston. 

Houck didn’t look great in his first game and the Twins offense has a ton of confidence heading into this game. Look for the Twins offense to run up the score and this game is going to get out of hand early. Back the Twins -1.5 to cash. In terms of the total the over is also going to cash.
