Minnesota is 8-1 in their last 9 games and 5-1 in their last 6 game 3’s of a series. The over is 2-0-2 in Minnesota’s last 4 Sunday games. Tampa Bay is 5-2 in their last 7 games and 55-24 in their last 79 home games. The under is 8-3-2 in Tampa Bay’s last 13 game 3’s of a series. The over is 34-16-2 in these two teams last 52 head to head meetings.

Tampa Bay will be rolling with a bullpen game on the series finale, while Winder has not lasted very long in his first few starts. Both of these teams are playing well right now, but Tampa Bay was able to put a stop to the Twins eight game winning streak on Saturday. The I like the Rays to get back to back wins here.
