Minnesota is 6-1 in their last 7 Monday games and 5-2 in their last 7 game 1’s of a series. The under is 7-2-1 in Minnesota’s last 10 games. Oakland is 5-12 in their last 17 games and 1-9 in their last 10 home games. The under is 7-2-3 in Oakland’s last 12 games. Minnesota is 18-39 in these two teams last 57 head to head meetings in Oakland.

Both of these teams have struggled in recent games, but the Twins continue to stay in first place in the AL Central. Archer is coming off of a rough start where he allowed 4 earned runs over 3 innings, while Logue has had two really nice starts this season. Even though Oakland has been horrible in their last 10 home games, I think they have value here.
