Minnesota is 4-2 in their last 6 games and 1-5 in their last 6 Thursday games. The under is 5-0 in Minnesota’s last 5 game five’s of a series. Cleveland is 2-5 in their last 7 home games and 1-4 in their last 5 game five’s of a series. The under is 3-1-1 in Cleveland’s last 5 Thursday games. The under is 6-2 in these two teams last 8 head to head meetings in Cleveland.

Both of these teams come into this game with two wins in the series and will be looking for the series win here. Minnesota is starting Chris Archer, who has been very solid this season, but does not pitch a lot of innings. For the Guardians, Shane Bieber has allowed three runs or fewer in each of his last five starts. With this pitching matchup, I like the under in this game.
