The Twins offense has scored 488 runs with a .251 batting average and a .321 on base percentage. Byron Buxton is batting .219 with 26 home runs and 47 RBI’s for the Twins this season.

Minnesota is 17-35 in their last 52 Tuesday games and 1-4 in their last 5 road games. The over is 5-1 in Minnesota’s last 6 game one’s of a series. Los Angeles is 57-17 in their last 74 home games and 21-6 in their last 27 games against the AL Central. The over is 4-1-1 in Los Angeles’ last 6 Tuesday games. Minnesota is 0-8 in these two teams last 8 head to head meetings.

Both of these teams come into this series in first place in their respective divisions, but the Dodgers are the far better team. Los Angeles has the best team ERA in baseball and is second in runs scored. Los Angeles will start Julio Urias, who has allowed three runs in his last 26 innings of work. For the Twins, Joe Ryan has allowed one or fewer in three of his last four outings. Ryan did allow 10 runs to the Padres two starts ago, but that looks like more of an outlier. I like the under in this game between two very good pitchers.
