Minnesota is 5-2 in their last 7 game one’s of a series and 36-16 in their last 52 Monday games. The under is 4-0-1 in Minnesota’s last 5 Monday games. New York is 8-3 in their last 11 Monday games and 42-17 in their last 59 home games. The under is 5-0 in New York’s last 5 home games. The over is 12-3-1 in these two teams last 16 head to head meetings in New York.
The Yankees were able to finally get a win against the Rays to close out their last series, which helped keep their lead in the AL East. Minnesota is tied for the AL Central lead with Cleveland. Both of these teams have struggled in recent games, but I am taking New York here. I think the Yankees bats will come alive against Archer and I like them to win by two runs.
