Minnesota is 4-1 in their last 5 game one’s of a series and 13-31 in their last 44 road games. The under is 6-1-1 in Minnesota’s last 8 games. Boston is 11-5 in their last 16 home games and 5-11 in their last 16 Tuesday games. The under is 4-1 in Boston’s last 5 home games. The over is 7-2-1 in these two teams last 10 head to head meetings.


The Twins have started the season playing well, but they did lose their last two games against the Yankees. Boston is coming off of a series win against the Angels, but will have Chris Sale on the mound for this game. Sale has struggled this season, allowing 15 earned runs over 12 innings pitched. The Twins will have Sonny Gray on the mound, who has only allowed one earned run over 17.0 innings pitched this year. I like the Twins in this matchup.
