Minnesota is 5-11 in their last 16 Thursday games and 3-8 in their last 11 game three’s of a series. The under is 4-1 in Minnesota’s last 5 Thursday games. Boston is 7-15 in their last 22 Thursday games and 4-2 in their last 6 home games. The over is 7-1 in Boston’s last 8 Thursday games. The over is 9-2-1 in these two teams last 12 head to head meetings.


Both of these teams have won one game in this series and will be looking for the series win in this matchup. Despite losing Game 2 of this series, Boston has played very well over the last week. Neither pitcher has impressed me very much, but I am going to side with Houck and the Red Sox in this game. Houck doesn’t go very deep into games, but the Red Sox have won all three of his starts. Take the Red Sox here.
