Trends

Minnesota is 6-1 in their last 7 game two’s of a series and 6-3 in their last 9 games. The over is 4-2-1 in Minnesota’s last 7 games. Chicago is 7-21 in their last 28 games and 1-4 in their last 5 game two’s of a series. The over is 11-4-1 in Chicago’s last 16 home games. Minnesota is 2-6 in these two teams last 8 head to head meetings in Chicago.

Pick

Chicago has not played very well to start the season, but they have won two games in a row, including a win against the Rays. Minnesota is leading the AL Central and is the only team above .500 in the Central. Minnesota is starting Louie Varland, who is only making his second start this year. Chicago is starting Dylan Cease, who has allowed nine earned runs over his last 8 innings of work. I am going to take Chicago in this game, as I trust Cease a lot more than I trust Varland.
