Minnesota Twins vs Los Angeles Angels prediction

This is a strange line when you consider the Twins are the better team than the Angels and have put together a strong week. Chris Paddack has had his struggles, sure, but Jose Soriano hasn't quite lit it up this season and the Angels have lost every game he's pitched this month. Soriano is also just getting used to the starting role, so that doesn't help matters. I don't understand why the Twins are underdogs, but I'm not going to argue with oddsmakers to get them to change their mind. Give me the Twins and the more favorable price.
