Minnesota Twins vs New York Yankees Prediction 

New York comes into this game as one of the best teams in the MLB so far this season and they are 18-8 at home. The Yankees have an outstanding lineup and their pitching staff has been lights out. Minnesota has played very well recently as well and they are 17-13 on the road. The Twins are starting Bailey Ober, who has been too inconsistent and I can’t trust him at all. The Yankees are going with Luis Gil, who might be the best pitcher in all of baseball this season. New York is on a roll right now and I don’t trust Ober to slow them down. My Minnesota Twins vs New York Yankees prediction is for the Yankees to win by at least two runs.
