Tampa Bay Rays vs Minnesota Twins Prediction

The Twins are going to find success here. Woods-Richardons wasn’t as good in his last start but he’s going to bounce back in a big way here. The Rays offense hasn’t been good overall and they are going to really struggle to get anything going here. The Twins will get to Littell early, and that is going to be the difference here as hte Twins are going to cruise to the victory. Back the Twins on the money line.
