Minnesota Twins vs Chicago White Sox Prediction

I’m on the Twins here. It would be nice to see who they start here, but the Twins are just flat out rolling right now and Chris Flexen isn’t the pitcher I’d rely on to slow them down. Not just that, but the White Sox have to be somewhat dejected after a series loss to Miami in one of the most winnable spots on their schedule if we’re being honest. I think the Twins can keep their focus going here enough to keep the wins coming heading into the all-star break. Give me Minnesota.

Chris’s Pick Minnesota -180
