3 units on Minnesota +110 (moneyline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: WIN
The leaders of the AL Central and AL East clash in this one. Minnesota is a balanced team, combining good pitching and solid hitting. Boston has been on a good run of late, but their offense on the road remains suspect. While scoring nearly six runs per game at home, they are averaging just 4.4 per game on the road. They send Jon Lester to the mound which bodes well for the Twins who are averaging 5.0 runs per game against lefties. Boof Bonser goes for the Twinkies and he is 20-10 the past three seasons in expected close gams (+125 to -125 moneyline). We'll back the home team in this one.
