White Sox vs Twins Prediction


Our prediction for the Twins vs. White Sox matchup is to take the Twins on the money line. However, with a -260 payout, we don’t see a ton of value in this, and we would recommend taking the over at 7.5 runs.

If you’re looking for a parlay, you could pair the Twins with an over 7.5 runs pick, as we have the Twins winning this one 5-4. Looking at the starting pitchers, Pablo Lopez has a much better chance of picking up a win compared to Erick Fedde, and Lopez is projected to finish with seven strikeouts.
