White Sox vs Twins Prediction


Our prediction for the Twins vs. White Sox game is to take the over, as we see the Twins coming out on top by a final score of 5-4. However, at -252 on the money line, we don’t see a ton of value in that bet.

Instead, we recommend taking the over at 7.5 runs, as there is a lot of value on the over at -116. Looking at some of the starting pitcher projections, Michael Soroka is predicted to pick up just four strikeouts, and we have him going five innings.
