Twins in Astros picks and predictions


Twins 4, Astros 3

money line

TWINS BET (+116).

The Twins have been on a roll lately, winning 4 of their last 6 games as their offense has been more reliable, scoring at least 4 runs in all 4 wins. They will also have a pitching advantage, as Brown has struggled for most of the season.

With Houston below .500 at home and having scored 5 runs or less in 8 straight and 2 or less in 5 of them, he may not find the bats to come out victorious in 2 straight. Return the extra money TWINS (+116).

Running line/Against the spread


There’s just not great value here. The Astros -1.5 (+150) are too risky as a running favorite, and the Twins +1.5 (-188) are too expensive as a running underdog. Avoid this play.


BET UNDER 8.5 (-102).

Both teams have leaned heavily towards the Under. The Twins have been Under in 4 of their last 5 games and are 2-7-1 O/U in their last 10. They are 25-31-2 O/U on the season and have been Under in 3 starts consecutive Woods Richardson. .

The Astros have trailed in 8 consecutive games and are 20-35-3 O/U on the season. They have come up short in 2 straight Brown starts and have allowed 4+ runs in just 1 of their last 10 games.

Back LESS THAN 8.5 (-102).
