Why The Twins Could Cover The Spread

Minnesota needs Ober to have a huge game if they want to keep this one close. Through eight starts, Ober has been very good. He has a 2.33 ERA, 0.97 WHIP, and an oBA of just .205. He needs to be at the top of his game if the Twins want to end their losing streak. Ober has allowed less than three runs in six of his eight starts and has not allowed more than six hits in any of his starts. Tampa Bay has not been hitting the ball well lately, so Ober should be able to keep the Twins close.

Why The Rays Could Cover The Spread

The Rays have not named their starter yet, but that should not matter. They have one of the best pitching staffs in the MLB right now. Tampa Bay has the third lowest ERA, second lowest oBA, second lowest WHIP, and fifth fewest hits allowed. The Rays have been getting it done on the mound all season, no matter who it is pitching the ball. Minnesota is an awful team at the plate. They are batting below .230 as a team and have struck out 28 more times than the next closes team. Minnesota averages 10.22 strikeouts per game at the plate. The Rays just need to pitch as they have been all season, and they will complete this sweep.

Final Twins-Rays Prediction & Pick

The Rays are just way to good at home. Expect Tampa Bay to pick up the win and cover the spread.

Final Twins-Rays Prediction & Pick: Rays -1.5 (+168), Over 7.5 (-118)
