The Minnesota Twins and the New York Yankees meet in MLB action from Yankee Stadium on Sunday. Let’s dive into the odds, starting pitching matchup, history and make a prediction for this game.
The Yankees are -155 home favorites while the Twins are +135 road underdogs. The total for this game is set at 7 runs.
Starting Pitching Matchup
Pablo Lopez will start for the Twins and is 1-0 with a 1.35 ERA and 26 strikeouts this season. New York is sending out Gerrit Cole here and Cole is 3-0 with a 1.40 ERA and 22 strikeouts this season.
New York’s 6-1 win on Saturday snapped Minnesota’s three-game head-to-head win streak over the Yankees.
Minnesota is 4-1 in their last 5 games overall and 10-25 in their last 35 games against a team with a winning record while the under is 2-0-2 in their last 4 games following a loss. New York is 61-28 in their last 89 home games and 21-10 in their last 31 home games against a team with a right-handed starter while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 home games.
I’m leaning Yankees here. New York finally got on the board on Saturday with a win and I think they can earn a series split here. Pablo Lopez has been a nice pickup for the Twins, but the defense and run support has been problematic in spots and I don’t know if that changes here. I’m always concerned about home runs with Gerrit Cole, but I think the Yankees do enough behind him to get a win here. Give me New York.
