Twins vs. White Sox: Predicting a 5-4 Twins Win, But Bet on the Over!

Our predicted final score for this Twins vs. White Sox matchup is 5-4 in favor of the Twins. However, we are actually recommending that you take the over, as we see the total runs hitting the over at 8.5.

You could also look to take the Twins on the money line, but with a payout of -162, we don’t see the risk being worth the reward. Looking at the starting pitchers, we have Erick Fedde going 6 innings and Bailey Ober going 5.2 innings.
