Twins vs White Sox Predictions
Two starting pitchers who have been hit hard lately go at it tonight. Based on what I have seen from these two over last month. Neither should go over 5 innings. I am taking two bets on this game and both will be straight bets. Like the over for obvious reasons. I am also taking the Twins because the White Sox have not shown that they can do anything when Sale is not on the field.
