I'm playing MINNESOTA on the run-line (+1.5 runs) While I like the Twins to win this one "outright," note that three of Montas' past four starts, one of them against these same Twins, ended up as 1-run Oakland wins. Speaking of 1-run games, Oakland's last two visits here both ended up being decided by a single run, a 7-6 win for the Twins and a 5-4 win for the A's. Shoemaker got back on track last time out, as he tossed five shutout innings. His team desperate for a victory, expect Shoemaker to build off that start, leading the Twins to AT LEAST the "run-line cover."
