|MIN (-150) @ betway|
This is an 8* TOP DISCORD SIDE PLAY on the Twins.
The Red Sox and Twins get ready to play a double-header on Wednesday, and we think the opening game favors the home side.
The Twins come in as the hungrier team here, as they've lost three in a row, including a 4-2 setback in the opener of this four-game series with Boston.
The Red Sox lost their first three games at home to the Orioles, and they haven't lost since, going a perfect 7-0, including yesterday's series opening victory.
Winning can absolutely lead to complacency and losing breeds motivation.
Nathan Eovaldi of the Red Sox and Kenta Maeda of the Twins are a "wash" in this opening game. So too are these hitting line-ups.
Note though that Minnesota is 7-2 in its last nine after three or more straight losses in a row, while Boston is just 3-6 in its last nine after five or more straight victories in a row.
Look for the hungry home side to answer (in Game 1 at least!)
Good luck, NP
