Nover’s View: Twins-Red Sox Free Tuesday Play

On August 24, 2021, in Free Picks, MLB, by Stephen

Twins plus $2.04 at Red Sox

This is a monster price the Red Sox are being asked to lay, especially considering they aren’t playing well and have unfavorable circumstances.

Boston is 2-4 in its last six games. The Red Sox were embarrassed, 10-1, by the Rangers this past Saturday committing a season-high five errors.

Boston’s Sunday game was postponed and then the Red Sox had to go 11 innings on Monday to defeat the Rangers, who are 8-26 since the All-Star break. That’s the fewest wins of any team during this time span. 

The Twins are in rebuild, but are better than the Rangers and in a good spot having been idle the past two days. They get back Miguel Sano from paternity leave. He’s second on the team in homers and RBI’s. The Twins have hit 15 more home runs than the Red Sox. 

The pitching matchup is Griffin Jax versus Tanner Houck, who has better season numbers than Jax. However, the Red Sox are just 3-3 in Houck’s last six starts. Jax has been pitching better going 2-0 with a 3.12 ERA in his last three starts. 

So at this huge ‘dog price, I’ll throw a peanut on the Twins.
