(MLB) Chi White Sox vs. Minnesota, 05/17/2021 7:40 PM, Score: 16 - 4
Money Line: -102.00 Minnesota (Home)
Result: Loss
The set-up: I like the "hungrier" home side to deliver the goods in this matchup. The Twins have losg eight of ten. That includes getting swept by the White Sox in Chicago last week. Note that the Twins are 7-1 in their last eight in the first game of a series vs. a team, after getting swept in a series vs. that team previously.

The pick: Dallas Keuchel and JA Happ each had terrible games vs. each other last week and each should be sharper this time around. Let's call that department a wash. Note though that the Twins are 7-3 in their last ten after allowing seven of more runs in a home loss in their previous outing (lost 7-6 yesterday here to the A's.) Great value on the hungry home side!

This is a 10* GAME OF THE WEEK on the Twins.
