Money Line: 130.00 Minnesota (Away)
Over his last three starts, Archer has a 1.38 ERA and 0.846 WHIP. He tossed five shutout innings of one-hit ball against Colorado last week. Though he’s predominantly been going just four or five innings per start, Archer simply has not been giving up many runs. He’s allowed two runs or less in 12 of his 14 starts this season. Something to note is that going into yesterday’s game, Twins’ pitching had been nothing short of phenomenal over the last week. They’d allowed just eight runs in seven games with three shutouts. This will actually be the first time the Guardians are facing Archer this season.
Shane Bieber isn’t what he once was for Cleveland. He’s been getting hit hard and his strikeout rate is down. As a result, you’re looking at someone that has allowed one HR in three consecutive outings. Though he’s allowed three runs or less each of his last eight starts, Bieber has a 4.23 ERA at home. Cleveland had not topped three runs in a game since 6/22, that was until the bottom of the 10 last night. They scored only 12 runs the previous seven games. 9* Minnesota
