Twins vs. Red Sox, 2:10 p.m. ET
Run line: Twins -1.5 (+145), Red Sox +1.5 (-165)
Moneyline odds: Red Sox -115, Twins -105
The Twins are 2-4 and the Red Sox are 3-3 to start the season. Neither starting pitcher had a good first outing and is looking to bounce back in this game. Ryan pitched 4.0 innings and had four walks, four strikeouts with a 4.50 ERA in his loss. Pivetta also took the loss in 5.2 innings with four hits, but two being home runs. Each of these lineups are needing a spark which has this game with close odds for both teams. Byron Buxton and Rafael Devers are the hitters to watch in this one.
ML pick: Red Sox
Rafael Devers, Over 1.5 hits (+200)
Devers has a hit in every game this season so far. He has been a consistent part of the Boston lineup and has a good matchup today. Devers bats lefty taking on the right-handed Ryan. He started Opening Day for Minnesota, but only pitched four innings. Devers has had a grat start to the season and that continues in the first game of this series.
