The Minnesota Twins will be batting against the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field in Chicago, Illinois on Wednesday, July 22, 2020 at 7:05 PM ET. Minnesota (+1) and Chicago (-1.5) will meet Wednesday evening in MLB exhibition action.

Minnesota winning the AL Central last season with 101 victories made a homerun surprise as a team. The Twins have an impressive and respectable pitching staff, but offensively the team only finished second in batting average, second in OPS and first in home runs that led the team’s charge. With the addition of Josh Donaldson, the Twins’ batting line-up actually got better and stronger. Minnesota features three new faces in their starting rotation with Kenta Maeda, Homer Bailey and Rich Hill. That makes a powerful upgrading in their line-up from last season. The Minnesota Twins is the team to watch closely with Homer Bailey as their frontliner and strong hitter.

Minnesota Twins vs Chicago Cubs Predictions 7/22/2020

Chicago lost twice against the Chicago White Sox (-1) during their pre-season games. Javier Baez and Kyle Schwarber contributed a combined effort for two hits and two RBIs. Yu Darvish allowed five runs and seven hits during the four innings. In order to get going stronger and better with the regular season coming soon, the Chicago Cubs must be more consistent in their offenses. Jon Lester will be the strong batter and hard hitter that the Cubs can rely on in tonight’s contest.

The Minnesota Twins was a surprise team last season winning the AL Central, while the Chicago Cubs is trying to recover from their double defeat from their pre-season games against the White Sox. The Cubs outscored 6-12 during that stretch.

Minnesota Twins vs. Chicago Cubs. The MLB pick for this contest is Chicago Cubs -1.5. Tonight’s game will be a battle between two pitchers. Minnesota’s Homer Bailey and Chicago’s Jon Lester are the pitchers to bet, as they both have ERAs well over four during the last season and can give up the long ball as they allowed a combined 47 homers last year. But Jon Lester got the edge by doing a better job of giving pitches that missed bats. The Chicago Cubs perform better in chasing a title and much better than what they showed in previous exhibition games. Having a short regular season that makes every game important and critical, the Chicago Cubs can’t afford to lose three straight contests this pre-season. The Cubs badly needed a good win to feel comfortable in entering the season this Friday. The prediction, pick the Chicago Cubs to a score of 7-5.
