Minnesota Twins vs Houston Astros. The MLB pick for this game is the Houston Astros. The Twins won two of their previous three contests, but six of their last eight road contests ended in losses. Although they boast one of the league’s best offenses, they struggled recently on the road, scoring just 12 runs in their last three games.


Because they had trouble against right-handers and France pitched well for the Astros, allowing only eight earned runs in four starts, their offensive problems will likely continue in this game. The Astros won’t have any issue containing Minnesota’s offense since Houston has the fourth-best bullpen in the league. 


The Astros triumphed in 10 of their last 12 contests, including six straight at home. In their last six home games, they scored 30 runs thanks to solid offensive play. The Astros will likely play well offensively in this game despite Gray’s excellent performance on the mound for the Twins this season.


The Astros have a solid right-handed pitching rotation and had a lot of success against Gray, who gave up ten runs in his last three road starts against the Astros. Because of their previous struggles, Minnesota’s bullpen will find it challenging to contain the hot Astros in this game.


Houston should cover the money line. The Houston Astros will win to a predicted score of 7-3.
