Upgrade to View Prediction

The Twins have the clear advantage in this matchup with their superior hitting, bullpen, and starting pitching. Erick Fedde has been solid for the White Sox, but the Twins' offense should be able to get to him early. Bailey Ober has been consistent for the Twins, and their bullpen has been reliable in closing out games. Given the disparity in team performance and recent form, the Twins are the safer bet to win this game.
