In this matchup, we predict that the game will go under 8.5 runs. Here's why:

Both starting pitchers, Alec Marsh and Joe Ryan, have demonstrated solid control and effectiveness on the mound this season. Marsh has a commendable 2.72 ERA, while Ryan has been consistently good with a 3.15 ERA.

The Royals and Twins both have reliable bullpens, which further supports the likelihood of a low-scoring game. Additionally, the weather conditions in Minneapolis, with cooler temperatures at 62°F, could also contribute to limiting offensive production.

Both teams' recent performances have included several low-scoring games, indicating a trend towards tighter, more defensive matchups. Considering these factors, an under 8.5 runs prediction is well-supported.

Pick: Under 8.5 Runs (-125)
