Boston Red Sox vs Minnesota Twins Prediction

We haven’t played a YRFI all year but this feels as good of a spot I’ve seen. This game is a 10-point total and these two teams have great top-of-the-lineups. In five out of six Twins games there has been a run in the first inning and in four out of six games there has been a run in the first inning. Tonight features two below-average pitchers in Nick Pivetta and Joe Ryan so I like the chances of at least one of them getting shelled early.

Joe Ryan doesn't have any experience against any of these batters but has allowed two runs in his opening start against Seattle. He will now likely face Hernandez, Devers, Boegarts, and Martinez. That will be no easy task with his lack of experience in the MLB thus far. On the other end, we have Pivetta. Pivetta will likely face Buxton, Arreaz, Correa, and Polanco. The whole team actaully destroys this guy as he has allowed 13 hits in 27 at bats with two walks for a .517 OBP. I don’t know which one will give up a run but I like our chances at least one does.

First innings are known to historically be the highest-scoring inning and with a total of 10 and these two unestablished pitchers on the mound, this feels like a good bet. This game will also be taking place at Fenway which bodes well for us and we could get a home run here that we wouldn’t be able to get at other parks. I know this isn’t a regular pick for us but each slate I try to tackle individually and not put myself in a box. This is a bet that will set the tone of the day for us and I would love to start on the right note, let's start with some hot bats, shall we?
