Los Angeles Angels vs. Minnesota Twins MLB Prediction:
The Angels need to start playing better if they want to gain ground in their division. This is a good series to get right against a struggling Twins team.
This year, the Angels have been the better team. They have found some success against the Twins earlier and I look for that to happen again on Thursday.
I look for Heaney to be solid and for the Angels to hit around Maeda enough to get a win.
I will go with the Angels as +115 road dogs.
