Minnesota Twins vs. Detroit Tigers MLB Prediction:
Both of these teams need to start playing better if they wish to salvage anything out of their season. I look for the Twins to start off the series in a good way.
The Twins are the better team and have more talent, but they have not showed it this year. I look for them to show it on Friday.
Jose Urena has not been great this year and the Twins should be able to hit him around enough in order to get a win.
I will lay the run line with the Twins on the road in this one.
