The Twins come into game one of this series winners of three straight over Baltimore, and will turn to Jake Odorizzi to get their fourth straight. Odorizzi is looking for his second straight win after he gave up only one run in 5 and two thirds innings against Toronto. He has a lifetime record of 3-1 against the Houston Astros.
Minnesota continues to sit atop the very tight AL Central with a half game lead over the Cleveland Indians. The Twins scored 26 runs in their three game series with Baltimore, and are now averaging 5.63 runs per game while giving up 4.57 runs per game to their opponents. They are currently 7-3 in road ballgames.
After their extended winning streak over the past two weeks, the Astros now find themselves back in second place after the Seattle Mariners had some weekend success in Anaheim. Houston will roll out Brad Peacock to the mound in hopes of regaining their spot atop the AL West. This will be Peacock’s first start after his 10 day stint in the bullpen. He comes in with a 2-0 record with a 3.94 ERA and 15 strikeouts.
For the second straight day, the Astros gave up more than nine runs to the Texas Rangers. The 11 runs that Texas has scored through 8 on Sunday is the most the Astros have given up all year. They come into Monday averaging 4.4 runs per game while giving up 3.35 runs a game to their opponents.

Free Minnesota Twins vs. Houston Astros MLB Prediction:
The Twins are on a roll at the moment, but they haven’t fared too well in games when Odorrizi starts, though he has been able to shut down the Astros in the past. Houston is in a funk, having let their instate counterparts get the best of them, and are in need of a win at home to get back to first place. This one could get interesting.
