The Twins hold on to a 1/2 game lead in the Central heading into a 4-game series in Arlington. Minnesota is coming off a 2-game split at Milwaukee but lost 3 of 4 at home prior to that vs. Cleveland. The Indians have a tough weekend ahead at Yankee Stadium, so the time is right for Minnesota to build some padding on their lead.
Minnesota and Texas are a toss-up for Friday’s game two of the series with both squads listed at -110. The Twins are actually one of the better road squads in the majors, posting a 36-22 record going away in ’19.
Minnesota has a question mark about who will start Friday’s game. As of publishing time Thursday night, Rocco Baldelli had not yet named who would be on the hill.
Jake Odorizzi had his regular start pushed back and could get the nod in this one. The right-hander seems to have regained his all-star form, allowing just 2ER total in his last 3 starts (17.1 IP). Odorizzi hasn’t faced Texas yet this season.
The Rangers return home for this 4-game series that started on Thursday night. Texas had spent the 9 games prior on the road, going just 3-6 over that span. The Rangers are just .500 overall on the season, but have been tough at Globe Life with a 35-22 record.
The Rangers have won 4 straight at home heading into Thursday night’s series opener with the Twins. Texas is hoping that getting back to familiar surroundings helps their offense as they were held to 2 runs or less in 6 of the previous 9 games which were all on the road.
The reason the Rangers are a toss-up against 1st place Minnesota on Friday is mainly because it’s Mike Minor’s turn in the rotation.Minor seems to have gotten back in the groove after 4+ ER allowed in four straight starts. The lefty hasn’t surrendered a single run in his last two outings.

Free Minnesota Twins vs. Texas Rangers MLB Prediction:
Minnesota has a tough one up against Minor in this start. If it indeed is Odorizzi on the hill for the Twins, this contest should be on the lower scoring side despite it featuring two offenses that can put up some runs.
