Past doesn’t always predict present unless it is the Yankees vs. the Twins. Minnesota is in a bad spot trying to win a game at home.
Over two games the Twins have been outscored 18-6. I am not sure a change of venue is enough to change their fate.
New York Yankees
New York took care of business at home in games 1 and 2. They were able to really put a hurt on the Twins even though Gary Sanchez and Giancarlo Stanton did not get a hit.
Not surprisingly it is DJ Lemahieu who is leading the way. He is tied for the team lead with a homer and four RBIs. The Yankees have been getting contributions throughout the lineup.
Luis Severino was hurt most of the season. With the Yankees doing so well there was no need to rush him back and he has looked sharp over a few innings in September. The bullpen is in great shape to back him up no matter how deep into the game he goes.
Minnesota is facing elimination and they have their biggest winner on the hill in Jake Odorizzi. He was relatively sharp down the stretch, not giving up more than three runs in any September start.
If Minnesota is going to extend the series they are going to have to score more than they have in the first couple of games. They averaged more than 5 runs per game but have yet to reach that total in the series.
The Twins set a record with 307 homers during the regular season. The simple math is 1.9 per game. They are below that pace and need to probably hit a few dingers if they are going to extend the series.
The bullpen is not as strong as New York’s and all of the Yankees homers against have come against relievers. This group might be better if they were pitching with a lead though.

Free New York Yankees vs. Minnesota Twins MLB Prediction:
This one probably comes down to the effectiveness of the starters. Minnesota has to get off to a good start and the only way they can is for Odorizzi to be sharp
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Minnesota ML
I think Severino might get touched for some runs. He has not been as sharp during the playoffs over his short career. After that New York could easily “punt” this one given their series lead.
