Jose Berrios vs. Dylan Cease
Minnesota Twins DFS Spin
Josh Donaldson homered on Sunday in a win over the Indians. Donaldson extended the Twins' lead to 6-3 with a solo shot off Triston McKenzie in the fifth. It was the third homer of the day off McKenzie for Minnesota, and the fourth of the season for the former MVP. While Donaldson is still hitting just .226 on the year, he does have a .356 OPS and .491 slugging percentage. As long as he's healthy, he should be a solid fantasy performer down the stretch.
Chicago White Sox DFS Spin
Eloy Jimenez crushed his 13th home run of the season on Sunday, powering the White Sox to a 5-2 victory over the Tigers. Jimenez victimized Tigers' starter Spencer Turnbull for a solo shot in the third inning to give the White Sox a 2-1 lead that they would never relinquish. He also singled in the game, finishing the afternoon 2-for-4 to raise his season slash to .301/.337/.590 to go along with 13 long balls and 36 RBI.
Twins vs. White Sox Betting Prediction
Both of these teams are playing well, but I’m going to take the plus odds tonight in Chicago. The White Sox have won 12 of their last 13 home games, are 4-0 in their last four games when facing a right-handed starter and are 7-1 in their last eight home games when facing a right-handed starter. The Twins, meanwhile, are just 2-6 in their last eight road games and are 1-4 in their last five games on the road when facing a right-handed starter. With the way this White Sox team slugs, they’re never out of a game. With both teams entering play tonight with 30 wins apiece, this is a big series for Chicago and I like the Sox to come out of the gates hot.
