Minnesota Twins DFS SPIN
Sonny Gray tossed seven shutout innings on Wednesday in a no-decision against the Guardians. Gray struck out five and allowed just four baserunners over seven stellar frames, but the Twins’ bullpen was unable to lock down the victory. The 33-year-old right-hander will carry a solid 2.92 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 156/51 K/BB ratio across 157 innings (27 starts) into a rematch on Tuesday against the Guardians in Cleveland.
Texas Rangers DFS SPIN
Corey Seager went 2-for-4 with a solo homer on Wednesday in the Rangers’ extra-inning loss to the Mets. Seager took Mets starter Denyi Reyes deep in the fourth inning for his 25th long ball of the season. He’s homered 10 times since the start of August and has eclipsed the 25-homer mark for the second straight season since signing with the Rangers.

Twins vs. Rangers MLB BETTING PREDICTION
Ryan is 9-8 with a 4.33 ERA on the season and is 0-1 with a 2.38 ERA in two previous starts versus the Rangers. He did not factor into the decision last Saturday pitching five innings of one-run ball with seven strikeouts. Scherzer, meanwhile, is 12-5 with a 3.71 ERA and did not receive a decision last Saturday against this same Minnesota team after allowing two runs with 10 strikeouts over seven innings. He’s 3-1 with a 2.64 ERA in his first five starts, spanning 30 2/3 innings since being acquired from the Mets at the deadline. Give me the Rangers.
