MLB Picks for 8/29/22
7:40 PM EST
Red Sox/Twins Over 8.5 runs ( loss )
Boston and Minnesota are on the outside of the playoff picture right now. Boston would need a miracle run to end the season to grab a spot, and Minnesota has their eyes on the AL Central as they are two games behind the first-place Guardians. The Red Sox problem is not the offense but its defense and pitching. Dylan Bundy is an average pitcher with not much strikeout power this year. Look for the Red Sox to get to him early for a few runs. Brayan Bello only has 22 innings of major league work and, in those innings, has shown nothing to prove he will not get beat up by the Twins. Look for a high-scoring game. Take the Over.
