Total: -105/+8½ Over
Twins RH Liam Hendriks (1-2, 5.13 ERA) vs. Astros RH Jordan Lyles (6-7, 5.12)
Lyles the Astros hurler does not seem to like pitching in the afternoons as is evident by a 3-14 record in day games. The righty has yielded 142 hits over 123 innings this season, and looks like he easily could get crushed again today vs a Minnesota Twins side that has exploded for 19 runs and 29 hits over their last two games.Over is 5-0 in Lyles' last 5 starts with the total set at 7.0-8.5. Meanwhile Houston has looked capable on offense of late, scoring 12 runs already in this series.Hendricks the Twins starter who is 2-12 with a 5.60 ERA in 25 starts in the Majors , and despite of a decent start last time out will give Astros batters more opportunties to score runs.Over is 6-0-1 in Hendriks' last 7 starts following a Quality Start in his last appearance.
