Minnesota Twins at New York Yankees Prediction

Heading into Monday’s matchup between Minnesota and New York, the Yankees are the favorites on the money line. Even though both the Twins and Yankees picked up wins yesterday, they both had disappointing weekends overall. Look for New York to be the team to make it 2 in a row, as they should have no problem breaking loose vs Chris Archer. I like New York on the money line.
