The Houston Astros have been an unstoppable force, with them winning seven games in a row for their previous match. The Minnesota Twins are also following suit, with them having a three-win streak. This match will determine which team will continue their streak.
The Astros are coming in strong with their multiple wins in the previous games, with the only exception of losing against the Toronto Blue Jays a while back. However, their injury list will play part in their chances of winning this match, with currently three players in IL as of May.
The Twins' winning streak is also impressive, making them rise again after a recent defeat against the Baltimore Orioles. The injury list will also determine whether the Twins will be able to play effectively, having 6 players for May.
Astros vs Twins
Why bet on Astros?
✅ Placed third with 18 wins and 11 losses while being on a 7 winning streak
✅ Amazing roster of hitters namely Yordan Alvarez, Jeremy Pena, and Alex Bregman
✅ Great squad of pitchers including Justin Verlander
Why bet on Twins?
✅ Twins have a 1.05 whip against the Astros in the pitching game
✅ Gary Sanchez has a hitting average of 0.200
✅ Twins have won 2 out of their 5 games
The Houston Astros is looking to continue their winning streak with their solid lineup of magnificent hitters like Yordan Alvarez who has an OPS of .957. However, they need to be careful because the Twins also have great and even better players in their set such as Byron Buxton and Max Kepler that can dominate the match if they're not careful.
They would also need to keep in mind their injury list. For May, there are three players on the injury list with Lance McCullers Jr. and Taylor Jones having to be off the field for around 60 days.
The Minnesota Twins placed comparatively lower than the Astros when compared side by side. But a few of their players have proven to have better stats, like hitter Byron Buxton with an OPS of 1.064 and pitcher Joe Ryan with an ERA of 1.63.
If they somehow manage to effectively utilize their star players, they might have a chance to win and end the Astros' win streak. But they will also need to be careful in taking care of their massive player hole due to the injury list. As of May, there are 6 players in IL, with Luis Arraez and Dylan Bundy being out of the lineup due to testing positive for COVID-19.
