The NL Central leading Twins look to hold off overtures from the White Sox and Guardians by taking care of business against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Can Minnesota keep up their fine play with Dylan Bundy on the mound? The Twins right hander has struggled, but will be facing a poor offense in the D-Backs. Can Bundy find his form on the road, or will Arizona see Luke Weaver build on a fine, but limited first start last time out.

Here are the odds for Saturday's showdown with odds courtesy of WynnBET Sportsbook:

Twins vs. Diamondbacks Prediction and Pick

It may not be pretty, but I'm going to look to the under in this one. While Bundy may have his troubles this season, he has an ERA of 5.87, but there is cause for optimism. He has a FIP of 5.07 and his walk rate is down about one per 9 innings compared to last season. He is getting a ton of unlucky variance in the field, but with less trouble on the base paths he can see his numbers take a dip.

Arizona is not a good hitting team by any means, 25th this month in batting average, and this can be a welcome sight for Bundy to take advantage of a lineup that is struggling to string hits together.

On the other side, Weaver is making his second start of the season so the sample size is small, but he is a control pitcher that does a good job of limiting mistakes. He has a low home run rate allowed and doesn't walk many batters.

I'm going to trust Bundy to avoid the blowups and for Weaver to find his stride after just 3.2 innings in his first start. At 9.5, I'm looking at the under with bettors counting on both pitchers to fail but both being in good positions.
