MLB: New York Yankees at Tampa Bay Rays Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The New York Yankees have had a tough time putting runs on the board since the All-Star break and will look to ignite their offense at home vs. the Minnesota Twins on Monday.

Minnesota Twins vs. New York Yankees (-175, 8)

Twins starter Chris Archer has not gone beyond five innings in any of his 23 starts this season. Throughout his 2022 road starts, he’s post a 4.87 ERA with 1.6 home runs per nine innings while is issuing 4.2 walks per nine innings.

The Yankees counter with Jameson Taillon, who was tagged for at least three runs in four of his six August starts. Over his last 13 starts, he has a 5.35 ERA in 65 1/3 innings of work and has allowed 15 home runs.

The Yankees support Taillon with an offense that leads the league with 1.7 home runs and five runs scored per game at home — the most of any American League team.

On the road, the Twins as a collective have had pitching woes. Only the Kansas City Royals have allowed more runs on the road this season. Minnesota has allowed at least four runs in seven of the last eight road games.

The over has cashed in seven of Taillon’s last 10 starts, and the Twins’ poor road pitching will continue the trend.
