The Baltimore Orioles visit Target Field in Minnesota for a three game series with the Twins. The Twins haven’t had much luck versus the Orioles so far this season losing all 3 meetings but last year they swept the season series winning all 7 games.
Head to Head Trends
Orioles are 0-5 in the last 5 meetings in Minnesota.
Under is 6-0 in the last 6 meetings.
Minnesota Twins (-110)
The Minnesota twins are last in the American League Central with an 8-23 record which is also good for last place in the entire American League. The Twins haven’t really been doing anything great this season. They are batting just .234 as a team and averaging 3.42 runs per game and their pitching is probably even worse allowing 5.16 runs per game.
Starting for the Twins in this one is rookie Jose Berrios who is 1-1 with a 6.75 ERA in 2 starts this season. Berrios had a rough outing in his first start giving up 5 runs in 4 innings of work and his second outing was a bit better allowing just 2 earned runs in 5.1 inning of work while striking out 8 but he also walked 5.
Minnesota Twins Trends
Twins are 8-26 in their last 34 overall.
Twins are 1-12 in their last 13 after scoring 2 runs or less in their previous game.
Baltimore Orioles (+100)
The Baltimore Orioles are 1st in the American league East with a 18-12 record just a half game up on the 2nd place Boston Red Sox. The Orioles were kind of struggling there for a few games especially with the bats but they broke out of their slump in a big way yesterday scoring 11 runs which included 7 homeruns.
On the hill for the Orioles today is Tyler Wilson who is 1-1 with a 3.04 ERA in 3 starts this season. Wilson started the season in the bullpen where he did a solid enough job. In his 3 games as a started he wasn’t flashy but he kept the Orioles in the game and let their offense take care of business.
Baltimore Orioles Trends
Orioles are 4-1 in Wilsons last 5 starts.
Orioles are 15-7 in their last 22 games following a win.
I’m going with the Baltimore Orioles over the Twins in this one. The Orioles are obviously the better team overall and it looks like their offense is back crushing homeruns again so it might a long day for Berrios and the Twins today.
Free Pick: Baltimore Orioles +100
