Orioles at Twins picks and predictions


Twins 4 Orioles 3


Minnesota is 25-15 as a home favorite this season and Ober is coming off arguably his best performance of the year. Baltimore is 13-13 as a road underdog.

While the Orioles have been one of the best road teams in the league and backing Ober to perform has been a consistent bet this season. The Twins are 8-5 with him on the mound and are 26-19 at home both reasons to bet them here despite the juice.

Take TWINS (-155).

Run line/Against the spread


With the last 2 games between these 2 teams ended with 1 run (a 2-1 Orioles win Sunday and a 1-0 Twins win Saturday) I’d prefer to take the side that’s at home with the better pitcher on the mound to straight-up win instead of playing with the run line odds.


BET UNDER 8.5 (+100).

The last 3 games between these two teams last weekend ended 2-1 0-1 and 1-8 with the Under cashing twice.

The Twins are 38-47-3 O/U on the season and have gone Under in 7 of their last 10 games. Minnesota is also 18-26 O/U following a win and 1-7 O/U in its last 8 games following a win.

While Baltimore is 44-36-6 O/U on the season Ober had its number last week and has consistently performed well. Take the UNDER 8.5 (+100) here.
