Bet on MLB for Saturday, March 31, 2018


The public betting for this game is behind the Twins. Minnesota is getting 58 percent of the wagers as a slight underdog against the Orioles today.


Minnesota doesn’t have anyone new listed on the injury report for today’s contest. The Orioles are playing without DH Mark Trumbo, who is dealing with a quad strain. He is expected to return in mid-April.


Baltimore opened the season on Thursday with a 3-2 victory against the Twins at home. The game went 11 innings before Adam Jones hit a walk-off home run. The long ball handed Fernando Rodney a loss in his debut with the Twins.

Dylan Bundy pitched seven innings for the Orioles and struck out seven while Jake Odorizzi pitched six innings and also had seven strikeouts. Manny Machado had two hits to lead Baltimore at the plate while Robbie Grossman drove in both runs for the Twins.

Gibson isn’t someone the Twins can really rely on. He puts on far too many baserunners and doesn’t have the ability to miss bats. Cashner is coming off a respectable season in Texas and now has a powerful lineup behind him, which should help him improve his win/loss record. I will jump on the Orioles as a small favorite at home today.
