PUBLIC BETTING INFORMATION

The public betting for this game is behind the Twins. Minnesota is getting 54 percent of the wagers as a slight underdog against the Orioles today.

KEY INJURIES

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.

BETTING STRATEGIES

Baltimore won the first game of the series on Thursday, 3-2. However, Minnesota bounced back on Saturday with a 6-2 victory. The Twins got a great start from Kyle Gibson, who pitch six no-hit innings to lead Minnesota to the win. Andrew Cashner gave up four runs over five innings for the Orioles.

Miguel Sano, Jason Castro and Max Kepler each had a home run at the plate to lead the Twins on Saturday. Tim Beckham drove in the lone two runs for the Orioles on a two-run home run in the ninth inning.

The Twins got a surprising outing from Gibson on Saturday and I think they can get a similar outing from Berrios today. Berrios showed an ability to have strong outings last year. He doesn’t get deep into games, but he can give the Twins a start they need to win. Gausman had a shaky 2017 and I expect he will allow a handful of runs today.
