Minnesota Twins Fantasy Spin
Eddie Rosario went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer while scoring two runs in a victory over the Orioles in game two of a doubleheader. After hitting two homers in game one of the doubleheader, Rosario took Alex Cobb deep for his fifth homer in three games and ninth on the season. He's slugging .743 on the season and is hitting .300 while driving in 20 runs. An exceptional start to the season for the 27-year-old outfielder.
Baltimore Orioles Fantasy Spin
Renato Nunez went 3-for-4 with two homers and three RBI and three runs scored in a loss to the Twins on Saturday in game two of a doubleheader. Nunez was a bright spot for the Orioles in the 16-7 loss. He hit a two-run shot off of Martin Perez, and he homered again off of Fernando Romero a few innings later. Nunez has enjoyed a solid start to his first full season of MLB action with a .304 average and .877 OPS. He's likely to hit in the middle of the Baltimore lineup this year, but it's still hard to envision much fantasy success in 2019.
MLB Betting Trends
The Twins are 6-1 in their last seven games played on Sunday.
The Orioles have lost 41 of their last 58 games when playing the third game of a series.
Minnesota starter Kyle Gibson is a below-average strikeout pitcher that is struggling with walks and allowing plenty of hard contact. Baltimore doesn’t posses the best pop, although the Orioles also rank in the bottom third of the league in terms of strikeout percentage against right-handed pitching. On the other side is Baltimore starter Dylan Bundy, who will face a Minnesota team that scored 22 runs the Saturday’s double header. The Twins also hit 11 home runs in those two teams and Bundy has allowed seven long balls in just 17 1/3 innings already. The wind blowing out certainly factored in to yesterday’s scores but even without the wind, I see today being high-scoring as well between these two teams.
The Pick: Twins/Orioles OVER 9.5
