Baltimore Orioles Fantasy Spin
Renato Nunez went 2-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored during a 4-3 win over the White Sox on Wednesday. He ripped a double that plated Dwight Smith Jr. in the first inning, then came around to score on a knock by Rio Ruiz. Nunez is hitting at an All Star level through 25 games, slashing .301/.356/.538 with six home runs, 18 RBI and 16 runs scored. This could be a breakout season in the making for the 25-year-old corner infielder.
Minnesota Twins Fantasy Spin
Marwin Gonzalez finished 0-for-3 on Wednesday, dropping his average to .169. Gonzalez has just four RBI and four runs scored through 19 games. One would think he'd still have his defense and versatility working for him, but the Twins haven't given him a start anywhere other than third base this year and he's been just average there. It shouldn't last, but he's been one of the AL's least valuable players to date.
MLB Betting Trends
The Orioles are 4-1 in Alex Cobb’s last five road starts but are just 8-22 in his last 30 outings.
The Twins have won 19 of their last 28 games overall and are 35-16 in their last 51 home games.
The over is 4-1 in the last five meetings between these two teams and 5-2 in the Twins’ last seven games overall. The over has also been profitable when Cobb starts for the Orioles. In his last six outings, the over is 6-1. In his last four divisional outings, the over is 4-1. With how hot the Twins’ bats have been over the last week, the over is the best play on the board in this matchup.
The Pick: Orioles/Twins OVER 9.5
