A go-ahead single by Mitch Garver in the top of the 12th inning sent Minnesota to a 4-3 victory Wednesday night at Oakland.

MLB Betting Trends

Minnesota

The Twins are 6-1 in the last seven Berrios road starts. Minnesota is 11-3 in its last 14 games versus the AL West.

Oakland

The Athletics are 4-1 in their last five games overall. Oakland is 6-2 in the last eight meetings. 

Prediction:

The starting pitching matchup is enough to have me seriously leaning towards Minnesota. Berrios has been solid on the road and pretty consistent all season long. As for Anderson, he wasn't very good in the minor leagues and that has translated to not fooling many bats at the MLB level. Look for the Twins to barrel him up and ride Berrios to the victory.
