Orioles a mess

The Orioles have lost 10 of their last 11 games after losing the series opener on Thursday, 5-2. Baltimore is now 24-62 overall and 12-33 on the road. The Orioles are putting up just 3.60 runs per game while giving up 5.12 per contest.

Dylan Bundy is getting the start for the Orioles this evening. He has a 6-7 record through 16 starts with a 3.75 ERA and a 1.21 WHIP. Bundy has pitched a total of 96.0 innings and has 108 strikeouts with 29 walks.

Twins end skid

Minnesota put an end to a 6-game losing streak on Thursday with the 5-2 win over the Orioles. The Twins are now 36-48 on the season and 21-20 at home. Minnesota is putting up 4.23 runs per game this season while giving up 4.64 per game.

Lance Lynn gets the start for the Twins on Friday night. He has started 16 games and has a 5-7 record with a 5.49 ERA and a 1.68 WHIP. Lynn has pitched a total of 80.1 innings and has 82 strikeouts with 50 walks.

MLB Betting Trends

Baltimore

The Orioles are 1-7 in their last 8 against losing teams, but they have won Bundy’s last four starts against a losing team.

Minnesota

The Twins are 3-8 in their last 11 games against a right-handed starter. They also have lost five of their last seven Friday games.

Prediction:

The Orioles are not a good team, but Bundy has been one of the few bright spots. Over his last four starts, he has given up six runs over 27.1 innings. I think he can have another good start against the Twins this evening. Lynn has struggled in recent starts, including giving up seven runs in 1.2 innings to the Cubs on Sunday. I think this is a game that the Orioles can win.

 

The Pick: Baltimore Orioles +120
