Orioles fall again

The Orioles lost their second straight to Minnesota and fourth straight overall on Friday in a 6-2 loss to the Twins. Baltimore is now 24-63 overall and 12-34 on the road. The Orioles are putting up just 3.59 runs per game while giving up 5.13 per contest.

Kevin Gausman takes the mound for Baltimore this afternoon. He is 4-6 through 17 starts with a 4.05 ERA and a 1.32 WHIP. He has pitched a total of 102.0 innings in 2018 and has 90 strikeouts with 25 walks.

Twins win first two

After a 6-game losing streak, Minnesota has managed to take the first two games in this series, winning 5-2 on Thursday and 6-2 on Friday. The Twins are now 37-48 on the season and 22-20 at home. Minnesota is putting up 4.25 runs per game this season while giving up 4.61 per game.

Kyle Gibson gets the start for the Twins today. He has started 17 games this year and has a 2-6 record with a 3.58 ERA and a 1.28 WHIP. Gibson has pitched a total of 100.2 innings this year and has 96 strikeouts with 42 walks.

MLB Betting Trends

Baltimore

The Orioles are 5-22 in their last 27 Game 3’s and they are 1-8 in their last 9 games against a team with a losing record. They also have lost eight of Gausman’s last nine starts.

Minnesota

The Twins have won five of their last six against AL East opponents and nine of their last 13 home games against a right-handed starter.

Prediction:

Gibson has pitched pretty well this season, but hasn’t had a lot of run support. He has allowed two runs or less in five of his last seven starts and I think he should have another good outing today against this struggling Baltimore team. I don’t see the Orioles doing well at the plate and the Twins should be able to grind out runs against Gausman.

 

The Pick: Minnesota Twins -145
