MLB Betting Trends
The Orioles are just 1-10 in their last 11 against a losing team and 1-6 in their last seven against AL Central opponents.
The Twins are 7-1 in their last eight against AL East opponents and they have won five straight at home.
Odorizzi has been a little up-and-down this year, but he has been on the stronger side in his last two starts and gets to face one of the worst lineups in baseball today. Baltimore is already 40 games below .500 and we are just past the halfway mark of the season. That’s awful. Cobb doesn’t appear to have the stuff to right the Baltimore ship either. Look for another Baltimore loss today.
The Pick: Minnesota Twins -170
