Baltimore is 6-1 in their last 7 games following a loss and 5-1 in their last 6 games against the AL Central. The under is 8-2 in Baltimore’s last 10 games. Minnesota is 6-2 in their last 8 Friday games and 10-3 in their last 13 games following a loss. The over is 5-1-1 in Minnesota’s last 7 Friday games. Baltimore is 17-35 in these two teams last 52 head to head meetings.

Minnesota comes into this game with a one game lead in the AL Central, but Cleveland is hot on their trail. Baltimore is seven games below .500 and is traveling from the West Coast. Spenser Watkins was very good in his last starting against the White Sox, where he allowed 0 earned runs over five innings for the Orioles. For the Twins, Joe Ryan has allowed 10 runs in his last 15.2 innings. I like the under in this game between two pitchers that have pitched decently well in their last starts.
