Baltimore is 9-21 in their last 30 Sunday games and 0-4 in their last 4 games. The under is 10-2 in Baltimore’s last 12 games. Minnesota is 8-2 in their last 10 Sunday games and 5-1 in their last 6 home games. The under is 5-1 in Minnesota’s last 6 game three’s of a series. Baltimore is 16-36 in these two teams last 52 head to head meetings.
Baltimore has lost both games in this series after taking a lead into the bottom of the 9th. Baltimore will try to bounce back with Tyler Wells on the mound. Wells has pitched well recently, allowing two runs over his last 16 innings pitched. For the Twins, Devin Smeltzer has allowed one runs over his last 12 innings pitched. Both of these pitchers have been sharp in recent starts and I like the under here.
