Shane’s Free Pick
Ober has been lights out in his first two starts and he’s going to lockdown again in this game. Ober is going to hold the Guardians to only a run or two and that is going to be the difference as the Twinsa re going to find success. Back the Twins on the money line. This game is also going to be lower scoring and the under is going to cash.
