Twins vs. Tigers Prediction

I’m on the over here. I just don’t trust this pitching matchup whatsoever as Flaherty looked brutal getting shelled last start, while the same could be said for Bailey Ober who has had a tendency to hang his pitches in the zone and have opposing teams take advantage. All in all, I think we have some offensive fireworks brewing here and I think the over cashes with relative ease. I wouldn’t be surprised if we hit the over in the first five innings either.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
