Twins vs Orioles Prediction

Minnesota has been pretty competitive over their last six games, but they are only hitting .194 as a team. The Twins have had solid pitching to begin the season, but their offense has been brutal. Baltimore looked pretty rough over the weekend against Milwaukee, but their offense is miles ahead of where Minnesota is. The Orioles are starting Grayson Rodriguez, who has allowed five earned runs over 18.0 innings pitched in three starts. The Twins are going with Chris Paddack, who has allowed four earned runs and 12 hits over 8.2 innings in two starts. Paddack hasn’t allowed many runs, but he has allowed a bunch of hits and hasn’t made it through five innings yet. I don’t have faith in this Minnesota offense to keep pace with Baltimore, especially with Paddack on the mound for the Twins. Take the Orioles -1.5 here. 

David’s Pick Orioles -1.5
