Twins vs Orioles Betting Prediction

There is going to be no shortage of scoring in this game. Tyler Wells gave up four runs in his last start, while Lopez gave up five. The Orioles' offense especially has been elite, and they are going to have no issue running up the score here. Both starting pitchers are going to be chased early and that will be the difference here as this game ends up going over the total. This is one of the strong plays on the board.
