Twins Look to End Skid

The Twins have lost two games in a row and now they are going to look to end their skid. On Thursday the Twins were able to tie it up in the bottom of the 9th against the Tampa Bay Rays, but in the 10th inning they couldn’t score any runs and they ended up losing.

The offense is ranked 10th in the league while the pitching is ranked 20th. Getting the start for the Twins will be Chris Paddack who sits wit ha 5-33 record and an ERA of 5.25.

A’s Fall Just Short

  • The Athletics have covered the run line in seven of their last eight home games against teams that held a winning record.
  • The Twins have failed to cover the run line in each of their last six games as favorites against American League opponents following a loss.

Minnesota Twins vs Oakland Athletics Prediction

Paddack was blown up in his last start and that is going to continue to be a problem again here. In his last start he gave up five runs and the A’s are going ot run up the score. Estes has also been a problem this season and in his last start he gave up six runs. Both offenses are going to jump all over the batting early, and that is going ot be the difference here. Back the over to cash with ease. 

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