Pick on the Total of Orioles-Twins for Saturday

VSiN’s Greg Peterson goes over the best betting options for Saturday’s matchup between the Baltimore Orioles and Minnesota Twins.

The Baltimore Orioles have the best run line record in baseball this season thanks in large part to a bullpen that entered their current series with the Minnesota Twins third in the league in ERA. They will look to hold down the Twins in Minneapolis on Saturday.

The Orioles have four different relievers with at least 20 appearances that have an ERA below 2.00, and many will likely see action on Saturday, given starter Jordan Lyles’ struggles.

Lyles has a 2.92 ERA at home compared to a 6.47 ERA on the road, with all 11 of his home runs allowed coming on the road.

Sonny Gray gets the start and will look to keep his strong 2022 going, allowing two runs or fewer in nine of his 10 starts this season and just four earned runs in his last five starts.

The Orioles have scored three runs or fewer in four of their last five games. They entered Friday averaging 4.1 runs per game, which ranks 22nd the league.

With the Twins having allowed three runs or fewer in eight of their last 10 games, Saturday sets up for another low-scoring affair.
