Baltimore at Minnesota

5 units on Minnesota -121 (moneyline) (risk 5 to return 5)  RESULT: LOSS

Garrett Olson of Baltimore are heading in opposite directions. With a 4.03 ERA Olson has been respectable on the season, but he is still a career 5.76 ERA pitcher and his close to 5 ERA over his last three games is approaching more of the norm of what he has displayed in his short career. Scott Baker has been on the rise as he has pitched to a 3.77 ERA in his last three starts, and over his career his ERA is a full run ahead of Olson's. Baker has pinpoint control walking just five in 33 innings of work and at the same time he has allowed less hits than innings pitched. Minnesota is on a surge winning seven of their last 10 games. While after a great start Baltimore is in the basement in the AL East. Short odds and pitching advantage as well as overall advantage is handed to the Twins for this one.
