2 units on Minnesota -170 (moneyline) (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: WIN
The Baltimore Orioles got a stellar pitching performance from Bradley Bergesen last night for the 2-0 win. I am expecting those fortunes to be short lived, however as they face a rejuvenated Francisco Liriano. Liriano is pitching like he was a few years ago, recovered from arm surgery, healthy and on top of his game with a 1.50 ERA, with the Twins winning all four of his starts, and allowed no runs three of them. The Twins may need to produce all the runs in this one to top the total, but that hasn't been likely in the past as vs. teams with a sub-.400 winning percentage have produced an UNDER mark of 41-18-5 in the last 64 vs. the Twins. These teams have also stayed UNDER the total in six of their last seven. I'm going with the Twins here and the UNDER gets the call as well. Note, this is for GAME 1.
