Minnesota at Baltimore
Sunday 07/25 01:35 PM Eastern
3 units on Baltimore +1.5 runs -150 (runline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: LOSS
No one wants a piece of the hapless Orioles. But this is a good place to back them. Minnesota is a losing team on the road that struggles to score (4.3 runs per game). They are starting Kevin Slowey who, despite a good record, owns a 6.27 road ERA. In his last three starts he has averaged just 5.0 innings and a 7.80 ERA. Jake Arrieta owns a winning record, which says a lot given the team for which he plays. In his last three starts, he's posted a 3.50 ERA. While Baltimore may not win this game, they have a shot and should at least keep it close. I like the O's +1.5 runs.
