Cobb was able to put in a quality start in his last outing, but unfortunately was tagged with his 10th loss of the season in a 2-3 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies. He went 6.2 innings giving up four hits and three earned runs while he struck out five and walked three.
On the season Cobb owns a low strikeout (6.09 K/9) and walk (2.66 BB/9) rate, while he has struggled stranding base runners (61.5% LOB%) and containing the long ball (1.55 HR/9). Contributing to his high 6.53 ERA is a high .341 BABIP, so once that regresses we should see his ERA fall towards his 4.99 FIP.
Baltimore continues to play losing baseball as they could only win one of their six contests in the past week. During that span their lineup is slashing .230/.282/.375 to go with 15 extra-base hits and 15 RBI.
Odorizzi was alright in his last start, but was tagged with his sixth loss of the season in a 0-2 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers. He went five innings giving up four hits, two earned runs and one home run while he struck out nine and walked four.
In 90.2 innings of work, Odorizzi owns a solid strike out (9.63 K/9) rate, but has struggled giving up free bases (4.27 BB/9) and containing the long ball (1.49 HR/9). The end-result is an unspectacular 4.57 ERA and a slightly higher 4.71 FIP.
Minnesota continues to play losing baseball as they could only win two of their seven contests in the past week. During that span their lineup is slashing .263/.311/.410 to go with 20 extra-base hits and 35 RBI.

Free Baltimore Orioles vs. Minnesota Twins MLB Prediction: Minnesota takes down Baltimore at home
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Twins -1.5 & UNDER 9 Runs
Both pitchers have been prone to the long ball all season, but I’ll back the team who’s been hitting for average as they’ll have a better chance of making the most out of their home runs. Also Cobb owns a high 6.54 ERA on the road to go with a slash line of .316/.363/.538.
Baltimore has gone 0-5 ATS in their last five contests against Minnesota, while they have gone 17-29 ATS on the road this season.
I also like this total to stay under the threshold as both these pitchers are coming off of solid outings.
