Both of these AL teams look to get off to a good start after each missed the playoffs last season where the Orioles were 81-81 and the Twins were 83-79.
These 2 teams should be familiar with each other since they faced each other 6 times in Sprint Training where the Orioles were 12-15 and the Twins were 19-11.
The Twins have won their last 8 regular season games against the Orioles including winning their last 5 facing them in Baltimore.
The Twins ranked 12th in the Majors last season in runs scored and their offense was on fire in Spring Training where they scored the 2nd most runs in the Grapefruit League.
Minnesota has a deep lineup that last season had 8 players with at least 10 HR and 3 with at least 20 HR. However, no player had over 86 RB and they only ranked 26th in the league in team batting average.
Ervin Santana goes for the Twins in this game and last season he went 7-5 last season with an ERA of 4.00. He ended the season well going 4-1 with an ERA of only 1.88 in the month of September. Santana will be making the first opening day start of his career in this game.
The Twins are 4-0 in Santana’s last 4 starts on the road.
In their last Spring Training game the Twins played to a 8-8 tie with the Washington Nationals
The Orioles were 3 games under .500 on Spring Training and the main reason for that was their pitching. Their offense was more than legit scoring the most runs in the Grapefruit League, but they also allowed the most runs. They lost 4 of their 6 Spring Training games facing the Twins.
Last season Baltimore ranked 9th in the Majors in runs scored and they have a solid middle of the lineup with Manny Machado, Adam Jones, and Chris Davis, who led the AL in HR last season, but also had over 200 strikeouts.
Chris Tillman will be masking his 3rd straight opening day start and last season he went 11-11 with an ERA of 4.99. He had 3 straight seasons with an ERA below 4.00 before last season. Last season Tillman also had his worst strikeout rate (6.2 K/9) and walk rate (3.3 BB/9) since the 2010 season.
The Orioles have only won 1 of their last 6 games facing the Twins with Tillman on the hill. On top of that the Orioles are only 1-4 in his last 5 home starts.
In their last Spring Training game the Orioles beat the Philadelphia Phillies 8-7. While the Orioles had a losing record in Spring Training they did go 7-1-1 in their last 9 games.

Free Minnesota Twins vs. Baltimore Orioles MLB Prediction:
The Twins have dominated the Orioles in their last several games, but I think this game will be different. With the offense that the Orioles have they will get to Santana and get the opening day win.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Over the Number
In the last 5 games between these teams the Under record is 3-1-1, but don’t look for that trend to continue, as this game will not be a pitcher’s duel.
