Oakland Athletics vs Minnesota Twins Prediction

I’m not excited to lay juice with Bailey Ober, who can be hit or miss, especially on the road. However, the Twins are easily the better team over the Oakland Athletics, and it’s not like JP Sears is lighting the world on fire this season. These are games the Twins need to take advantage of as they hope to stay in the thick of the wild card race. Not my favorite game on the Saturday card, but I’ll side with the Twins because they’re the better team no matter how you slice it.
