Twins vs. Orioles odds, prediction, line: 2022 MLB picks, Saturday, July 2 best bets from proven model

The Minnesota Twins host the Baltimore Orioles in a matinee matchup on Saturday. Minnesota and Baltimore face off in the second contest of a three-game weekend set at Target Field. Baltimore is vastly improved this season, though the Orioles enter on a three-game losing skid. Minnesota won the series opener in walk-off fashion, improving to 44-36 this season.

A reaction to Rudy Gobert being traded to the Timberwolves

The Utah Jazz changed once Rudy Gobert stepped onto the floor. Just like all other dominant players, he changed the game around him, as well as what everyone else was doing on the court. Players would actively avoid driving to the rim to avoid his incredible length. But Gobert wasn’t just tall and long, he was athletic too. His ability to make that second jump with lightning quickness allowed him to contest multiple shots on single possessions. When you combined that with his competitiveness, it’s no surprise he’s won 3 DPOY awards. It really should be 4, although there’s no question he’ll earn another in Minnesota.
