MLB Free Pick | Athletics at Twins
We have a great Sunday of sports action ahead of us. As I write I am watching the final round of The Open, and while none of our guys are in contention, it’s been great golf to watch on a great course, with an Irishman leading the pack. Manny Pacquiao took care of Thurman last night, 10 years his senior and football is right around the corner! What a time to be a sports fan.

My pick today comes from the Twin Cities when the Minnesota Twins host the Oakland Athletics. I watched yesterday’s game in this series, and it was like a playoff game. Great atmosphere, everyone was hustling on every play and A’s fans were rewarded with a 9th inning comeback for the win.
Two pitchers that have been pitching well lately take the mound. For the Twins, Michael Pineda has allowed 3 or fewer earned runs in all but one if his last 12 starts, and has allowed only 1 earned run in 5 of his last 6 starts.
A’s starter Daniel Mengden has always showed he has the goods to be a quality Major League starter, but inconsistency and lack of control has slowed his progression. However, he’s won his last 4 starts, and has held opponents to 3 or few earned runs in 6 of his 9 starts this season.
These two have played to the UNDER in 8 of their last 10. The UNDER is 8-1 in the Twins last 9 and is 9-4 in the A’s last 13. On top of that, the UNDER is 6-0 in the last 6 when Oakland plays Minnesota at Target Field. I like the A’s as the dog here at +121, but my official pick is the UNDER.
MLB Free Pick: Oakland Athletics @ Minnesota Twins UNDER 10.5
