Twins vs Wiz 5/18/24 Pick: LG Twins

The Wiz are putting a reliever on the mound to start this game. Normally that would not pose a problem, but in this game the reliever they are putting out has been hit hard on the year and we do not see that changing in this game here. The Twins offense is very potent and is one that can come alive when it has to and that is what we see happening in this game here.
