What the hell are the Baltimore Orioles doing right now? The Orioles are picking a bad time to shit the bed as they have now lost 4 of the last 6 games. Baltimore is still fighting for the last wild card slot in the American League, only two games ahead of the Tigers. The Orioles will try to avoid a four game sweep by the Redsox tonight.
David Price is on the mound for the Boston Redsox and is making his 33rd start for the Redsox this year. He's 16-8 with a 3.91 ERA and a low 1.17 WHIP plus 217 strikeouts over 211.2 innings. Price is still unbeaten in his last eight starts. He is 5-0 with a 3.05 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP over 56 innings of work pitching at Camden Yards.
Chris Tillman with take the mound for the Orioles and will be making his 29th start of the year. He's 16-6 with a 3.72 ERA and a 1.239 WHIP over 164.2 innings. Tillman will be coming off a 5-2 loss against the Tampa Bay Rays this past weekend. Chris only threw for 5.2 innings, allowing three runs on four hits before getting yanked out.
My systems has this game handicapped at 7 runs and I see tremendous value in betting this total under. Both pitchers are respectfully their team's top (ace) pitcher and this total set by the oddsmakers seems to be a mistake. Look for a close game between these two aces as runs will be very scarce tonight.
Under is 9-2 in Tillmans last 11 starts overall.
The Total has gone UNDER in 5 of Baltimore's last 5 games
Redsox 4 Orioles 3
Best of luck!
