Orioles at Angels picks and predictions


Orioles 5 Angels 4


Tuesday’s Orioles-Angels match-up made for a tepid play — partial-unit and all on the home nine. Wednesday’s tilt figures as a mirror opposite — a very slight lean toward the visitors.

Sandoval is not in good form of late. He’s waked nearly 7 batters per 9 over his last 6 starts and he makes this start on 4 days of rest which is not exactly his preferred interval (.945 OPS allowed in 10 career starts on 4 days of rest).

Gibson’s recent clunkers have been fueled by way-out-of-bounds rates around the margins (.360 BABIP in his last 5 starts for example).

This figures as a way to get the better club at a slight discount. But again it’s a slight discount BACK THE ORIOLES (-140) on a partial-unit play.

Run line/Against the spread

In relative return the better Baltimore play is the one above PASS.


As with Tuesday’s affair the runs scored vs. expected swing both ways with these clubs. There are reasons both dinging and supporting both sides of this total PASS.
