Orioles falling apart
Baltimore is currently on a six-game losing streak after being swept at Boston and at Detroit over the last week. Baltimore is now 5-14 overall and just 2-4 at home. The orioles are scoring just 3.47 runs per game this season while allowing 5.74 per contest.
Bundy is 0-2 through four starts this season. He has 31 strikeouts with seven walks and just a 1.40 ERA and 1.09 WHIP. Bundy has had three unearned runs scored and the Orioles haven’t scored more than three runs for him in any start this year.
Indians looking for consistency
Cleveland has dropped two of its last three after having gone on a five-game win streak. The Indians have been hot-and-cold this season, getting out to a 9-7 start with a 3-5 mark on the road. Cleveland is allowing only 3.00 runs per game while scoring just 3.50 per contest.
Trevor Bauer is making his fourth start of the season. He is 1-1 through three starts despite not allowing more than two runs in a single outing. He has 21 strikeouts with seven walks this season to go along with a 1.10 WHIP and 2.25 ERA.
MLB Betting Trends
The Indians have won seven of Bauer’s last eight starts against AL East opponents and Cleveland has won 42 of its last 59 games against a right-handed starter.
The Orioles are just 8-28 in their last 36 games on grass and they are 1-6 in the last seven starts for Dylan Bundy.
The Orioles are a mess and while Bundy has pitched quite well, they can’t provide him with any run support. Cleveland isn’t hitting the ball a great deal, but they get great starting pitching and they have a great bullpen. That should allow them to edge the Orioles tonight.
The Pick: Cleveland Indians -115
