Orioles a disaster on the road
The Orioles are coming off a series loss at Boston this weekend and they have dropped four of their last five overall. Baltimore is now 14-32 overall and 4-19 on the road. The Orioles are putting up 4.04 runs per game on offense while allowing 5.52 per contest on defense.
Andrew Cashner gets the start for the Orioles this evening. He has started nine games this season and has a 1-5 record with a 4.83 ERA and a 1.49 WHIP. He has pitched 50.1 innings this season and has 46 strikeouts with 24 walks.
White Sox seek 3-game win streak
Chicago is coming off back-to-back wins at home over the Texas Rangers and they have won three of their last four. The White Sox are now 13-30 overall and 6-16 at home. Chicago is averaging 3.86 runs per game this season while allowing 5.60 runs per contest.
Hector Santiago gets the start for the White Sox today. He has appeared in 12 games this season, starting three of them. He has just a 0-1 record with a 5.29 ERA and a 1.58 WHIP. Santiago has pitched a total of 32.1 innings and has 27 strikeouts with 19 walks.
MLB Betting Trends
Baltimore is just 1-6 in Cashner’s last seven starts and they are also 0-6 in their last six Monday games. The Orioles have also lost 18 of their last 24 series openers.
The White Sox are just 7-19 in Santiago’s last 26 starts and 4-10 in his last 14 home starts. They also are 4-11 in their last 15 games against AL East opponents.
The White Sox are picking up a little momentum right now, by beating the Rangers in three of four. They face a similar caliber team tonight in Baltimore, who has struggled at the plate and has really poor pitching. I think the White Sox will be able to keep things going and pick up another win over the Orioles tonight.
The Pick: Chicago White Sox -105
