MLB Betting Trends

Baltimore

The Orioles are just 5-18 in their last 23 games following a win. They also are 1-8 in Gausman’s last nine starts against AL Central opponents.

Chicago

The White Sox have won five of Shield’s last seven starts against a losing team. They also have won five of his last seven starts on four days of rest.

Prediction:

Neither team is very trustworthy, but I have a hard time seeing the Orioles string together wins on the road. The Orioles don’t have bullpen that you can trust. While the Sox really don’t either, I am going to trust the home team in a battle of awful teams. I think Chicago can bounce back.

 

The Pick: Chicago White Sox +110
