Orioles edges in Game 2

The Orioles won the opener 3-2 on Monday, but then dropped a 3-2 decision to the Sox on Tuesday night. Baltimore is now 15-33 overall and 5-20 on the road. The Orioles are putting up 3.98 runs per game on offense while allowing 5.40 per contest on defense.

Alex Cobb is getting the start for the Orioles tonight. He has started seven games this season and has a 1-5 record with a 6.56 ERA and 1.85 WHIP. Cobb has pitched a total of 35.2 innings and has 19 strikeouts with seven walks.

White Sox win four of six

Chicago is in one of its best stretches this season, winning four of their last six following Tuesday’s, 3-2 victory. The White Sox are now 14-31 overall and 7-17 at home. Chicago is averaging 3.80 runs per game this season while allowing 5.57 runs per contest.

Dylan Covey is getting just his second start this season for the White Sox. His first start came back on April 28 against the Royals in KC and he allowed four runs and seven hits over six innings in a loss.

MLB Betting Trends

Baltimore

The Orioles are 1-6 in Cobb’s last seven starts and 13-39 in their last 52 road games. They also have dropped four of their last five Wednesday games.

Chicago

Chicago has lost 17 of its last 24 home games and 12 of its last 17 against AL East opponents. They also are just 1-5 in their last six games following a win.

Prediction:

The Orioles are favored because Cobb has spent more time on the mound. Covey has just one start, but his start wasn’t the worst thing that has happened. He still has a ERA lower than what Cobb has. With the White Sox having the home-field edge and some recent success, I will take my chances on them.

 

The Pick: Chicago White Sox +115
