Orioles drop last two
After winning the series opener on Monday, the Orioles have lost the last two games in this series and four of their last five overall. Baltimore is now 15-34 overall and 5-21 on the road. The Orioles are putting up 3.98 runs per game on offense while allowing 5.40 per contest on defense.
Dylan Bundy gets the start for the Orioles this afternoon. He has started 10 games this season and has a 2-6 record with a 4.70 ERA and a 1.40 WHIP. Bundy has pitched 53.2 innings and has 63 strikeouts with 19 walks.
White Sox remain hot
Chicago continues one of its best string this season by winning its fourth game in five tries in Wednesday’s 11-1 victory. The White Sox are now 15-31 overall and 8-17 at home. Chicago is averaging 3.80 runs per game this season while allowing 5.57 runs per contest.
Lucas Giolito gets the start for the White Sox on Thursday. He has started nine games and is 3-4 with a 6.42 ERA and a 1.57 WHIP. Giolito has pitched a total of 47.2 innings and has 27 strikeouts with 34 walks.
MLB Betting Trends
The Orioles are just 13-40 in their last 53 road games and 1-4 in their last five Thursday games. However, they have won 9 of Bundy’s last 13 starts against a team with a losing record.
The White Sox have won four of Giolito’s last five starts against a losing team. They are 8-17 in their last 25 home games and 7-2 in their last 9 Thursday games.
The White Sox don’t have the edge in starting pitching today, but the Sox are playing pretty well right now against some bad teams. Wednesday was the first game in this series that was lopsided, so I would expect Chicago to keep it close despite who is on the mound. I think their hitting has been a little big stronger right now and I will take them as a home underdog again.
The Pick: Chicago White Sox +125
