MLB Betting Trends
The Orioles are 10-28 in their last 38 interleague games. Baltimore is 0-4 in its last four games versus the NL West.
The Diamondbacks are 4-0 in their last four games versus the AL East. Arizona is 1-4 in the last five Ray starts on Mondays.
I'm not here to force you to do anything with your money, but there are definitely better bets than the Orioles here. It's going to be a game heavily influenced by their crummy bullpen, they traveled west to get here and they have only won 16 times in 47 road games all season. Ray can be erratic, but he gets the strikeouts and this should be a lineup he mows down. Coupled with the run support he is likely to get, I'm leaning runline with the Diamondbacks.
