Orioles vs. Red Sox Prediction
Are the Orioles worth a flier as an underdog tonight when they visit the Red Sox at 7:10PM ET?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Red Sox are -120 money line favorites versus the Orioles, who have odds of +110 to pull off the upset this evening. With Dylan Bundy set to face Drew Pomeranz in the pitching matchup, the over/under currently sits at 9.5 runs.
Bundy allowed only one run on four hits while striking out eight over seven innings of work in last Wednesday’s 3-1 win over the Blue Jays. The 24-year-old was outstanding, throwing 69 of 99 pitches for strikes and holding a Toronto offense that has been dominant in recent years.
Pomeranz will be making his 2017 season debut after a forearm injury landed him on the 10-day disabled list to start the season. In 31 games last season, he posted a 3.32 ERA over 170 2/3 innings pitched, walking 65 and striking out 186.
OUR PICK: The Orioles are 4-0 in their last four games coming off a loss, are 4-1 in their last five games versus American League East opponents, and are 4-1 in their last five games overall. Baltimore is also 5-1 in Bundy’s last six starts during the first game of a new series and are 5-1 in his last six outings coming off five days of rest. On the other side, the Red Sox are just 1-4 in Pomeranz’s last five home starts and have lost five of their last six games when they’re coming off a loss.
