BETTING TRENDS

The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Boston's last 5 games.

Boston are 1-6 SU in their last 7 games on the road.

The total has gone UNDER in 9 of Boston's last 11 games when playing on the road against Baltimore.

Baltimore are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 10 of Baltimore's last 15 games against Boston.

 

Prediction

The Red Sox struggled in their last series vs Rays and are 2-4 when have played on the road against the Orioles this season. For this game they'll send Brayan Bello to the mound who's coming from his best start of the season allowing no runs and only 3 hits in 6 innings pitched vs Rangers. The Orioles will send Austin Voth who has been decent on the mound and has allowed 1 run in each of his last 2 starts. The under has cashed big time when these 2 teams have met and with their recent struggles I think the best play is the under.

PICK: Under 8.5 (-110)
