BETTING TRENDS

The total has gone UNDER in 8 of Cleveland's last 10 games on the road.

Cleveland are 1-5 SU in their last 6 games when playing on the road against Baltimore.

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

The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Baltimore's last 7 games at home

Prediction

Both offenses have been cold on this series and looks like they'll continue to be with this pitching matchup. Shane Bieber will take the mound for the Guardians who has been pretty solid lately and has allowed less than 2 runs in each of his last 5 starts. The Orioles will send Kyle Bradish to start this game who has also been sharp allowing zero runs in 8 innings pitched vs Astros. This is going to be a great pitching duel so expect both offenses  to struggle on this game. Take the under.

PICK: Under 7.5 (-110)
