Prediction:

Given the pitching matchup and the recent performances of both teams, the pick for this game is the Texas Rangers on the run line (+1.5). Jon Gray, the starting pitcher for the Rangers, has been a solid performer this season with a 3.03 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP. His ability to keep games close makes the Rangers a viable choice to cover the spread in this matchup.

While Corbin Burnes has been excellent for the Orioles, boasting a 2.35 ERA and a 1.01 WHIP, the Orioles have struggled in their recent games, losing four of their last five. This indicates potential vulnerabilities that the Rangers could exploit, especially with a reliable pitcher like Gray on the mound. Furthermore, the Rangers' offense, led by players like Corey Seager and Marcus Semien, has shown the capability to generate runs even against strong pitchers.

In conclusion, despite the Orioles' strong overall record and Burnes' impressive season, the recent form of the Orioles and the reliability of Jon Gray make the Texas Rangers on the run line (+1.5) the best pick for this game. Gray's ability to keep the game close, combined with the Orioles' recent struggles, suggests that the Rangers have a solid chance to cover the spread in this contest.

Pick: Rangers +1.5 (-115)
