The Baltimore Orioles look for consistency after splitting their last 12 games. The Orioles have allowed 12 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in eight of their last 11 games. The Baltimore Orioles have an ERA of 4.21 and have lost six of their last seven games when allowing more than three runs. Offensively, Manny Machado leads Baltimore with 86 hits, Mark Trumbo has 51 RBI and Jonathan Schoop has 12 home runs. Tyler Wilson takes the hill, and he’s 3-5 with a 4.16 ERA and 36 strikeouts this season. This will be Wilson’s first career game against the Padres.
The Padres are 5-2 in their last 7 games following an off day and 2-7 in their last 9 vs. American League East. The Orioles are 4-1 in their last 5 during game 1 of a series and 0-4 in Wilsons last 4 home starts. The over is 7-3 in the last 10 meetings.
The Padres are hitting the ball well lately, which gives them a chance to win some games on the road. Also, Wilson hasn't been great this season and has allowed a combined 10 runs in his last three games. The same reason I took Pittsburgh to beat St. Louis yesterday is why I'm backing the big plus money here. The value is too great.
