The Orioles are 1-4 in their last 5 during game 2 of a series and 7-19 in Gausmans last 26 road starts. The Giants are 4-1 in their last 5 Saturday games and 0-5 in Bumgarners last 5 starts.
Are we really going to lay this much juice with the Giants? Sure, Bumgarner is a great pitcher, but the Giants have lost his last five starts. He's also allowed nine runs in his last 13 innings. Bumgarner has not win a game since July 10th. Those numbers are bound to change, but the value here is all over Baltimore and the heavy plus money.
