Baltimore Orioles vs. Texas Rangers – 9/5/19 MLB Pick, Odds, and Prediction

2019-09-05 18:05:00 EDT

The Texas Rangers and the Baltimore Orioles will kick off their MLB weekend series on Thursday.

Texas is coming out of a series against the Yankees. After winning 7-0 Monday and falling 10-1 Tuesday, in the Wednesday game the Rangers lost again 4-1.

For Thursday’s start, the Rangers will send out Kolby Allard. Over his 27.0 innings and 3-0 mark so far, Allard has a 4.33 ERA with 27 Ks and nine walks.

Over on the Orioles’ side, they just played the Rays this week. Baltimore got one of the Tuesday games 4-2 but fell in the other one 2-0 and lost Monday 5-4.

For the starting role in Thursday’s game, Baltimore didn’t initially make an official announcement. They will likely go with John Means.

The Rangers are 9-2 in their last 11 games versus a team with a winning percentage below .400 and 2-6 in their last eight in game one of a series. Texas is 4-0 in Allard’s last four starts versus a team with a losing record and 4-0 in his last four overall.

Meanwhile, the Orioles are 14-39 in their last 53 after an off day and 17-61 in their last 78 in game one of a series. Baltimore is 5-22 in their last 27 Thursday games and 97-227 in their last 324 overall.

Allard doesn’t have a ton of stats to work with this season, but he’s really only had a couple of bad games so far. Across his last pair, he’s given up just two earned in 12.0 innings and won both of them.

Assuming the Texas offense comes out here I like Allard’s chances. I’m sticking with the Rangers on this one.
