The Los Angeles Angels and the Baltimore Orioles meet in MLB action from Camden Yards on Monday night. Let’s dive into the odds, starting pitching matchup, history and make a prediction for this game.


Los Angeles is listed as a -135 road favorite while Baltimore’s a +115 home underdog. The total for this game is set at 8 runs.

Starting Pitching Matchup

Shohei Ohtani will start for the Angels and is 4-1 with a 2.74 ERA and 66 strikeouts this season. Grayson Rodriguez will get the nod for the Orioles here and is 2-0 with a 5.08 ERA and 41 strikeouts this season.

Matchup History

Baltimore’s 9-5 win back on July 10th, 2022, made it four straight wins for the Orioles in this head-to-head matchup.


Los Angeles is 5-2 in their last 7 road games and 1-4 in their last 5 games overall while the over is 8-0-1 in their last 9 Monday games. Baltimore is 4-1 in their last 5 home games and 20-8 in their last 28 games overall while the under is 6-0-1 in their last 7 games overall.


I’m backing the Orioles here. I get why the Angels are favored here with Ohtani on the hill, but the Orioles have been playing some solid baseball as of late and outside of name brand and the obvious talent of Ohtani, there’s not much separating these two teams. Sure, Ohtani is the better pitcher, but Rodriguez has been pitching well in his own right and the O’s have been hitting righties well lately and Ohtani’s been hittable bottom line. Give me the Orioles here.
