Baltimore Orioles vs Boston Red Sox Prediction 

Baltimore comes into this game trying to catch the Yankees in the AL East and they are 18-11 at home so far this season. The Orioles have been outstanding on offense recently, but they will face Kutter Crawford, who has been one of the better pitchers in the AL this year. Crawford did have a bad outing last time out, but he has been very good this year. Boston has been solid with their pitching, but the offense is not where it needs to be. The Red Sox will go against Corbin Burnes, who is absolutely rolling right now. Baltimore doesn’t lose too many games in a row, especially at home, and I like them to bounce back with a strong outing from Burnes. My Baltimore Orioles vs Boston Red Sox prediction is for Baltimore to win by at least two runs.
