The Texas Rangers and the Baltimore Orioles meet Sunday in MLB action from Camden Yards. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for this game. Here’s a Baltimore Orioles vs Texas Rangers Prediction.

Starting Pitching Matchup

The Texas Rangers come into this one sending Andrew Heaney for the start here and Heaney is 2-9 with a 4.17 ERA and 75 strikeouts this season. In his last five starts against Baltimore, Heaney is 2-2 with a 6.57 ERA and 16 strikeouts. Cole Irvin will get the start for the Orioles here and Irvin is 6-4 with a 3.74 ERA and 54 strikeouts this season. In his last five starts against the Rangers, Irvin is 2-1 with a 2.37 ERA and 26 strikeouts.

Texas Rangers Recap

The Texas Rangers will look to avoid the series sweep after taking a 6-5 loss to the O’s in Saturday’s matchup. The loss pushed the Rangers’ losing streak to six and puts them at risk of back-to-back series sweeps after a 9th straight road loss following a sweep to the Milwaukee Brewers to start the week.

Rangers Trying To Stop The Bleeding

Marcus Semien leads the Rangers with 80 hits along with 16 doubles, 11 home runs and 44 RBIs while Adolis Garcia has 16 home runs and 44 RBIs with 12 doubles as well as 6 stolen bases. Jonah Heim has 7 homers and 33 RBIs and Josh Smith also has a team-high 18 doubles. Corey Seager also has 15 home runs with 37 RBIs of his own this season.

Why the Texas Rangers will win

  • The Rangers have won each of their last five Sunday night games as underdogs against American League opponents.
  • The Orioles have lost five of their last six Sunday games as home favorites against American League opponents.
  • The Rangers have covered the run line in each of their last 10 Sunday night road games.
  • The Orioles have failed to cover the run line in six of their last seven games against AL West opponents that held a losing record.

Baltimore Orioles Recap

The Baltimore Orioles will look to complete the series sweep of the Rangers after Saturday’s win. The win was the 4th straight for the Rangers and the series win was much needed for the O’s after back-to-back series losses to the Astros and Guardians over the last week and a half.

Orioles Rolling At The Plate

Gunnar Henderson leads the Orioles with 26 home runs, along with 58 RBIs and 4 triples but also has a team-high 84 strikeouts in addition to 13 stolen bases. Adley Rutschman has a team-high 95 hits with 15 home runs and 55 RBIs in addition to 12 doubles while Anthony Santander has 14 doubles with 22 home runs and 55 RBIs and Colton Cowser has 13 doubles and Ryan Mountcastle has a team-high 21 doubles. Cedric Mullins has also contributed a team-high 16 stolen bases as well this season.

Why the Baltimore Orioles will win

  • The home team has won each of the Rangers’ last 10 games.
  • The Rangers have lost each of their last 11 night games against AL East opponents following a road loss.
  • The Rangers have failed to cover the run line in six of their last eight road games against teams that held a winning record.

Baltimore Orioles vs Texas Rangers Prediction

I’m on the over here. The Rangers have been hitting left-handed pitching fairly well as of late and have a matchup here against Cole Irvin, who has really started to regress in recent starts. On the other side, Andrew Heaney has been a hard contact magnet for the better part of his career and the Orioles have been hitting lefties well as of late as well. Give me the over.
