Oakland Athletics vs Baltimore Orioles Prediction

The Oakland Athletics are putting together a decent week and just beat up on the Angels but excuse me if I’m not excited to get behind them still. The Baltimore Orioles are comfortably the better team in this spot, and Albert Suarez is easier to trust than Hogan Harris. This is a spot where I’m simply going to side with the better team and anticipate regression from a bad Athletics side. Give me the Orioles and the RL for max betting value.
