The Red Sox are 19-7 in the last 26 meetings in Baltimore and 13-3 in the last 16 meetings.
Another day, another chance to fade the Baltimore Orioles. Again, there's no team in baseball that has lost more money this season than the Baltimore Orioles. Even with them being underdogs most nights, the Orioles still have lost money money for bettors this season than any team, and it hasn't been close. The Boston Red Sox haven't named a starting pitcher for this game and game twos are always tough to predict without knowing what happened in the first game, but fading the O's has been a good option all season. No reason to back away from that plan.
