The Baltimore Orioles have lost five of their last seven games when scoring four or more runs. Jonathan Villar leads the Orioles with 152 hits and 62 RBI while Hanser Alberto and Trey Mancini have combined for 286 hits and 123 RBI. Aaron Brooks gets the ball, and he is 4-7 with a 5.81 ERA and 74 strikeouts this season. Brooks is 0-0 with a 3.38 ERA and 11 strikeouts in his career against the Rangers.
The Rangers are 5-2 in their last 7 during game 3 of a series, 11-23 in their last 34 road games and 3-7 in their last 10 Saturday games. The Orioles are 40-88 in their last 128 home games, 27-64 in their last 91 during game 3 of a series and 16-45 in their last 61 vs. American League West.

Brooks has allowed 37 hits and 21 runs in his last 28.2 innings, and he has a 5.16 ERA and .261 allowed batting average at home. The Texas Rangers haven't been the best team on the road this season and struggle these days to string wins together, but backing the Baltimore Orioles has been a no go for me much of the season. The Baltimore Orioles have zero pitching and get blown out far too often to where the plus money isn't even worth the risk. There's much better options o na loaded Saturday, but if I have to pick this game, I'm fading the O's.
