The over is 5-1 in Orioles last 6 vs. American League West.
The pitching matchups are going to be all out of whack for this contest after a marathon game that probably should have gone the Angels way in the 15th inning. The play at the play looked like David Fletcher was able to get under the tag. Either way, I'm still backing the Angels no matter who is on the hill, as they're simply the better team and are still playing for things, while the Orioles are still a bad baseball team that competes but comes up short more times than not. This price is crazy considering the pitching matchup, so give me the Angles and the RL, and I'll hope for the best.
