Orioles Have Been Thriving as the Underdog

The Red Sox open up a series with the Orioles on Monday as they cling to a one-game lead in the AL East. The first 20-game winner of the year, Rick Porcello, will take the mound looking to extend his major league lead in wins against Dylan Bundy in Baltimore.

SHARK BITES
  • The total has gone UNDER in 10 of the Orioles' last 14 games with a closing total of 9.0 or more.
  • The Orioles are 6-1 on both the moneyline and runline in their last 7 games as underdog.
  • The total has gone OVER in 9 of the Red Sox' last 12 games on the road with Porcello as the starting pitcher.

Porcello pitched more than well enough in his last start to earn a win as he went eight strong innings, allowing just one run. His offence, however, failed to give him even a single run of support and the New Jersey native was pegged with a tough loss. Coincidentally enough, that last start came against the same Orioles he will face tonight.

Bundy is 9-5 this season with an ERA of 3.88 but should consider himself lucky that both of those metrics are not much worse. The 23-year-old has a WHIP of 1.39 and has received 4.83 runs of support per start. In five appearances against the BoSox this year, Bundy is 1-1 with a 6.00 ERA and has allowed them to hit .362 off of him.
