Visiting Club Has Been a Poor Bet in Rangers-Orioles Series

The Baltimore Orioles’ beleaguered starting rotation has been getting beaten up all year long, but the O’s will seek to string together consecutive quality starts vs the Texas Rangers on Tuesday. Sportsbooks opened the O’s as -130 home favorites with a total of 10.5.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone OVER in seven of the Orioles' last nine games as home favorites.
  • The Orioles are 3-8 SU in their last 11 games against right-handed starting pitchers.
  • The Rangers are 6-2 SU and ATS in their last eight games with a closing total of 10.5 or more.

Tyson Ross and Dylan Bundy are slated to get the nod on the hill. Ross (2-1, 5.33 ERA) has made it through six innings in only one of his first five starts this season. The hurler permitted only one run on four hits over 5.2 innings of work against the Los Angeles Angels in his last time out.

Bundy (8-8, 4.33) started the campaign by winning five of his first six decisions but has allowed at least three runs in six straight starts since then. He was tagged for six runs in five innings in a loss to Minnesota in his last outing.

Home-field advantage has been massive in this series. The visiting club is 1-5 SU in the last six collisions between the squads.
