UNDER A Consistent Bet Between Orioles, Red Sox

The AL East rivalry between the Baltimore Orioles and Boston Red Sox has been dominated by pitchers and defense with the UNDER hitting in 11 of the past 14 meetings between the two clubs. In the first three games of this four-game set, the O’s and Sox have averaged a combined 6.7 runs per game. However, it may be hard to bank on the UNDER for the series finale Thursday.

Shark Bites
  • JJ Hardy is hitting .324 with 9 RBIs in his last 11 games at Boston.
  • The favored team is 7-3 SU in the last 10 games between the Orioles and Red Sox.
  • The Orioles are 17-7 against the runline in their last 24 games as road underdogs.

Who the Orioles will start is a question mark after Ubaldo Jimenez, Thursday’s scheduled starter, was forced into action Wednesday following the questionable ejection of Kevin Gausman. Manager Buck Showalter said he has a plan in place but we still may see Jimenez get the start after throwing just 55 pitches last night and 68 in his prior start.

We know that Kyle Kendrick will get the start for the Red Sox but he isn’t exactly a proven commodity this season. Kendrick will be replacing injured Steven Wright in the rotation and will be making his first MLB start since October 2015. In Triple-A Pawtucket this season, Kendrick has a 6.00 ERA and has surrendered seven home runs in four starts.
