Orioles Have Quietly Become a Solid Runline Wager

The Tampa Bay Rays have been overachieving for the majority of the MLB season but have hit a major rough patch of late. The Rays, losers of a season-high five straight games, will try to turn things around vs the division rival Baltimore Orioles this afternoon. Sportsbooks opened the O’s as +115 road underdogs with a total of 9.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone OVER in six of the Orioles' last seven games on the road against the Rays.
  • The total has gone OVER in 12 of the Rays' last 15 games at home against teams with losing records.
  • The Rays are 6-2 SU in their last eight games with Jacob Faria as the starting pitcher.

Wade Miley and Jacob Faria will get the nod on the bump. Miley (4-8, 5.58 ERA) hasn’t reached the six-inning mark in any of his last nine starts, allowing four or more runs in eight of those outings. The 30-year-old is 4-3 with a 2.60 ERA in 10 career games against Tampa Bay.

Faria (4-1, 2.52) has had a solid start to his major-league career, giving up just one run in five of his first eight starts. Faria has had issue with his control, however, as he’s walked a combined 10 batters in the last three after surrendering five free passes in his first five.

Runline bettors have been profiting in a big way behind Baltimore of late. In the Orioles’ last eight, they’re 7-1 on the runline.

Opening Odds & Computer Pick

The visiting Baltimore Orioles were 140 moneyline underdogs in this one earlier in the day at most online sportsbooks including Bovada. The total was 9.5 at Bet365 for those preferring OVER/UNDER betting.
