Money Line: -130 Baltimore
8* Baltimore (7:05 ET): Coming into the season, I didn't think there was any way that the Orioles could have a repeat of last year's dreadful 47-win campaign. So here we are w/ a month left to go in the season and they are one win away from matching LY's total. Can't say we've played the O's too many times in 2019, but they get a rare endorsement tonight at home vs. Texas. While they did lose 3-1 last night, it's highly unlikely that they'll go 0 for 13 w/ RISP again and tonight's starting pitching matchup certainly seems to work in their favor. Baltimore matches LY's win total tonight!
Dylan Bundy has been one of Baltimore's more reliable starters during this tough era. He has a 9-17 TSR this year, but pitched pretty well in August and more importantly has a 1.61 ERA in six career appearances vs. Texas. Bundy's last four starts at home have all seen him allow 2 ER or less. Right now, the Rangers' offense is struggling as they've managed just five runs total the L3 games and had only five hits in yday's win. Eight of the last 10 games have seen the Rangers get held to three runs or fewer. Note this could be just the 2nd time all year Baltimore closes at -125 or higher on the ML, which certainly says something about the matchup.
Little known Brock Burke gets the start tonight for Texas. He's actually off to a decent start to his big league career w/ a 1.50 ERA after three starts. But he still has yet to win a decision. Once again, he doesn't figure to get much help from his offense, which has scored a total of just six runs in his three previous starts. Texas is 1-10 its last 11 games after allowing 2 runs or less. They are also just 11-23 their L34 road games. All four games these teams have played this year have been close. This time Baltimore wins. 8* Baltimore
