Orioles Betting Preview

Baltimore moved to 9-7 after defeating Chicago. The Orioles scored the final eight runs to defeat the White Sox by four, 8-4. The Baltimore offense is scoring 5.33 runs per game, while batting .260, with a .357 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 5.27 ERA, with a 1.37 WHIP. Jorge Mateo leads the team in hitting (.372) after a hot series versus Chicago. Ryan Mountcastle leads the O’s in RBI (20), with Cedric Mullins right behind him at 15 after producing four in the win over the White Sox. 

Dean Kremer (0-0, 9.49 ERA, 8 Ks) will get the ball for Baltimore. The fourth-year pitcher has shown little resistance but been a beneficiary of run support. Kremer has given up four or more runs in all three starts, while striking out just eight batters.

Nationals Betting Preview

Washington moved to 5-11 after defeating Cleveland. The Nationals snapped a four-game skid with a big eighth inning to win by one, 7-6. The Washington offense is scoring 3.42 runs per game, while batting .259, with a .326 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 4.82 ERA, with a 1.42 WHIP. Lane Thomas had multiple hits in two of three games against Cleveland, and he’s leading the team in batting average (.323). Thomas is also tied for the team-lead in RBI at nine with Jeimer Candelario, who produced four in the win over Cleveland. 

Josiah Gray (0-3, 4.32 ERA, 13 Ks) will get the call for Washington. The third-year pitcher was solid in two road starts in Anaheim and Colorado, despite earning a pair of losing decisions. Gray did have a tough time in his lone home start of the season with Atlanta, giving up five runs in five innings pitched.

Baltimore vs Washington Trends

Baltimore is 9-7 against the spread this season, with a 11-4-1 over/under record. Washington is 9-7 ATS this year, with a 8-6-2 O/U record.

Corey's Free Pick

Baltimore will make the 50-minute trip down to DC this week with winning in mind, and I think they take control of the DMV. The Orioles have the bats to blow things up for Josiah Gray, and I think they find a way to open their fifth straight series with a victory. While I do believe Baltimore finds a way to win, with Dean Kremer taking the mound, they will likely be giving up some runs to their regional rivals. Take the Over here, as it comes with more security.
