Shane’s Free Pick

This is going to be an easy victory for the Orioles. Gibson has been good this season and in his last start he gave up only one run. This Mets offense is a skeleton crew, and their bats are going to struggle to get any type of offense going here. The Orioles offense is also ranked 8th in baseball and they should give Gibson plenty of run support. Back the Orioles on the run line to cash here. 

Shane’s Pick Orioles -1.5
