Shane’s Free Pick

This is going to be another easy victory for the Orioles. The Red Sox’s offense really struggled on Wednesday and they are going to have some major issues getting the offense going against Bradish. Bradish is going to give up only one or two goals here, and that is going to be the difference as the Orioles are going to get the job done. Back the Orioles on the money line to cash here.
