Shane’s Free Pick
This total is too low and it might be a game where the Orioles go over this total by themselves. Quantrill has been a problem this season and he sits with an ERA of 5.26. The Orioles are going ot have no issue teeing off on him here. The Guardians will also score plenty against Means and that is going to be the difference here as this game goes the over. Back the over to cash.
