The Orioles are coming off a productive 2–1 series win over the Angels. The Orioles scored 25 runs through their first 3 games and have to feel good about the start.

Royals vs Orioles prediction

I don't have much confidence in the Royals' offense repeating what it did yesterday, and the O's are the better team across the board. However, we're getting plus money with Wacha on the mound. Wacha is coming off a fine season with the Padres, where he had a 3.32 ERA and 1.16 WHIP. Kremer was an above average pitcher in his own right and won a lot of games for the Orioles, but it's fair to say Wacha is the more consistent pitcher. I'll take a shot with the Royals and the plus money because of the starting pitching edge.
