Baltimore Orioles vs Chicago White Sox Prediction

I’m on the Orioles -1.5 here. It’s an ugly price for the O’s and I still have my concerns with Baltimore against some right-handed pitching given the averages against righties in the month of May. However, Chris Flexen has really struggled in recent starts and I’m not sure I want to get behind him here as this is looking like the Flexen that struggled his way through the first few starts of the season compared to the one that had a strong start to the month of May. I think Baltimore gets to Flexen early and often here and gets a big win. Give me Baltimore -1.5 in this one.

Chris’s Pick Baltimore -1.5
