Baltimore Orioles vs Oakland Athletics Prediction

The Baltimore Orioles are clearly the better team and should be favored, but this is a lot of plus money to turn down. The Oakland Athletics have been quietly putting up crooked numbers offensively over the last week or so, and Mitch Spence has been respectful this season, especially at home. Grayson Rodriguez has been hittable on the road this season where he has a 4.60 ERA. The line may be accurate, but the value is with the Athletics and the big plus money at home.
