Cubs Figuring It Out?

The Cubs have been inconsistent all season, but it looks like they finally might be figuring it out. The Cubs have won three of the last four games, including on Sunday, when they shutout the Los Angeles Angels 5-0. Hayden Wesneski went 6.1 innings, giving up one hit and zero runs. The Cubs are averaging 4.11 runs, while their pitching is giving up 4.38 runs per game. The offense is ranked 21st in the league, while the pitching is ranked 15th. Ian Happ has hit 13 home runs and driven in 52 RBIs so far this season. 

Orioles Continue to Impress 

The Orioles have played well all season, and they sit with a 57-33 record. On Sunday, the Orioles scored six runs, and they ended up winning by three runs over the Oakland Athletics. Anthony Santander hit a home run to pace Baltimore. The Orioles are averaging 5.16 runs, while their pitching is giving up 3.98 runs per game. The offense is ranked 1st in the league, while the pitching is ranked 9th. They have a run differential that is second best in baseball. Gunnar Henderson has hit 21 home runs and driven in 61 RBIs so far this season. Getting the start for the Orioles will be Dean Kremer who sits with a 4-4 record and an ERA of 3.93. In his last start against the Seattle Mariners, he went five innings, giving up two hits and zero runs. 

Why the Orioles Will Beat the Cubs

  • The Cubs have lost 12 of their last 13 road games following a win.
  • The Orioles have won four of their last five games at Oriole Park at Camden Yards.
  • The Cubs have failed to cover the run line in 20 of their last 21 games following a win.
  • The Orioles have covered the run line in 13 of their last 16 games following a road win.

Chicago Cubs vs Baltimore Orioles Prediction

Dean Kremer has been good for the Orioles, and he gave up zero runs in his last start. Kremer is going to be lights out again here. The Cubs are averaging 4.11 runs per game, but they are going to really struggle to get anything going here. The Orioles' offense is averaging 5.16 runs per game, and they should give Kremer plenty of run support here. Back the Orioles on the run line to cash.
