The Baltimore Orioles and the Kansas City Royals meet on Saturday for game three of their series from Camden Yards. All odds for all of these games can be found at Bovada sportsbook.
The Orioles are still in the running for the postseason race and bounced back with a win on Friday. They blasted seven runs on ten hits in the game and received a solid pitching performance from Miguel Gonzalez. Tonight they will start Chris Tillman who has won his last four starts. In just 34 innings of work Tillman is pitching to 2.38 ERA.
The Royals have shown flashes of what they’re capable of, but have had a rough season overall. They dropped the game on Friday and scored just one run on six hits and will look their best to turn around tonight. Luis Mendoza who has lost two of his last three starts will get the ball tonight. Mendoza is pitching to a 4.36 ERA in 107 innings of work.
Baltimore is 6-1 in their last seven games overall, 6-2 in their last eight games against the AL Central, and 6-1 in Tillman’s last seven starts as a favorite. Kansas City is 8-3 in their last 11 games against the AL East, 4-2 in their last six games overall, and 1-4 in Mendoza’s last five starts as an underdog.
We like the under for total runs scored in this game because we look for the Orioles to continue to silence the bats of the Royals at the sports book.
