The Dodgers and Orioles open up with the first game of the three game series in Baltimore on Friday. View the MLB odds at Oddsmaker sportsbook.
The Dodgers (7-8) had a nice little start going until they ran into the San Diego Padres for the second time this season. The Dodger were 7-4 and were coming off a win in Arizona. The next night, the Diamondbacks win 7-5 and started the whirl-wind that the Dodgers are currently falling in. The mini-rivalry with the Padres has been well documented after the Zack Greinke and Carlos Quentin incident. In the second series of the season, the Padres, who have been pretty bad all year, swept the Dodgers. Los Angeles was outscored 22-7 in the three games in LA. Now, the Dodgers will start a six game round trip that includes three games against both the Orioles and the New York Mets. LA will start Hyun Jin Ryu, who is 2-1 on the season in his three starts.
The Orioles (7-7) have not started well but are still .500. They are coming off a game that went extra innings against the Rays. The Orioles dropped three games once during the season when they lost twice to the Twins and once to Boston. Baltimore will start Jason Hammel on Friday. Hammel is 2-1.
LA is 5-10 against the spread this season while the Orioles are 7-7 ATS, which matches their record.
Two solid pitchers with solid hitters in the squad but Baltimore will win. They are playing at home while the Dodgers are traveling from LA and they have lost four in a row at sportsbooks.
