The Baltimore Orioles and the Los Angeles Angels continue their series on Tuesday from Camden Yards. All odds for this game are updated at Just Bet sportsbook.
The Orioles currently lead the AL wild-card race, and still are in contention and division. They’re 21 – 15 at home this season and are just 2.5 games behind the Yankees for the division. The Orioles have gotten solid offensive contributions from players such as centerfield superstar Adam Jones, but will need more consistent pitching to stay in the playoff race throughout. Today the Orioles will send Brian Matusz to the mound who haslost four of his last five starts. Matusz has had a tough season totaling a 5.00 ERA in 75 innings of work.
The Angels are hot on the heels of the Orioles for the wild card and look to be getting back in to the playoff race after a rough start to the season. They are 7-3 in their last 10 games and look to be making their move starting now. Tonight the Angels will start CJ Wilson who has won his last four decisions. Wilson has pitching to a 2.44 ERA in 92 innings pitched.
Baltimore is 7-0 in their last seven home games against a left handed starter, 13-3 in their last 16 games following an off day, and 6-18 in Matusz’s last 24 starts. Los Angeles is 11-1 in their last 12 road games, 4-1 in their last five against the A.L. East, and 6-0 in Wilson’s last six starts. Los Angeles is 7-3 in the last 10 meetings of these two.
Both of these teams are playing very well and while we like CJ Wilson in the pitching matchup we cannot ignore how good of odds Baltimore is getting here home. Take Baltimore as the significant money line underdog at home and this one at online sports books.
