The Pittsburgh Pirates face the Baltimore Orioles in game two of their series from Camden yards. MLB odds are now posted at Oddsmaker sportsbook.
The Pittsburgh Pirates have overtaken first place in the National League Central division and are not looking back. Their pitching has led the way thus far and when you combine that with clutch hitting you have a team that is now in first place late in the season for the first time in a while. Starting pitcher AJ Burnett pitched brilliantly yesterday as he tossed seven innings of five hit, two run baseball. Brad Lincoln will look to get this series off to go right start. He is coming off a loss in his most recent outing to the Reds.
The Orioles also come into this game exceeding expectations this season. They have slowed down in recent weeks and are now in third place in the American League East. They did however manage to win two of three games versus Philadelphia this weekend. With their pitching staff and offense slowing down a bit the last couple weeks the way they play the next few weeks will likely determine if they stay in this race for the remainder of the season. They will look to Wei Yin Chen tonight to get them back on track. Chen has been one of their best pictures and came up big in his last outing versus Boston.
We really like the pitching matchup in the Orioles favor tonight. Even though the Pirates are probably playing better right now we just do not view Lincoln as a viable option tonight. We will take Baltimore and the money line in this one so prior to wagering get sportsbook promotion codes.
