Baltimore Orioles Betting Preview

The Orioles are 3-2 over their last five games and need to find consistency soon. They recently won Game 1 in a 3-2 outing over the A's, where strong starter pitching stole the show.

As for starter pitching, they will have Cade Povich (1-2) on the mound. He boasts a 4.05 ERA and a 1.24 WHIP, while his team's ERA is at 3.40. This will be an excellent opportunity for him to shine.

Gunnar Henderson leads their offense in a few areas. This includes his leadership in 27 home runs and 60 RBIs, which crack the top 10 in the league stats. If he can get going early, they have an excellent opportunity to succeed.

The Orioles put up .254 at the plate offensively and are holding teams to average .223. If they can continue with these numbers for Game 2, they should have an excellent opportunity to succeed. Compared to the A's, they have a good advantage in this area.

The Athletics' three-game win streak, which began in their three-game series against the Los Angeles Angels, was snapped with the recent Game 1 defeat.

They will put Luis Medina (1-3) to start as a pitcher, as he has a 4.80 ERA and a 1.50 WHIP. With their team ERA at 4.29, he will need a good start. This will significantly affect their chances of success if he can handle a few good opening innings.

Brent Rooker continues to be their face for everything on offense. He has done well in leading them with 17 homers, 50 RBIs, and a .270 batting average. He will be a potential difference-maker in this game.

The A's have been hitting .221 at the plate, but they have given up .256 in return. This makes it difficult to win games consistently. This model will be tested once again to see if it works.
