June 16, 2024

The Philadelphia Phillies (47-23) take on the Baltimore Orioles (47-24) in a rubber match for Game 3 on Sunday, June 16 at 1:35 PM ET at Oriole Park at Camden Yards in Baltimore, Maryland. The Orioles are market favorites to win, with a current moneyline at -135.

Philadelphia Phillies Betting Preview

The Phillies have gone 2-3 over their last five games, with tough losses against the Boston Red Sox and now against the Orioles. Their latest matchup was a 6-2 defeat against them, their third loss in five games to allow more than six runs.

Hopefully, with Zack Wheeler (8-3) on the mound, they can slow the pace down. He offers an ERA of 2.16 and a WHIP of 0.94, with their team ERA coming in at 3.10. His presence to start should make an impact compared to their relief.

They have Alex Bohm leading a few offensive categories, such as a .295 batting average and 55 RBIs. Bryce Harper has 15 home runs so far and will likely be critical in a pivotal Game 3 showdown.

The Phillies have a .252 batting average and are holding their opponents to .224. This is a great separation between the two averages and slightly more appealing than the Orioles' offering.

Baltimore Orioles Betting Preview

The Orioles are 3-2 over their previous five matchups and were able to snap their two-game losing streak with a recent win. After losing in extra innings in Game 1 of this series, they bounced back with a more dominant 6-2 performance in Game 2.

Their starting pitcher will be Corbin Burnes (7-2), who has an ERA of 2.08 and a WHIP of 1.00. Their team ERA of 3.07 shows that they can hang with the Phillies in this battle defensively.

The Orioles will have Adley Rutschman, who leads them with a batting average of .290 and has 52 RBIs. Another offensive threat is Gunnar Henderson, who leads them with 21 of their 110 homers.

They have a .249 batting average and give up .217 in return. As you can see, both teams have a lot in common. This is similar to the Phillies, which shows that the tiniest mistake anywhere could lead to a loss for either team.
