June 6, 2024

The final game of a four-game series between the Baltimore Orioles and Toronto Blue Jays will take place on Thursday afternoon in Toronto, Ontario, at the Rogers Centre. Game 4 is scheduled to start at 1:07 PM ET and will air on the MLB Network, MASN, and Root Sports North.

Baltimore Orioles Team Preview

The Baltimore Orioles dominated the first two games of the series, outscoring the Blue Jays 17-3. However, they lost their first game of the series on Wednesday in Game 3 by a score of 2-3 after Craig Kimbrel allowed the game-winning run in the bottom of the 9th inning after Cavan Biggio scored off a base hit from Isiah Kiner-Falefa.

The Orioles have been one of the best teams this season in the American League as they enter the final game of the series in 2nd place in the AL East with a record of 39-21 and trail the New York Yankees for 1st place in the division and have the 3rd best record in the American League, only trailing the Yankees and Guardians. Baltimore also has the 2nd best run differential in the AL and the 3rd best in baseball, only behind the Philadelphia Phillies and New York Yankees.

The loss in Game 3 of the series ended the Orioles' three-game winning streak. However, they have won six of the previous ten meetings and have outscored the Blue Jays by an average of 4.6 to 2.5 runs per game in those contests. The Baltimore Orioles will look to win the series 3-1 when they travel to face the Baltimore Orioles in Game 4 of the series.

Toronto Blue Jays Team Preview

Toronto ended its three-game losing streak in the series against the Baltimore Orioles following a 3-2 win in Game 3 on Wednesday evening. However, the Blue Jays continue to struggle to produce runs this season and have scored three or fewer runs in the three games in the series against the Orioles and four of the previous five games.

The Blue Jays, who have been one of the highest-scoring teams in the American League, have underperformed this season as they are only averaging 3.89 runs per game this season and have scored the 3rd fewest runs in the American League with a total of 237 runs scored. The Blue Jays are in last place in the AL East this season and are three games below .500 with a record of 29-32, which puts them 14 games behind the New York Yankees for 1st place in the division.

The Toronto Blue Jays will look to split the series with the Baltimore Orioles when they host the Orioles for Game 4 on Thursday afternoon.

Odds and Series Trends

JustBet has the Toronto Blue Jays listed as -115 moneyline favorites at home against the Baltimore Orioles for Game 4 of the series on Thursday afternoon. Baltimore has won six of the previous ten and three of the last four games against Toronto while winning by an average margin of 2.1 runs per game in the previous ten and 3.5 runs per game in the last four games.

Game Pick

Baltimore will be starting one of their top pitching prospects for the series' final game, with Cade Povich making his MLB debut, while Yusei Kikuchi has a losing record this season at 2-5. However, Kikuchi's last start against the Orioles resulted in a no-decision after Kikuchi pitched for 4 ? innings, allowing one run and striking out nine batters against Toronto. I look for the Blue Jays to take advantage of the rookie pitcher on the mound for the Orioles, so I am taking the moneyline for Toronto for Game 4 of the series on Thursday afternoon.
