Baltimore vs Detroit Baseball Betting Analysis

Baltimore vs Detroit Baseball Betting Analysis

Written by on May 13, 2016

Each spring delivers a new promise of hope for all of the teams entering the new baseball season, especially for those who landed in the cellar of their division the previous year. That was what happened to the Detroit Tigers in 2015, as they were essentially killed by their own hand, mostly due to the horrible bullpen that they had going for them. They have cleaned that out in the offseason, and hope that anew batch of relievers can change their fortunes. The Baltimore Orioles were a team with a lot of promise last season, but things never really panned out for them. They still have a solid squad of players to go with this year, and from the looks of things early on, it would appear that the AL East is not going to be as strong as it was last season. These two teams will hook up on Saturday as part of a 3-game weekend series, and you can wager on all the action at our MLB Odds portal.

Why bet on the Detroit Tigers

It’s safe to say that this has not been the start to the season that the Tigers (15-19) would have hoped for. Were it not for the woeful Minnesota Twins, the Tigers would once again be propping up the division. If there is a silver lining in this start, it’s that Detroit didn’t look too bad until they hit their last 10 games, where they have gone just 1-9. The pitching has absolutely fallen apart during this stretch, and the team ERA now sits at 4.49. Detroit have now fallen 7.5 games off the pace, and need to break out of this slump soon if they don’t want this season to get away from them early on. The Tigers will send Anibal Sanchez (3-3, 5.89 ERA) to the mound on Saturday.

Why bet on the Baltimore Orioles

The Baltimore Orioles (21-12) have to be delighted with the start that they have made to the season, as they find themselves tied with the Boston Red Sox at the top of the NL East. It’s still very early in the game, but it has to be said that Baltimore seem to have achieved a nice little balance, with the offense and defense both sitting in the top 10 in the league. That has helped them put together an impressive +31 run differential, and is a good part of the reason why they are coming into this series on a 5-game winning streak. The Orioles have been good at home, going 14-5 so far, and they should be able to pad those stats against a struggling Tigers team. Mike Wright (1-3, 5.83 ERA) will start for the Orioles on Saturday.

My Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

These are a pair of teams heading into totally different directions right now, and I think that will be evident on the field. I like the Orioles to win this game, as well as the series. Detroit Tigers 3 Baltimore Orioles 5
