Red Hot Orioles Take on The Cubbies: July 12

Written by Cartichoke

How's everyone doing today? I am doing great thank you for asking. It is my favourite betting day of the week, Tuesday. You just simply win the most coin on Tuesday’s, I don’t know the science behind it or the stats but just trust me okay. It is foolproof.

The MLB game that I have my eyes on is between the Baltimore Orioles (43-44). Wait, are the Orioles one game below .500? Let me double check that again. YUP THAT IS RIGHT. Baltimore Orioles are 43-44 on the season and they’re headed to Wrigley Field tonight to take on the Chicago Cubs (34-52).

Yeah, Baltimore is good. We need to start respecting the Orioles now. They are currently on an 8-game winning streak and have only lost two games in the month of July. Those two losses were their first two games of the month as well. Crazy to think that the AL East just added another good team to the division bringing the total at 5.

Pitching for the Orioles is Jordan Lyles, he is 5-7 on the season with a 4.50 ERA and a 1.40 WHIP. Not really the best numbers on the season, but he must love July as well, because he has been outstanding in July so far. This month he has a 1-0 record with a 1.46 ERA and a 0.90 WHIP. Incredibly sexy numbers there.

For the Cubs, Adrian Sampson is getting the nod. He is 0-0 so far this year, with a 2.91 ERA and a 1.02 WHIP and let me tell you, I have never heard of this guy before. Just being straight with you.

Looking at the bats, in the last 10 games the Orioles have been batting a .241 average. The Cubs in the last 10 have been batting .208.

So, we have on one side: a team who is currently on an 8-game win streak, has a pitcher who played well his last two games, and the team’s bats have been hot as of late. And on the other side we have a team that is 18 games below .500, 17-27 at home, and are 4-6 in their last 10 games.

So clearly the Orioles are the favourite…WRONG. The Cubs are the favorite in this game. Let me repeat that, the Chicago Cubs are a -120 favorite tonight.

This literally makes zero sense at all, and I hate it.

So give me the Chicago Cubs -120 on Bet99

The line makes no sense, which is why it makes sense.

I’ll see you at the top.
