Gambling Insight M’s vs O’s Game 3

Baltimore has won 12 straight extra-inning games after blanking Seattle over the final eight innings of Tuesday’s contest. The Mariners probably come into this game steaming from last night.

Matchup | Preview

Seattle

The Seattle Mariners were unable to continue their rash of hot play in the Bronx, dropping two of three against New York over the weekend.

They then dropped their opener of their series against Baltimore so it appears whatever fever got into them has likely run its course.

To top it off the M’s took a smack to the face in their game late Tuesday. A blown call by a pathetic UMP and another loss to the O’s.

Given their recent play you have to think that the odds are in Baltimore’s favour.

When Kevin Millwood takes the hill you are definitely going to get an honest effort. The problem is that his effectiveness varies greatly from game to game. One thing in Seattle’s favour is that he is far better on the road.

Also, he is 9-3 lifetime against Baltimore but when he was with the Orioles pitching at Camden Yards it didn’t elevate his numbers much.

It seems pretty easy to take the other side in this one

Baltimore

I think by now the Baltimore Orioles have proven that they are at least better than average. You keep waiting for a team that is -55 in run differential to fall apart but they are in second place in the AL East and closing in on the struggling Yankees.

This team just shouldn’t win but it does and against Seattle it may feel like a bit of a reprieve after facing winning teams for the last 12 straight.

The Orioles have lost starter Tommy Hunter’s last 4 starts as the former promising rookie with the Rangers continues to regress. Hunter’s biggest problem is that he gives up too many long balls.

He hasn’t had a start where the opponent hasn’t gone yard since May and simultaneously he has watched his ERA balloon up to 5.55 (which would be third worst in the AL if he qualified).

Funnily he has enjoyed good success against Seattle for his career with a scant 2.28 ERA.

O/U Pick: Over
Score Prediction: Baltimore 7 – Seattle 5
