Betting Odds: Orioles ML (-115) - Over/Under (8)
Pick: Orioles ML (-115)
Friday night takes us to Progressive Field in Cleveland where the Cleveland Guardians will play the second game of a four game series against the Baltimore Orioles. These two teams have had two very different seasons after both of them came into the year with plenty of expectations of winning their respective divisions and making the postseason. Unfortunately only the Baltimore Orioles will be playing playoff baseball this season after the Cleveland Guardians season turned into a huge disaster over the summer.
The Baltimore Orioles are fantastic this season after several years of rebuilding has paid off for them and they are now one of the best teams in all of Major League Baseball. They come into this game sitting in first place of the American League East division and they are closing in on winning over 100 games on the season, as they come into the second game of this series with a record of 95-58 through their first 153 games of the 2023 Major League Baseball season.
They have built up a successful lead in the American League East division over the Tampa Bay Rays and they will be looking to shut the door with some successful performances over the weekend. Baltimore has one of the most lethal lineups in all of Major League Baseball and as long as they remain healthy they are a serious contender to win the World Series this season. They have the perfect combination of solid starting pitching and timely hitting and they are more than capable of making a deep run in the postseason.

The Cleveland Guardians had plenty of expectations coming into the 2023 Major League Baseball season. Unfortunately, for the Cleveland guardians, their season ended up being a massive disappointment and they will finish second in the worst division in baseball but miss the postseason. It also seems very likely at this point that unless they win out it will finish the year with a losing record as well, which further shows just how awful the American League Central division has been the season if Cleveland can finish in second place despite going under .500 for the year.
This will be the very final season that they have Terry Francona as their manager so the future of this franchise could look very different in the coming seasons, but they are a team that is built to win in the future and they are hoping that this losing season is not something that becomes a trend over the next several years. They will be looking to finish the regular season, strong and build up plenty of momentum for next season with their second consecutive victory over the Baltimore Orioles here on Friday night at home.
Betting trends to consider in this matchup:
- Baltimore is 50-28 on the road this season
- Baltimore is 35-22 after a loss this season
- Cleveland is 29-43 after a win this season
I expect the Baltimore Orioles to pick up the victory over the Cleveland Guardians in the second game of this series on Friday night in Cleveland. Baltimore has been fantastic at bouncing back from losses throughout the season and I expect them to do more of the same here in this game on Friday night to even up this series at one game apiece before heading into the final two games of the weekend.As always, get our VIP Pick Free Tonight by Clicking Here!
