Wednesday evening takes us to the city of Angels in Los Angeles, California as the Los Angeles Angels host the Baltimore Orioles in the finale of this three-game series on Wednesday night. Earlier in the season this matchup looked like a potential preview of an American League playoff series but as the year has progressed, it has become clear that Baltimore has lived up to their expectations while Los Angeles has not, and the Angels will be missing out on the playoffs this season.
Baltimore has been one of the best teams in all of Major League Baseball this season, and they come into the finale of this series with the best record in the American League as well. They currently sit on top of the hardest division in all of baseball this season as well, and they will be looking to further extend their lead within the division with another victory over the Los Angeles Angels here on Wednesday night on the road. They have gotten the job done all season with a mixture of quality, starting pitching and timely hitting with a lineup of young stars that are quickly becoming some of the household names in Major League Baseball.
The Orioles will have their best starting pitcher getting the baseball for the finale of this series on Wednesday night. Kyle Gibson is expected to take the mound for Baltimore in this game, and he will be looking to further his case for being one of the three voting finalists in the American League Cy Young award race. Gibson is having a tremendous year and he has been able to shut down opposing lineups all season long and he should have no problem shutting down this Angels lineup that will likely be without their two biggest stars in Mike Trout and Shohei Ohtani. Gibson comes into this game with thirteen victories to his name on the season, and he will be looking to pick up his fourteenth victory of the year here on Wednesday night in Los Angeles against the Angels.

At this point, it just continues to feel like a recurring nightmare for the Los Angeles Angels franchise. They came into yet another season with aspirations of making a deep playoff run and once again, they will find themselves sitting home when the playoffs start in about a month. Los Angeles, despite putting together a solid roster, full of timely hitters and quality starting pitchers have been able to get the job done once again, and now in the off-season their future is at stake as well. As their superstar player, Shohei Ohtani will be entering free agency, and it seems very unlikely that he will resign with the Los Angeles Angels, and it could signal the beginning of a long and lengthy rebuilding era for this franchise as well.
Los Angeles has already attempted to clear room for Ohtanis contract after releasing several players on waivers a couple of weeks ago. However, it feels like at this point it will take a massive shift for Shohei Ohtani to re-sign with the Los Angeles Angels. The Los Angeles Angels have been on a rough losing streak as of late and they have lost around 80% of their last 10 games lately as well. They will be at a huge disadvantage against the Baltimore Orioles here in this one on Wednesday night as they have to figure out how to hit one of the best starting pitchers in the league, Kyle Gibson. They will have to play their best game of the season if they want to pick up a victory here in this one and try to salvage some momentum heading into the rest of the week.
Betting trends to consider in this matchup:
- Baltimore is 45-25 on the road
- Los Angeles is 32-35 at home
- Baltimore is 50-25 as the favorite
I expect the Baltimore Orioles to cruise in the finale of this series against the Los Angeles Angels on Wednesday night on the road in Los Angeles. As I look for Baltimore to pick up a quality and comfortable victory, led by a solid performance from Kyle Gibson out on the pitchers mound. As the Orioles like to extend their lead in the American League East division over the Tampa Bay Rays and the Toronto Blue Jays.
