Pick: Orioles ML (-120)

The Chicago Cubs and the Baltimore Orioles will play the third and final game of a three game series here on Thursday night at Camden Yards in Baltimore. These are two teams that came into the season with expectations of making a postseason run, but throughout the first half of the year, only Baltimore has lived up to those expectations at the moment. That’s not to say Chicago isn’t well within striking distance of grabbing a wildcard spot in the National League, but they will have plenty of work to do if they want to get themselves back in the running coming out of the All-Star break. 

This has been a season of inconsistencies for the Chicago Cubs, but if they can catch a stride, they should have no problem fighting their way back into the wildcard race throughout the second half of the season. Picking up another victory over Baltimore here on Thursday after grabbing the victory on Wednesday would be a good start for Chicago to get things going in the right direction. Justin Steele gets the start for Chicago in this game on Thursday night and he is putting up quality numbers throughout the first half of the year. He will look to further add to his potential National League Cy Young campaign throughout the season with another impressive performance against one of the best lineups in baseball.

Chicago is riding a wave of momentum at the moment winning the opening two games of this series against the Orioles and now they will look to complete the three games sweep here on Thursday night in Baltimore. They come into this game with 44 victories through their first 93 games of the season and they will look to pick up win number 45 and finish the sweep of the Orioles here in this one. Not only have they picked up two consecutive wins against one of the best teams in baseball, but they’ve done it in dominant fashion, easily outscoring Baltimore throughout the opening two games of this series. That is a trend that they will look to continue throughout game number three here in this one, as they look to build up as much momentum as possible heading into the weekend.

Baltimore is having a pretty solid season up to this point, but they have struggled against the Chicago Cubs throughout this series. Although they have already lost this game series against Chicago, they will look to salvage a little bit of momentum with a victory here on Thursday night and the finale at home. Baltimore will need to continue to rack up throughout the second half of the season if they want to stay ahead of the New York Yankees. 

New York will certainly find their form that they had throughout the beginning of the season and challenge for the American League East division title. They have lost two in a row but still hold a two game lead over the New York Yankees coming into the final weekend before the all star break. They have lost out of their last ten games on the year, and they will look to grab their first victory of this series here in Thursday’s finale. Albert Suarez gets the start for Baltimore here in this one, as he comes into this game with a record of 5-2 on the season. He will look to grab his sixth victory of the year here on Thursday at home. 

Betting trends to consider in this matchup:

- Baltimore is 29-19 at home 

- Chicago is 19-28 on the road 

- Baltimore is 30-16 against sub .500 teams 

I expect this to be a close and competitive game throughout the finale of this series on Thursday night. As the starting pitching matchup provides plenty of excitement. Both of these teams will likely have trouble putting runs across the board throughout the early innings but in the end I look for Baltimore to grab the win over Chicago.
