2010 Season MLB Baseball Past Picks

Baltimore at Boston

3 units on Boston -1.5 runs -140 (runline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: WIN
This is a near impossible task for the Orioles who have been futile on the road. The Orioles bring in an 8-30 mark in their 38 road games, but what has happened when they face Jon Lester is an even worse nightmare. Lester is 11-0 against the Orioles in his career, pitching to a 2.06 ERA. The O's are bad but have been worse against lefthanders at 14-39 in their last 53. To add some salt to the wounds, the Orioles chances on the road behind Guthrie are near zero. They are 4-22 in his last 26 road starts, and 0-8 against Boston. Boston by a country mile in this one, so I'll take them on the runline.
