3 units on Baltimore +120 (moneyline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: WIN
This O's team has responded to the Buck Showalter taking over, having gone 4-1 since the manager change. If not for a bullpen collapse last game, they would be 5-0. The Sox are a beatable team on the road because their offense is weak (4.3 runs per game). Mark Buerhle, despite good pitching, is just 5-6 on the road this season for this reason. Jeremy Guthrie can match him and I like how he's been pitching of late (2.14 ERA in his last three starts). Baltimore believes that they can win now and I like their chances at home here.
