LA Angels vs. Baltimore,

Score: 13 - 1
Point Spread: +1½/-145 Baltimore
5* MLB *BEST BET* on Orioles +1.5 -145
The Orioles are showing some nice value catching 1.5 runs at this price.
Weaver hasn't been as sharp on the road where he has an ERA of 4.21 and the Angels have split his 6 starts. Consider that L.A. is 0-4 in his last 4 road starts versus a team with a winning record.
The Orioles are 7-2 in their last 9 home games and 14-5 in their last 19 in the 2nd game of a series. They are also in good hands with Hammel on the hill. They have won 11 of his 14 starts on the season, and he has been lights out at home (2.02 ERA).
The Orioles are 4-0 in Hammel's last 4 starts, 3-0 in his last 3 home starts and 5-0 in his last 5 starts in the 2nd game of a series.
Hamels clearly isn't getting the respect he deserves here. We'll bet Baltimore on the run line.
