Baltimore Orioles (Bud Norris) +160
Boston Red Sox (John Lackey) -170
The Red Sox dominated last night’s game, winning 13-2 thanks to a huge night for OF Shane Victorino. Can that really be counted upon to continue over the course of tonight? We really don’t believe so. RHP John Lackey is going to be on the bump for Boston, and he has consistently been pitching fairly well over the course of his last several starts. However, the team hasn’t been picking him up all that much, and he does have a few losses as relatively big favorites, most notably as a -191 favorite against the Houston Astros. Ironically, the man that came over from Houston, RHP Bud Norris is going to be the man that is opposing him in this one. Norris in total is only 9-10 on the season with a 4.22 ERA and a woeful 1.47 WHIP, and he really hasn’t quite gotten into his own groove yet as a starter for the Orioles. He allowed seven runs in 4.2 innings of work in his last outing against the Oakland A’s, but going on the road might be the best thing for him. In his two outings away from Camden Yards since the trade, Norris has allowed just a total of three runs in 11 innings of work. If he can allow three runs over six innings or so tonight, we think the MLB odds are great on Baltimore taking this one.
