Orioles Have Lost 12 Straight Away From Home

Chris Davis #19 of the Baltimore Orioles reacts after striking out during the seventh inning against the Philadelphia Phillies at Oriole Park at Camden Yards on May 16, 2018 in Baltimore, Maryland.

The Baltimore Orioles looked like they were destined to occupy the basement of the American League East through the first month and a half of the season, but the O’s have fared much better of late and hand the ball to the red-hot Kevin Gausman in the opener of a four-game series with the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park on Thursday. Can the Orioles reverse their road woes? Baltimore has dropped each of its previous 12 road games, with an average losing margin of 3.3 runs.

Xbet opened the Orioles as +153 road underdogs with a total of 9.

  • The Red Sox are 24-8 SU in their last 32 games against right-handed starting pitchers.
  • The Orioles are 0-7 SU and 2-5 ATS in their last seven games on the road against teams with winning records.
  • The total has gone UNDER in seven of the Orioles’ last 10 games against teams with winning records.

David Price is set to counter Gausman on the mound. Price (3-4, 4.89 ERA) had eight days off between his last two starts while getting diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome in that span. The veteran did pick up a triumph in his last start in Toronto on Saturday in 5.1 innings of work. Price has given up 10 runs (nine earned) in 6.2 innings over his last two outings at Fenway.

Gausman (3-2, 3.18) is 3-1 with a 2.30 ERA in his last seven starts. The hurler followed up nine scoreless frames at Oakland two outings ago to pitch 7.1 innings of two-run ball in a win over Tampa Bay on Friday. Gausman owns a 4-6 lifetime record against Boston with a 3.83 ERA.

With Price on the mound in Boston, the Red Sox are cashing UNDERs with ease. The UNDER is 6-2 in Price’s last eight starts in Beantown.
