Total: 8.50 | -113.00 Under
Both teams have been playing to several higher-scoring games of late, but I expect those trends to end this evening.
Detroit is off the 11-0 win here yesterday and it's seen the total go OVER the number in two straight, while Baltimore has now lost three of its last four, while having seen the total go OVER in three straight.
The Orioles though have seen the total go UNDER the number in five of their last six after playing to three or more straight OVERS in a row, and in ten of their last 14 in trying to avenge a shutout home loss against an opponent.
The home side turns to Austin Voth to stop the bleeding, and he's 5-2 with a 4.36 ERA.
The visitors counter with Joey Wentz, who is 1-3 with a 4.15 ERA. The rookie won his other road start in Kansas City earlier this month.
The situation and the numbers/trends all point to today's total staying well UNDER the posted number.
Good luck, NP
