Orioles vs. Phillies Odds
|Time||7:05 p.m. ET|
The Orioles look to quell their current losing streak, which has extended to three games following Baltimore’s 8-6 loss to the Boston Red Sox on Sunday.
Philadelphia lost 3-2 to the Mets on Sunday but had won four games straight prior to that, including a 17-8 drubbing of the Chicago Cubs.
Baltimore hasn’t put up a grandiose scoring total like that as of late but was the recipient of such a beatdown when the Blue Jays put up an astonishing 22 runs on them in nine innings.
In September, Bryce Harper is batting .362, with seven home runs and 17 RBI.
Harper is also hitting for power more often at home, with a .677 slugging percentage at Citizens Bank Park, nearly 10 percentage points higher than his away numbers.
With a team like the Orioles, who have arguably the worst pitching staff in the majors, struggling heading into a matchup against Harper and his league-leading 1.052 OPS, is this a no-brainer over play?
Or are oddsmakers anticipating that action, resulting in a contrarian under?
