Los Angeles Angels vs. Baltimore Orioles Pick & Odds: June 27th 2012
Los Angeles Angels vs. Baltimore Orioles
Pick: Los Angeles Angels -125 odds (June 27th 2012)
Jerred Weaver is getting great odds here and the reason is he has a 4.21 ERA away, but take away his disaster start in Arlington vs. the best hitting team in the league and he has a 2.45 ERA on the road this year. He’s coming off a start in which he only pitched 78 pitches off the DL and was great. He’s got great numbers vs. the Orioles as they collectively have 124 AB .194 average and .601 OPS and without Nick Markakis in the line up their offense is sinking fast and so is Adam Jones. The Orioles are now 24th in OPS vs. RHP and they have a .166 average with 2.30 runs per 9 over their last 10 vs. RHP. In the month of June the Angels are #2 with a .824 OPS while the Orioles are 28th .652.
Now they do get their stud pitcher in Jason Hammel going tonight however Hammel has had success of late (1.57 ERA over last 3 starts) against National League teams – Phillies, Braves, and the Nationals. None of which possess a lineup like the Angels. -Freddy Wills
