Baltimore Orioles vs Cleveland Guardians Prediction

I’m on the Orioles here. I know it’s tempting to take the Guardians at this kind of plus price given their current win streak, but Carlos Carrasco has been so hard to stomach backing on the road this season as he has had a tendency to get lit up more often than not. The Orioles are just another team going through a slump right now, but they’re also a far better team than what they’ve shown during this slide and we started to see glimmers of it in Tuesday’s loss. I think the O’s avoid the sweep and tee off on Carrasco here. Give me the Orioles.
