MLB Pick

Baltimore Orioles vs. Oakland Athletics

Friday, July 05, 2024 – 09:40 PM ET at Oakland Coliseum

The AI Model likes the Orioles to earn a 5.6-3.1 victory over the Athletics. In a potential blowout win, taking the Orioles at -185 is valuable.

Oakland Is Embarrassing

The Oakland Athletics have struck out more than 26% of the time against righties over the last 30 days. The lineup has also hit just a .274 wOBA against righties, with only Zach Gelof hitting at a high rate over the last month.

They’ll take on Albert Suarez, who hasn’t been elite. But he’s still held his first 250 batters to a .105 ISO and wOBA of .284 this season. That’ll do.

Hogan Harris Can’t Sustain Success

On the other hand, Hogan Harris will pitch for the Athletics. He’s a lefty who has held righties to a .141 ISO and wOBA of .298 over the last 30 days.

That seems unsustainable. Harris has only struck out 15.2% of righties over the last month and has allowed 38% of fly balls with only 32.4% of ground balls induced. Meanwhile, the Orioles have hit a .204 ISO against lefties over the last month.

You can expect a couple of home runs from this Orioles bunch.

The Pick

Let’s rock with Baltimore at -185. The juice might be high, but so is the value.
