The Baltimore Orioles and Boston Red Sox matchup this Thursday for their season openers in a game between two teams who ere seriously disappointing last year and who will look to bounce back here during the 2021 season.
The Baltimore Orioles are not expected to do much this year, and pundits who say that are probably right, but this Orioles team will not be a pushover this year and I can see them be competitive here with the Red Sox.
Baltimore does have some nice pieces like Anthony Santander who started out quite hot last year before cooling off to finish hitting just above .260 with 11 home runs and it is possible he becomes a central piece to this Orioles team if he is able to sustain production throughout a 162 game season.
John Means is the starter here for the second year in a row for the home opener and although his statistics are a bit muddied, I do believe he is a solid pitcher and think he can put his team in a position to win this game.
Boston Red Sox
For me and a lot of other people the Boston Red Sox are an enigma wrapped in a mystery, as you just do not know if they will be able to bounce back off of that dreadful 2020 season with plenty of flux in terms of the roster, but if they are good they will throw a wrench into many team’s plans in the AL East.
The big name Red Sox fans will be following this year is third basemen Bobby Dalbec who is a star rookie who has hit 7 home runs in the preseason to go along with an average close to .300 and he could make a huge difference to this team if he turns out to be as good as some people are touting.
Nathan Eovaldi gets the start here and he is another guy who can go out their and put the Red Sox in a position to win, as he did have a decent season last year and there is no real reason to think it will be much different here in 2021.

Free Baltimore Orioles vs. Boston Red Sox MLB Prediction:
The Baltimore Orioles are being offered here at a nice plus money price and I think I am going to roll here with Baltimore, as I feel the Red Sox may be getting a bit too much love. The pitching matchup is pretty competitive and I have a ton of questions about this Boston batting lineup, so +145 seems like a perfectly reasonable price here on opening day.
I do also believe we will see a break out performance or two out of a couple of these Orioles batters and we may very well find out who those might be this Thursday in Boston.
