The Baltimore Orioles and Houston Astros open a three-game series starting in Texas on Monday.
This series may offer one of the biggest record disparities between each team we will see all season.
Baltimore, currently sits at 24-54 which is the worst record among all AL teams and the 2nd worst record in the MLB. Meanwhile, Houston is on the opposite end of the spectrum at 48-30, which is the best record in the AL and 2nd best overall record in the MLB.
Houston is 7-3 in the last 10 meetings between these teams.
Baltimore managed just seven hits in a 5-2 loss to Toronto on Sunday. The Orioles are 1-8 in their last 9 games, and it has been a struggling offense that has been the culprit. They have scored just 13 runs total during the 7 of their last 9 games.
At 24-54, Baltimore finds themselves at the bottom of the AL East, 23 games back from the division leading Boston Red Sox. The Orioles record also places them as the worst team in the American League.
Baltimore is led by first baseman Trey Mancini with 14 homers and 52 RBI’s. DH Ryan Mountcastle follows right behind with 13 homers and 42 RBI’s. Mountcastle has reached base in each of his last 4 games and has hit .341 with 8 home runs, 21 RBI’s and 14 runs across 23 games in June.
Detroit scored a walk-off run in the bottom of the 10th inning to defeat the Astros on Sunday, 2-1. Houston lost two of the last three games in this series, but have been playing exceptionally well of late, going 19-6 in June. That includes an 11 game winning streak.
Houston has had a great season thus far, as they sit at 48-30 and 2 games ahead of the Oakland Athletics for the AL West lead.
Houston is led by second baseman José Altuve with 17 homers and 41 RBI’s. The infielder is hitting .292. Double-play partner Carlos Correa is hitting .303 with 15 homers and 49 RBI’s.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:

- Astros are 48-30 overall
- Astros are 26-13 at home
- Astros are 24-5 in their last 29 games against the Orioles
Baltimore Orioles vs. Houston Astros MLB Prediction:
This will be a battle between the team with the best run differential in baseball against the team with the worst run differential in baseball. The Astros have dominated the Orioles of late, going 24-5 in the last 29 meetings.
With Houston being the overwhelming favorite the line is a little too large to offer a solid return. I’d parlay the ML with the under 9.5 as Baltimore has not hit the ball great and Greinke remains one of the best pitchers in baseball and should have no trouble.
Astros will win this game easily.
