This is a big series for both teams. Both teams come in struggling on losing streaks and they are fighting for their respective playoff lives.
The Baltimore Orioles are trying to stay within the wild card bubble and leapfrog the Boston Red Sox for the first wild card spot.
At the same time they have their eye on the AL East title that is currently being held by the Toronto Blue Jays.
The Houston Astros, meanwhile, are trying to catch the Texas Rangers, but realistically that probably won’t happen.
So, they’ll try and nab one of those wild card spots that are currently being possessed by the two AL East teams.
It’s been a year of runs for the Houston Astros. They started off in extremely poor shape, but they eventually fought a their way back to be a winning ball club.
Currently, they are still two games over .500, however, they are in the middle of a four game losing streak after they won four games in a row which came on the heels of them losing 11 of 14 games.
On the mound will be Collin McHugh who has pitched well his last three outings.
Unfortunately, he has been saddled with tough luck losses in all three games, but if he goes 6+ innings and only allows 3 runs – like he has done these past three games – he’ll have done his job.
The Baltimore Orioles are trying to keep that final wild card spot holding off the likes of the Detroit Tigers, Seattle Mariners and the Houston Astros.
A series win will go a long way in doing that and trying to leapfrog pass the Boston Red Sox and Toronto Blue Jays in the AL East.
On the mound will be Wade Miley who has been bad all season long and he hasn’t fared any better with a Baltimore Orioles jersey on. Miley has allowed 12 earned runs in 15 1/3 innings pitched.

Free Houston Astros vs. Baltimore Orioles MLB Prediction:
This should be an interesting game and a fun series to watch. Overall, I like the Astros in this one. McHugh has been pitching decently and the Astros offense should get going with Miley going for the Orioles.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Houston Astros +110
I like the Astros in this one. I feel they should be the slight favorites, but they come in as slight underdogs. The value is solid enough and I just don’t trust Miley.
The over is a decent play as well as I believe the Astros will score a bit and the Orioles will score their fair share, as well.
