Sports betting fans were shocked at the fast start the Baltimore Orioles had to the 2011 season. When the first month of MLB betting was over, the Orioles looked unbeatable in the AL East. But as time went by, the Orioles started to fall deeper and deeper into the AL East basement. The Toronto Blue Jays have been moving up and down the sportsbook promo MLB standings all season long, but they were never really a threat to win the AL East. It is not easy getting into the MLB news when you play in the same division as the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees. The Toronto Blue Jays and Baltimore Orioles will be spending the rest of this season evaluating talent to try and compete in 2012.

American League Series Betting Pick:

Baltimore Orioles @ Toronto Blue Jays - Tuesday, July 26 – 7:07 PM ET

Pitching  has been a huge problem for the Orioles this season, and one example of a starter that cannot seem to get his game around is the starter for this game – Jake Arrieta. Arrieta is 9-7 on the season, but his 5.02 ERA tells the full story of a pitcher that is not performing. He is 1-4 in his last six starts, and he has given up five earned runs in two of those games. In his last start, Arrieta was able to hold the Boston Red Sox to only three runs in seven innings, but he still lost the game.

The Blue Jays will send Brandon Morrow to the mound, and Morrow has been on a roll lately. He is 5-0 in his last seven starts, and that stretch includes wins over the New York Yankees, Boston Red Sox and Pittsburgh Pirates. He is showing a lot of promise for the future, and Morrow should be more than the Orioles can handle in this game.

Baltimore Orioles @ Toronto Blue Jays – Wednesday, July 27 – 7:07 PM ET

This game is definitely not going to be a pitchers’ duel. The team with the best offense will win this one. Starting on the mound for the Orioles is one of those prospects for next season that they will look at named Alfredo Simon. Simon is 2-3 on the season with a 4.08 ERA. He has spent most of his four-year MLB career in the bullpen, but Baltimore is desperately looking for answers in their starting rotation. He is 1-1 in his last two starts, but he has looked good. He allowed two runs to the Indians in seven innings and two runs to the Angels in six and two-thirds.

The Jays send the struggling Ricky Romero to the mound. He 1-4 in his last six starts, and has given up 13 earned runs in his last three games. This is the worst season of Romero’s three-year career, but he still has time to turn it around. The Jays are the team with the offense in this series, and that is why they will take this game.

Baltimore Orioles @ Toronto Blue Jays – Thursday, July 28 – 7:07 PM ET

This will be another interesting pitching battle as the Orioles put Brad Bergesen on the mound only a couple of weeks after Bergesen regained his spot in the starting rotation that he lost earlier in the season. Bergesen is 2-6 on the season with a 5.54 ERA. He did show some promise in his most recent start which was a win over the Angels where he pitched six innings and only allowed two runs. But Bergesen was chased by the Red Sox in the start prior to that one after giving up four runs in five innings. He is still inconsistent and that will be a problem against a powerful offense like the Blue Jays.

Carlos Villanueva starts for the Blue Jays, and Villanueva has not been the picture of consistency lately either. But his track record shows that he is improving slowly. In his most recent start, he went five and two-thirds innings against the Rangers and gave up only three runs. For the season, Villanueva is 5-2 with a respectable 3.40 ERA. He will cap off the sweep for the Toronto Blue Jays in this series.
