Orioles Try to Get Back on Track Against Lowly Padres

Posted by Jeff Rudzinski on 5/13/2013 7:49:30 PM

The Baltimore Orioles have had a solid season so far, yet have been showing signs of struggle lately as they dropped games to both the Minnesota Twins and Kansas City Royals last week. Those losses dropped the Orioles down to second in the AL East as they now trail the New York Yankees by one game. The Orioles should have a good chance of contending for that first place spot soon as Chris Tillman will be taking the mound in game one of a two game series against the San Diego Padres.

Although struggling for most of the year the Padres are still ahead of the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NL West standings and have a decent shot at keeping that position as Andrew Cashner, who's sporting a 3.23 ERA, will be taking the mound to counter Tillman. However, in order for the Padres to take advantage of Cashner's consistency on the mound they will have to hit the ball well, something they have had trouble with so far this year.

The Orioles are showing last season wasn't a fluke when they made it to the playoffs as they are now contending in the AL East, one of the toughest divisions in all of baseball. They main reason the Orioles have been winning is because of the league leading 190 runs they have scored as a team through 38 games. They are also in the top ten in many other offensive categories meaning gamblers should look at the over/under run total for this match-up as they Orioles are always a threat to score a lot of runs. To make this game favor the Orioles even more they will have one of their better pitchers on the mound in Tillman who is 3-1 on the year with a 3.76 ERA.

The Padres' pitching staff has struggled most of the year meaning their best bet at covering the sports book set spread is when Cashner is on the mound despite being moved from the bullpen to the starting rotation a month ago. Cashner started the year out in the bullpen for the Padres, but because of injuries to other pitchers he was forced to make the move to the starting rotation where the decision has paid off so far as he is 2-2 as a starter. The Padres' best hope at winning this game starts with Cashner as he will need to shut down the Orioles offense to give the Padres hitters time to try and get on the board against Tillman.

MLB Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

The Baltimore Orioles are the smart and clear spots bet pick for this game as they not only have the better record, but also have a drastically better offense that can score off anyone. Tillman shouldn't have too much trouble limiting this Padres offense that has only one player hitting above .300, which is the reason the Orioles remain my pick to win this game.
