Analysis

Baltimore Orioles Total BAL Orioles - Over 4.5 (+105) P Sandoval (LHP) Must Start…(3%)

I'm starting this season right where I finished last year: betting team totals. Team totals are a great way to avoid laying bad prices, to just worry about one team's offence, and to not worry about the full game win/loss result. The Orioles had the sixth-best road record in the majors last year, finishing 49-32 at their home park. They open up their 2024 campaign against the L.A. Angels, two teams with many different expectations for the season.

On the season in 2023, the O's ranked #7 in runs & #10 in slugging percentage. On top of having a balanced lineup, they have a great mix of experience and youth, including Henderson, the Orioles first rookie of the year since 1989. 

The Orioles will face Patrick Sandoval, a pitcher who struggled with consistency and had quite the disaster of spring training for someone trying to get back on track. Sandoval had 28 appearances last season. He compiled a 7-13 record with a 4.11 ERA and a 1.514 WHIP. SPRING TRAINING = 11.1 innings, 9 Earned Runs & gave up two homers. 

These teams last met back in September, and the Orioles scored 6, 5 and 10 runs in their three-game series. I expect a one-sided contest on opening day when the Orioles face a sub-par pitcher and a below-average bullpen. 

Play the TEAM TOTAL OVER for the O's.
