The Baltimore Orioles made one of the biggest moves of the trade deadline, acquiring righty pitcher, Jack Flaherty, from the St. Louis Cardinals.
He'll make his debut tonight against the Toronto Blue Jays in a game that has all the make up of a pitchers duel.
Let's take a look at the odds for the game and then I'll break down why you should bet the UNDER.
Orioles vs. Blue Jays odds, run line, and total
Orioles vs. Blue Jays prediction and pick
Jack Flaherty, despite coming from a National League team, will be facing the Blue Jays for the second time this season. The first time was in his season debut and he pitched a gem, allowing zero hits and zero earned runs across 5.0 innings pitched.
He faced Kevin Gausman in that game as well, who also allowed zero earned runs in 6.0 innings pitched.
I see no reason to believe we won't see a similar performance tonight when these two teams face each other for the second time this season.
Let's also consider that both of these offenses have struggled more than you might think over the past 14 days. During that span, the Blue Jays are 10th in OPS at .771 and the Orioles are 27th at .648.
Let's not overthink this game. With two fantastic pitchers going to war, let's sit back and root for strong pitching and strong defense.
