The Baltimore Orioles are 7-3 in their last 10 games and have pulled within 1.5 games of the Tampa Bay Rays for the top spot in the AL East.
They can take another step forward in that race today when they take on the Miami Marlins for Game 2 of their interleague series.
Let's dive into the odds for Saturday's game and then I'll break down why the OVER is the play today.
Marlins vs. Orioles odds, run line, and total
Marlins vs. Orioles prediction and pick
You probably already know how good the Orioles offenses has been lately. What you may not know is that the Marlins offense has been almost just as good.
Over the last 30 days, these two teams rank 9th and 10th in the Majors in OPS. They also rank 10th and 11th in total runs scored over the same time frame.
Both offenses will also now face two pitchers who are very gettable. Braxton Garrett allowed three earned runs in each of his last two starts, which could indicate the start of a slump for him. Meanwhile, Kyle Gibson of the Orioles has also not shown his best stuff lately.
He had a 6.84 ERA in June and then followed it up with a 4.15 ERA through his first two starts this month.
Let's keep it simple and root for runs in this interleague showdown on Saturday.
Game odds refresh periodically and are subject to change.
