Sports Chat Place

The staff at Sports Chat Place is picking the upset here, as they're taking the Baltimore Orioles to win outright. They argue that the Orioles' offense has performed really well when Andrew Cashner is on the mound, which could help them secure a victory.

Tony's Picks

On the other hand, Tony Tellez is picking the Tampa Bay Rays to win outright. Tony cites the Rays' impressive record against the Orioles (5-0 in their last five against Baltimore), as the reason he's picking Tampa Bay in this one.

Finally, the team at Picks and Parlays is taking the Rays to win by a final score of 4-1, so they're taking Tampa Bay to cover the spread as well. Picks and Parlays points to Tampa Bay winning 13 of its last 16 home games against Baltimore.
