Kansas City Royals vs Baltimore Orioles Game 1 Predictions 5/8/2022

 

If the Baltimore Orioles win Game 1, they will extend their winning run to a season-high three games. On Wednesday, the Orioles defeated the Twins 9-4, then on Thursday, they defeated them 5-3. They won four of their past six games overall and are now 7-6 at home.

 

The Orioles’ offense ranks 26th in the league, scoring 2.5 runs per game, 22nd in team batting average (.225), and 25th in home runs per game (0.8).

 

Ryan Mountcastle, Austin Hays, and Anthony Santander have 12 RBI. Mountcastle also has a team-high four home runs, tied with Cedric Mullins. With 7 stolen bases, Jorge Mateo leads the club and is tied for second in MLB.

 

With a 3.85 ERA, Baltimore’s pitching rotation ranks 19th in MLB. In Game 1, Jordan Lyles might get his team-leading sixth start of the season. Lyles has a 2-2 record and a 1.62 WHIP. Lyles is 1-0 with a 1.59 ERA in two appearances at home.

 

Tyler Wells, who is 0-2 with a 4.50 ERA and 1.22 WHIP, may possibly start the opener. In two home appearances, Well is 0-2 with a 1.00 ERA.

 

  • The Baltimore Orioles are 4-2 SU in their previous 6 matches.

Kansas City Royals vs Baltimore Orioles. The MLB pick for this game is the Baltimore Orioles. This year, the Orioles have the third-best team ERA at home, while the Royals are 23rd with a 4.50 ERA on the road.

 

The Orioles gained four of their previous six home matches, and I anticipate that trend to continue against a Royals lineup that is struggling.

 

The Royals also dropped 13 of their past 17 matches in Baltimore and five of their last six matches against a team with a winning percentage of less than.400. I’ll take the Orioles. The Baltimore Orioles will win to a predicted score of 5-2.
