Baltimore Orioles (85-51) vs. Los Angeles Angels (64-73)

Baltimore Orioles vs. Los Angeles Angels 9/4/23 – Tonight’s match between the Baltimore Orioles (85-51) and Los Angeles Angels (64-73) could prove pivotal for both clubs as we near postseason playoffs. Orioles currently leads with one of the best records in baseball while Los Angeles Angels are struggling at nine games under.500.


The Orioles have been nothing short of spectacular this season, boasting an astounding.256 team batting average with 680 runs scored and 158 homers to solidify themselves as one of the premier American League clubs. Furthermore, their pitchers have excelled with an ERA of 4.04 while their defense has shown great promise with an 1.26 WHIP mark.

Grayson Rodriguez (4-3, 5.03 ERA) vs. Kenny Rosenberg (0-0, 6.43 ERA)

Grayson Rodriguez is an exceptional young arm with great potential and talent who has established himself in 93 innings pitched so far with an acceptable 5.03 ERA. However, to truly comprehend his impactful contribution it’s necessary to look behind these numbers. Rodriguez stands out for his impressive strikeout rate; striking out 97 batters over 12 innings shows promise in this area and bodes well for his ability to disrupt opposition hitters’ rhythm and get himself out of jams. His WHIP of 1.35 is an important indicator; it indicates that he has permitted too many runners to reach base through hits or walks. But it should not be too alarming when compared with league average and is far preferable than his counterpart on the Angels.


Kenny Rosenberg of the Angels is something of a mystery given his limited experience at Major League level. So far he has only pitched 7 innings; we do know, however, that his debut in MLB hasn’t gone particularly well. An ERA of 6.43 coupled with an astounding WHIP of 2.29 indicates significant issues that cannot be ignored despite being from such a short sample size. Rosenberg’s control appears to be particularly concerning as he issued 7 walks during 7 innings pitched so far. That equates to almost one free pass per inning for Baltimore Orioles pitcher Aaron Sanchez and could lead to runs being scored on. Furthermore, with their powerful lineup, these hits could easily cause considerable damage.


MLB Odds/Point Spread: Los Angeles Angels +162, Total Odds: 9

The Orioles have a Moneyline of -177 and an expected spread of -1.5 at odds of -115, while their opponent, the Angels have a Moneyline of +162. With an over/under of 9 runs set for this matchup.


Baltimore Orioles Betting Trends

Baltimore has been on an incredible winning streak lately, posting 11-4 SU over their last 15 games and an outstanding 10-3 mark against the Angels. Furthermore, their road play has been exceptional as they’ve gone 5-1 SU over their past six away contests. Furthermore, four out of Baltimore’s last five total games went over as bettors have found opportunity in betting overs.


Los Angeles Angels Betting Trends

The Angels have gone winless in six of their last seven games overall and 1-6 at home recently. Most of their recent home games against Baltimore went OVER; 9 out of 12 in fact. Given these statistics, finding value betting against them may require considering an over in terms of total games played versus over total bets.


Baltimore Orioles vs. Los Angeles Angels 9/4/23 Betting Picks

Under examination of team performance, betting trends, and starting pitchers Grayson Rodriguez seems more reliable than Kenny Rosenberg while Baltimore’s recent form is far superior to that of the Angels.


Therefore, I suggest betting on Baltimore at a Moneyline of -177 and taking a spread of -1.5 at -115. Given both teams’ recent histories, going for an Over/Under total at 9 may also prove wise. For more betting insights, check out free daily sports picks.
