Why The Guardians Could Cover The Spread
Quantrill has not been pitching bad. He has been able to lower his ERA in the month of May, despite a rough outing last time he pitched. Taking out his last performance, Quantrill has 26 innings pitched in may, 19 hits allowed, 14 strikeouts to seven walks, and an ERA of 2.77. His last start against the Chicago White Sox was rough as he gave up six runs in four innings of work. However, you can not discredit what he has been able to do this month. If Quantrill can go back to pitching how he did in his first four starts in May, the Guardians will cover this spread.
Why The Orioles Could Cover The Spread
Gibson is coming off a solid outing as he went seven shutout innings against the New York Yankees. He is not the biggest strikeout pitcher, but he does induce weak contact and finds ways to get hitters out. In his last two outings against the Yankees and Toronto Blue Jays, Gibson has pitched 14 innings, allowed seven hits and just one run while striking out eight. He has put together a couple of really impressive starts in a row, so if he keeps that up, the Orioles will cover this spread.
The Guardians are not good offensively. They rank bottom-5 in a lot of categories. Cleveland has scored the least amount of runs in the MLB, hit the least amount of home runs, they have the worst OPS, and third worst batting average. The Guardians have not been able to figure it out at the plate and there is no reason to believe they will in this game. Gibson does not have to worry about the long ball, or extra base hits for that matter, so he should have a lot of confidence and be able to repeat what he has done his last two times out.
Final Guardians-Orioles Prediction & Pick
The Guardians struggle at the plate and Gibson has been pitching well lately. Do not over think this one. The Orioles should cover this spread and win the game.
Final Guardians-Orioles Prediction & Pick: Orioles -1.5 (+136), Under 9 (-118)
