MLB Picks: Baltimore Orioles vs Boston Red Sox
The Red Sox and Orioles have been getting carried by their hitting. This game in my opinion is going to be a slug fest for the Red Sox going against a pitcher who’s ERA is extremely high. And again it’s Patriots’s day in Bean Town and the Red Sox are 66-49 on Patriot’s Day up to 2010.
Pick: Over 11.5 (-110)
