The Baltimore Orioles traded away two crucial pieces at the trade deadline in Trey Mancini and Jorge Lopez. Many of the Orioles beat writers believed the Orioles threw in the towel, but they continued to win. They are 10-4 in their last 14 games, and many of those games have been against the American League East. The Orioles have been the most profitable team this season based on a $100 bettor, netting a profit of $2,768. They continually find themselves disrespected in the markets and are typically listed at plus prices on the money line.
The Orioles are just a half a game back from securing a wildcard spot and can thrust themselves onto a slot with a sweep of the flailing Blue Jays. They have been able to withstand the losses at the trade deadline with the outstanding play of Jorge Mateo, Ryan McKenna, and Rougned Odor as of late.
The Blue Jays have lost four straight games against the perennially cellar-dwelling Orioles, and after such a hot start to the 2022 campaign, are struggling to regain the poise that was enjoyed early on.
While the Orioles have been the most profitable team this season, the Blue Jays have trended in the opposite direction. A $100 bettor would be down a whopping $2,109 betting on the Blue Jays. They have dealt with some absent hitting this season coupled with a managerial change mid-season. The expectations could have been higher entering the season, and now the Blue Jays are fighting to remain in one of the three wild card slots available.
Chaos. Baltimore has made shirts, they are winning games, and they have bought into the belief that they are good. Baltimore is good? It is great for baseball, and we love to see it. Every game Baltimore puts into the win column is just more chaos. The American League East was all but locked up by the New York Yankees in the middle of June, but now three teams are hot on their trail with an outside chance of catching the Bronx Bombers to win the division.

For the confident Orioles backer, a $100 wager would return $138 in profit. The Blue Jays at -164 might be a little too expensive, but the run line might be a way to buy back some value. The Blue Jays are -1.5 with a +122 line on the run line. A $100 run line bet on the Blue Jays would net you $122 profit.
FanDuel Sportsbook has a plethora of wagering options that include props, first five innings, live betting, sides, and totals. The total is currently set to nine with the under listed at -122. The over is even money at the time of this article. The total has gone over in five straight games between these two clubs. The over is hitting at a 7-1-1 clip in the last nine meetings in Toronto. The last 26 meetings between the American League rivals have resulted in 18 overs.
Austin Voth will take the mound for the Orioles. While he started in the bullpen at the beginning of the season, his move to the rotation has been exemplary. His ERA is still a bit inflated at 5.34, but he has allowed three earned or fewer in all nine of his starts this season. He likely will not be able to eat up a lot of innings, but the bullpen has been a strong area for the Orioles.
The Blue Jays will counter with Ross Stripling, making his first start since the end of last month. He owns a 3.16 ERA on the season and has allowed three or fewer in all but one of his starts this season. With the big series finale on tap for the Wednesday afternoon slate of MLB, Stripling will look to shut down the chaos of the Orioles.
