Detroit Tigers vs. Baltimore Orioles Picks, Predictions & Odds

The Baltimore Orioles (76-71) and Detroit Tigers (57-91) will go head-to-head on Wednesday. The Orioles were one of baseball’s best stories through August.

But they have fallen apart in September, and their playoff hopes are fading fast. The Orioles have dropped the first two games of this series against the lackluster Tigers. 

Baltimore needs to turn things around right now if they have any shot of sneaking into the postseason.  Meanwhile, the Tigers are simply looking to finish their dreadful 2022 season on a high note

The first pitch is scheduled for 7:05 PM EST on September 21st, 2022, at Camden Yards in Baltimore, MD. Let’s take a look at the Tigers vs Orioles odds, picks and predictions. 

Detroit Tigers vs. Baltimore Orioles Odds 

When Baltimore players saw the Tigers lined up on the Orioles schedule, they were likely excited. After all, the Tigers stats are downright awful, and their MLB betting odds were certainly not in their favor. But the Tigers have come into Baltimore and taken the first two games of this series. 

Orioles Beating the Odds

Baltimore remains the favorite for Wednesday. Trusting them right now is risky, given their recent string of play. Both the Orioles and Tigers are 4-6 over the course of their last ten games

Let’s take a closer look at the Tigers vs Orioles odds, picks and predictions. 

Tigers vs. Orioles Betting Preview

Matt Manning as Starter

Matt Manning (2-2, 3.28) will start for Detroit, while Jordan Lyles (10-11, 4.70) will get the nod for Baltimore.

This is one of those MLB matchups that seems to bode well for the Tigers. However, Lyles is an established veteran, while Manning has struggled to establish himself in the leagues. 

Manning has enjoyed some success in limited action this year. And the fact of the matter is that he has a high ceiling. But Lyles, despite his lackluster season numbers, may be the more trusted option. 

Jordan Lyles as Starter

With that being said, Lyles has surrendered 12 earned runs over his past two starts. But those outings came against the Blue Jays and Red Sox. The Tigers have one of the worst offenses in the league, so Lyles should fare well. 

Manning’s Recent Efforts

Meanwhile, Manning has surrendered just four total earned runs over the course of his past three starts. The best part of Manning’s recent efforts is what it means for the Tigers. Detroit has to feel like he’s finally putting the pieces together at the big league level. 

Although it may seem unlikely, this matchup of Matt Manning vs. Jordan Lyles could turn into a sneaky pitcher’s duel. 

Detroit Tigers vs. Baltimore Orioles Picks and Predictions

After taking a look at the Tigers vs Orioles odds, picks and predictions, which team should you place your money on? Can the Orioles rebound and cover the spread, or are the Tigers destined for a sweep?

Tigers’ Offense

Matt Manning has undeniably been impressive. And Detroit’s offense has played well in the series.  The Orioles are beginning to crumble and are likely losing confidence. 

However, betting on the Tigers is one of the riskiest propositions you can make. Detroit has struggled in every facet of the game, and it is difficult to trust them. Can they turn it around to upset the odds once again? It is possible. 

Tigers’ as the Underdog

On the season, they are just 69-79 against the run line. They have been better on the road, as they are 37-35 against the run line when playing away from home. As an underdog, the Tigers are 62-62 against the run line. 

Orioles at the MLB Stats

On the other hand, the Orioles are 90-57 against the run line this season. That mark is second in all of baseball, trailing only the Los Angeles Dodgers

Baltimore holds a 44-28 against the run line when playing at home and a 13-16 against the run line mark as a favorite. 

In the end, the Orioles should be able to get the job done on Wednesday. There is some risk involved, but I feel far more confident placing money on Baltimore than Detroit. 

Go ahead and take the Baltimore Orioles -1.5 with your Wednesday MLB betting pick.

MLB Pick: Orioles -1.5 (+125)
