MLB Betting Prediction on Orioles at White Sox this Wednesday
The Baltimore Orioles (31-31) play the third game of their midweek series in Chicago against the White Sox (27-35) on Wednesday night. The Orioles dropped the opener on Monday, 10-7, and have now lost five straight. The White Sox have now won two of three with that victory after a stretch in which they lost five of six. With that in mind, let’s take a closer look at the MLB betting prediction for Wednesday’s matchup.

Why should you bet on the Orioles?
In Dylan Bundy, the Orioles send their steadiest starter to the hill. He did take the loss on Friday against the New York Yankees, but he only surrendered three runs in six innings. This ugly stretch for the Orioles began when they had to make up a game in Washington on Thursday and then headed to Yankee Stadium, where they gave up 38 runs in three games — before giving up ten more to Chicago on Monday. The fact that they put up seven runs on the White Sox on Monday indicates that their bats may be waking up from a stretch in which they just scored eight runs in four games. Behind Bundy, if they can get some early hitting, they should be able to manage the White Sox offense.
Why should you put your money on the White Sox?
The White Sox start Miguel Gonzalez on Wednesday night. In his last start, against Cleveland, he gave out four free passes, and in his last eight starts, he has posted a 1-7 record with a huge 6.56 ERA, permitting 10 home runs over 46 ⅔ innings combined. Those aren’t stellar numbers, but the good news is that Seth Smith and Chris Davis are the only Orioles who have taken Gonzalez out of the yard. Given how charitable the Oriole pitchers have been lately, the White Sox should get some pitches to hit, even if they have to wait for the relievers to come on to get their best hacks.
Betting Pick and Final Score Prediction
Baltimore has not played well lately, but Bundy gives them a chance to stay close late, especially if they can get to Gonzalez. I predict a 6-4 Oriole victory.
