Orioles vs. Rangers MLB Betting Odds

Baltimore has struggled on the road lately, as they are 5-14 in their last 19 games away from the friendly confines of Orioles Park at Camden Yards. Their past nine games overall have been particularly dismal as the club is 3-6 with a 9.00 team ERA.

Texas has been up and down of late as they are 8-7 in their last 15 games and they just lost two of three games to the lowly Florida Marlins. Overall the Rangers are 24-18 in home games during the 2011 MLB season.

Despite having a full 15 game slate to choose from, nothing really jumped of the page at us today. We went with this game primarily because of the pitching match-up, the Orioles record on the road, and the fact that the Rangers are simply the better team.
