Starting pitchers

Michael Grove vs. Tyler Wells

Wells pitched 12 innings over two starts in July ahead of the All-Star break. He allowed four earned runs and recorded eight strikeouts. Wells has allowed two earned runs per game for his last seven starts, all of which have lasted between five and 6.2 innings.

Grove has not been a consistently good option for the Dodgers this season. He recorded a 6.86 ERA in June, an improvement from his 8.44 in April. Over 10 innings pitched this month, he has allowed five earned runs and recorded nine strikeouts.

Over/Under pick

Wells will likely be able to limit the Dodgers to around two runs (as he has in his last seven starts), and the Baltimore bullpen has been strong this season. The Orioles can take advantage of Grove, but I’m not sure that L.A. adds enough to put this one over the top.

Pick: Under 9.5

Moneyline pick

The Dodgers beat the Orioles, 6-4, in the first game of the series. However, the Orioles should be able to take this one. Their offense has been on fire, and with Wells on the mound for Baltimore, the Dodgers will be very limited. Grove’s inconsistency will be a perfect breeding ground for a big Orioles win.

Pick: Orioles -125
