How to Bet on the Atlanta Braves vs Baltimore Orioles MLB Odds Prediction & Game Info
Date: Tuesday, July 28th, 2015
Venue: Oriole Park at Camden Yards, Baltimore, Maryland
Opening MLB Odds: Baltimore -146
The Orioles (48-49) have seen their stock falling in recent weeks, and they now find themselves drifting further away from the top of the division. At 7 games back, they have some tough decisions to make, as it really is beginning to look as though their season is reaching the point of no return. They need help in both pitching and hitting, which would mean that a number of deals would need to be swung. The likelihood is that they will instead choose to move some impending free agents, since it really does look as though they are now falling too far off the pace. It will be interesting to see if that changes with a series win over the Braves, as the O’s did gather a little steam by taking the final 2 games in their series with the Tampa Bay Rays. Ubaldo Jimenez (7-6, 3.81 ERA) will start for Baltimore on Tuesday as he tries to break out of a losing skid that has seen him take the loss in 3 of his last 4 starts.
The Braves (46-52) have had trouble generating any offense of late, and you can expect that to get even worse once the trade deadline has passed. They will likely be looking to offload almost all of their key players, as they once again focus on youth and rebuilding. Atlanta has had more different players in the lineup this season than just about any other team, as they constantly call young guys up for a taste of the big leagues. Braves fans knew exactly what to expect this coming season, and no-one believes that any real money is going to be invested in player personnel until such times as the new stadium has been completed. Julio Teheran (6-5, 4.49 ERA) will be on the mound for the Braves on Tuesday night.

Consider This Before Placing Your Bets
It’s tough to see how the Braves are going to win without any real pop in their line-up. Tehran might be able to keep them in it for a while, but I expect the Orioles to wear them down eventually.
