Orioles Season Winding Down

We’re officially into September which means the MLB season is drawing to a close. There’s still plenty of ball left to play with baseball’s biggest prize still up for grabs. The World Series kicks off in October. Brandon Hyde will take his men to Boston at the end of the month where their campaign will finish against the Red Sox.

It’s been a season of ups and downs for the Orioles. They’ve experienced the joy of huge wins and the despair of crushing defeats. The team has learned plenty of valuable lessons along the way which they can use to improve their game next season.

They’ll be desperate to hold on to Jonathan Villar during the winter. The former Houston Astros and Milwaukee Brewers player has been the standout performer for the O’s this year. He’s scored dozens of runs and was among the best players in MLB rankings during September.

Can he lead his team to a few more victories before the curtain closes on the O’s season at Fenway Park? We’re going to look at Orioles remaining fixtures and highlight the games where we think they can pick up points. If you’re betting on baseball over the next few weeks, check out our analysis before you start.

 

Games to Avoid

Los Angeles Dodgers – According to Bets.com.au, the Dodgers are among the favorites to win the World Series. Many punters and analysts are tipping LA to win their first title since 1988. This is bad news for the O’s who still have to entertain the Dodgers three times at Oriole Park in September. However, if Brandon Hyde can get his key men firing, it might be a respectable score.

Boston Red Sox – The Orioles’ last few games of the season will take place at Fenway Park against the current world champions. What’s more, the O’s met the Red Sox three times in August and lost convincingly on all three occasions. If recent results are anything to go by, we’d avoid this one at all costs.

 

Games to Target

Toronto Blue Jays – Baltimore turned the Blue Jays over a couple of times last month. They also lost two games, but their ability to win twice shows that they can get the job done. There are plenty of games left to play between now and then, but if the O’s can pick up a few wins, they’ll fancy their chances.

Seattle Mariners – The last time these teams met was in June. The Mariners won the mini-series 3-1, but the Orioles managed to snatch an 8-4 victory in the third game. Despite losing three games, they performed well and will back themselves to win when they’re playing on home soil.

Texas Rangers – The Rangers picked up most of the runs when they last met the O’s. However, three of the games were won by just a one-run margin. If Villar maintains his form, we think that Baltimore can pick up the spoils this time around.
