Baseball Betting: NEW YORK METS at BALTIMORE ORIOLES (8/18)

BASEBALL — August 18

N.Y. METS (deGrom) at BALTIMORE (Gausman)
(America’s Bookie Line: Pick’em -110, Total 7.5) — Interestingly enough, both of these pitchers have some outstanding metrics to show off; deGrom has a 0.87 WHIP ratio on the road, although teams do have a tendency to get more extra base hits against him when he is the visitor. Kevin Gausman has a 0.96 WHIP at Camden Yards, with only one home run allowed in 24 innings. The Mets need deGrom badly to snap them out of their three-game losing streak, and what keeps us off the side is that New York still can’t figure out a way to win on the road on a consistent basis, while Baltimore is 36-20 at home. But we are fine with the total.

PLAY BY JAY: UNDER 7.5 (-110) ***
