Normally, when teams face the Baltimore Orioles, they hope the series would never end. While the St. Louis Cardinals have been successful in this series, the Orioles are no longer the easy sweep they once were.

At 35-41, the Orioles have had a competitive season that can make long beleaguered fans hopeful for the future. With an offense that ranks nearly in the top third in all of baseball in batting average, on base percentage, and slugging percentage, the Orioles can put men on base. Ranking just 21st in runs scored, however, indicates the inability to drive those men in, a skill that needs to be developed by their youngsters in the lineup.

The weakness of this Orioles squad has been their pitching, which ranks in the bottom five in ERA, quality starts, WHIP, and batting average allowed.

Trying to reverse that trend in this one will be 24 year old lefty Brian Matusz. In his five starts this year, Matusz has gotten progressively worse. In his first start he gave up only one earned, then two in his second start, four each in his third and fourth starts, and finally six earned last Saturday against the Reds.

Matusz can only hope that trend starts sliding back down, or he may not have many more starts left in his future.

For St. Louis, the pitching prospects are slightly more respectable. Starting on Thursday will be Jake Westbrook, who holds a 6-4 record despite his ugly 5.32 ERA. After giving up four earned runs in each of his last three games, Westbrook hopes to put a lower number up on the scoreboard, and get his ERA to drop back to respectable levels.

When choosing this game for your MLB baseball betting, keep in mind some of the key trends. Over the last two season, St. Louis is a middling 69-67 against the money line when facing a team with a losing record. However, on the year, Baltimore is 9-22 against the money line when facing a team with a winning record.

With numbers like that, it would seem the Cardinals are the team to take here, despite the improved Baltimore offense.
