Orioles vs. Red Sox: Picks, predictions, how to watch Sunday’s game

We go over how to watch Sunday’s game between the Orioles and Red Sox and make some picks.

MLB: Game Two-Baltimore Orioles at Boston Red Sox Brian Fluharty-USA TODAY Sports

The Baltimore Orioles and Boston Red Sox square off on Sunday with first pitch set for 1:35 p.m. ET. The game takes place at Fenway Park in Boston, Massachusetts and will only be available on local TV or through an MLB.tv subscription. Baltimore will be starting Bruce Zimmerman (2-2, 3.78 ERA) while Nick Pivetta (3-4, 4.25 ERA) gets the starting nod for Boston.

Boston (22-25) took Game 1 of yesterday’s doubleheader at Fenway Park, taking down the Orioles in a 5-3 victory. Tied 3-3 in the bottom of the sixth, a Bobby Dalbec homer to right field allowed the Red Sox to pull ahead and they supplemented the lead with another run the following inning.

Baltimore (20-28) was able to respond to the loss later in the evening with a 4-2 victory in Game 2 of the doubleheader. The crux of the damage came in the top of the third when after pushing a run across, Rougned Odor slammed a three-run bomb to center to give the O’s the lead.

Odds, picks & predictions

Run Line: Red Sox -1.5
Run total: 9.5
Moneyline odds: Red Sox -180, Orioles +155

Moneyline pick: Red Sox -180

We’ll go with Boston closing this weekend AL East series out with a victory at home this afternoon. The Sox batters will have a chance to crack O’s starter Bruce Zimmermann, who has been hit for nine earned runs his last two starts.

Player prop pick: Rafael Devers over 1.5 total bases (+105)

Devers is batting .347 for the season and went 4-5 in Game 1 of yesterday’s doubleheader. His fingerprints will be all over this game so expect multiple bases acquired for him today.
