Baltimore Orioles vs Kansas City Royals 5/3/2023 Previews, Odds and Picks

The Baltimore Orioles and the Kansas City Royals as they face off for the second game of their three-game series tonight at 7:40 PM EST in Kansas City. Despite the Royals currently sitting in last place in the AL Central Division, this game is sure to be an intense battle with two skilled pitchers taking the mound. Orioles’ righty Kyle Gibson, who has yet to suffer a loss this season, will go up against Royals’ veteran righty Zack Greinke, who is still searching for his first win of the season.

The Orioles are heading into May with a hot streak, winning six straight series overall and having their best April in over a decade. However, they are facing tough competition from division rival Tampa Bay for the top spot in the American League. In last night’s game, the Orioles had a slow start, falling behind 3-0, but they quickly regained their momentum and hammered out 11 runs and 15 hits to take home the win. Ryan Mountcastle was the standout player of the night, hitting two homers and scoring three runs, leading the Orioles to their 20th win of the season. Tyler Wells also put on an impressive performance, overcoming a rough start to pitch six innings and only allowing three hits and four runs to earn the victory.

  • Baltimore is 6-1 SU in its last 7 games on the road
  • Baltimore is 11-2 SU in its last 13 games
  • The Orioles are 26-56 in their last 82 Wednesday games and 6-1 in their last 7 road games.

The Royals have had a tough start to the season, with injuries to their pitchers and poor performance. They have only six wins so far, and they’ve been terrible at home with a 1-12 record. They lost 11-7 to the Orioles on Tuesday night, despite early homers from Witt Jr. and Melendez. Perez hit two homers for the Royals, but it wasn’t enough to stop the Orioles’ offense. 

The Royals will try to bounce back in game two of the series, with Greinke on the mound. Greinke has been having a rough season, with no wins and an ERA of 6.10. He’s given up 39 hits and seven homers in 31 innings. He’s done better at home, with an ERA of 3.63 and only one homer allowed in three starts. But he’s also been hit hard by batters, with a career-high hard-hit rate of 43%. He faced the Orioles last season and gave up ten hits and two runs in 5.2 innings, getting a no-decision.

  • The total went OVER in 9 of Kansas City’s last 11 games at home against the Orioles.
  • Kansas City is 18-7 SU in its last 25 games at home against Baltimore
  • The Royals are 3-13 in their last 16 home games and 16-37 in their last 53 overall.

Baltimore Orioles vs Kansas City Royals. The MLB pick for this game is the Baltimore Orioles. The Kansas City Royals are dealing with a significant challenge as they are missing two important starters, Kris Bubic and Daniel Lynch. In contrast, the Baltimore Orioles have a dependable offense and are supported by the consistent pitching of Kyle Gibson. However, the Royals are struggling to score runs, and their experienced pitcher, Zack Greinke, is not performing up to his usual standards at the age of 39. Given these circumstances, it could be argued that the Orioles are being underestimated as favorites in this game. It’s possible that the Orioles could win by a score of 7-3, but only time will tell.
