At Camden Yards, Baltimore

Orioles -105 vs Blue Jays (9)

Its a game we previewed in "2 For Tuesday" and still one we like. Only now well go into more detail. Shaun Marcum is making his first start for Toronto since June 18, but it comes against a team he has had success against. Marcum is 1-0 against the Orioles this season with a tidy 1.98 ERA. If you are a believer in streaks, the last four times Toronto has lost, the next game produced a win. The Blue Jays dropped the opener to Baltimore last night.

Garrett Olsen has had nothing but trouble against the Jays, compiling a whopping 18.00 ERA in his last two matchups. Baltimore is on a nice run of late, winning three of its last four games. However, the Birds are just 3-6 against Toronto this season including a 1-2 mark at Camden Yards. With both teams a few games below .500 in the AL East, mediocrity indicates neither side is really able to put together a long win streak. So the underdog price looks nice. BLUE JAYS.
