Orioles vs Tigers Playoff Odds

tigers-orioles-aldsThe first of the American League Divisional Series begins on Thursday evening at Camden Yards as the Baltimore Orioles play host to the Detroit Tigers.

This ALDS matchup is sure to be a compelling one as it features the stellar pitching of the Tigers versus the lethal batting lineup of the Orioles.  With a pitching staff that includes David Price, Max Scherzer and Justin Verlander, it’s easy to see why the Tigers are actually considered the favourites to win the series.  Bet365 Canada has Detroit paying (1.68) to win the series, while the higher ranked Orioles are the underdogs in this one paying a juicy (2.25) to win the five game set.

The Baltimore Orioles have been a dominating team all season long both on the road and at home, and they will look to continue that trend in the post-season riding an offense that scored the eighth most runs this season and led the league in home runs with a remarkable 211, twenty five more than the next closest team.  Last years free agent prize OF Nelson Cruz led the majors with 40 homers.  Last season it was another Oriole leading the majors in homers, as 1B Chris Davis hit 53 to go along with his MLB league leading 138 RBI.

One thing that should not be forgotten when handicapping the series is the fact that though the Tigers are considered one of the best pitching staffs in all of baseball, they also have arguably the best MLB hitter of all time on their active roster.  All world 1B Miguel Cabrera is the reigning AL MVP and the first triple crown winner in decades.  He also seems to have a knack for coming up clutch in October.  The Tigers also made the dubious trade last offseason acquiring 2B Ian Kinsler from the Texas Rangers while shipping out hefty slugging 1B Prince Fielder.

The Game 1 starting pitching will feature Cy Young hopeful Max Scherzer for Detroit, while Baltimore will counter with Chris Tillman.  Bet365 has the series opener slightly favouring Detroit and is paying (1.89) while the O’s are paying (2.02)
