Orioles vs. Red Sox Betting Pick, DFS Plays – April 18

Gambling911.com has your Orioles vs. Red Sox betting pick and DFS plays for Saturday afternoon April 18.

Best Bets: UNDER 8.5

Best DFS Picks: Clay Buchholz

PITCHING MATCHUP: Orioles RH Chris Tillman (1-1, 7.71 ERA) vs. Red Sox RH Clay Buchholz (1-1, 7.84)

Betting Line: Red Sox -134, Orioles +124, Total: 8.5

Buckholz has only allowed 25 hits on 113 at bats versus the current Orioles roster, making him a decent option as a second pitcher for one’s daily fantasy roster.  He’s priced right at $6.8K.  Some might be wary of Buckolz and his inconsistencies but, coming off a disastrous loss, Gambling911.com believes he will be on his A Game today.  

Tillman has also performed well against the Red Sox and is also coming off a loss following a stellar opener.  He has a 7-3 record with a 2.69 ERA in 16 career starts against Boston.

Five of the last seven games in this series have gone UNDER the current total.

The Orioles 1B Steve Pearce is 0-for-12 in the last three games to drop to .143.
