MLB FREE PICK: Angels/Orioles UNDER 7.5

Runs are going to be hard to come by in tonight's showdown between the Angels and Orioles. Two of the American League's top pitchers will be on display.

Los Angeles will send out Jered Weaver, who is 7-1 with a 2.40 ERA and .907 WHIP in 12 starts. Weaver made his first start in a little over three weeks last Wednesday. It was like he never missed a start, as he allowed just two hits in six shutout innings against the Giants.

Baltimore will counter with one of the most underrated pitchers in baseball in Jason Hammel. In 14 starts this season, Hammel is 8-2 with a 2.61 ERA and 1.115 WHIP. He is 4-0 with a 2.02 ERA at home and 2-0 with a 1.57 ERA over his last three.

Expecting these two teams to score at least 8 runs is asking way to much. The UNDER is 13-3 in Angels last 16 road games vs. a team with a winning record and 4-1 in Weavers last 5 starts with the total set at 7.0-8.5. The UNDER is also 7-0 in Orioles last 7 games with the total set at 7.0-8.5. BET THE UNDER!
