Taijuan Walker (11-4, 4.11 ERA) vs Kyle Gibson (9-6, 4.76 ERA)
After an exceptional month of June where Walker allowed just 6 runs in as many games, the magic finally appears to be slowly disappearing. He’s given up 10 runs over his last 3 starts along with 15 hits. Walker has still been among the most consistent arms on the Phillies this season and this slight step back is hardly concerning, but it is worth noting if you’re planning on betting game totals or individual props.
Kyle Gibson, who played a big part in pushing the Phillies to their 2022 World Series appearance, will be taking the mound for Baltimore in front of the Philadelphia faithful in what promises to be an emotional contest. Since departing the City of Brotherly Love, Gibby has maintained his status as a strong starting pitcher, although he has given up 8 runs and 16 hits over his last 2 games.
Phillies vs Orioles Betting preview
For me, the TOTAL is the play here. It’s an emotional day for Kyle Gibson and he is coming off of two slightly wobbly games. Taijuan Walker has also cooled off somewhat over the past few weeks and this combination should lend itself to a hitter-friendly day at Citizen’s Bank Park. I’ll back the OVER 9.5 runs here.
From the Baltimore’ side of things, Aaron Hicks is .333 against Taijuan Walker in his career, recording 4 hits in 12 at bats. Hicks is -135 to record a hit this evening, so I’ll be adding that to my slip.
If you’re looking for a Phillies hitter to thrive, it’s hard to look past Kyle Schwarber, who once again scored a run last night. It’s his second in as many games and he’s now scored 6 runs in his last 10. He’s -130 to add another to that tally this evening.
