My analysis
Is this Baltimore Orioles lineup one of the best in baseball? Absolutely, maybe the best, but Tanner Bibee is well-equipped to slow them down. The best asset of Bibee's game is his ability to induce soft contact.

Bibee ranks in the Top 20% of baseball in hard-hit rate and average exit velocity. Even better, his breaking ball stuff has been elite. The slider and changeup have produced a batting average below .200 and whiff rates above 35%. That's significant against the O's, given their roster sees some slash numbers drop when facing a breaking-ball pitcher.

Outside of the ability to produce soft contact, Bibee will have success producing whiffs. It's another strength in his game and can be used today. This goes back to the breaking ball conversation. In most scenarios, the O's have four or five players with a whiff rate above 30% against Bibee's best two pitches.

Fading Baltimore's offense can be a scary endeavour. However, the strengths in Bibee's pitching align perfectly with either the weaknesses of the Orioles or nullifying their strengths. I'm on this best bet with confidence, given a nearly 20% projected edge against this number, albeit that may be bullish.

Guardians vs Orioles same-game parlay (SGP)

Bibee Under 2.5 earned runs allowed

Jordan Westburg Under 1.5 bases

Anthony Santander to get a hit

Jordan Westburg leads all Baltimore hitters in whiff rate and has been horrific this season against the breaking ball, as best indicated by a .129 batting average against the changeup.

I expect him to get three looks against Bibee, given I have him having success and going deep into this game. Thus, I expect him to struggle. That same logic holds for Anthony Santander. I think the price of him getting a hit is a bit cheap today considering he doesn't swing and miss much.
