Live Betting Odds for MLB: Orioles vs Nationals

Live from Nationals Park in Washington, D.C., it's the Orioles vs the Nationals in another edition of the Beltway Series.

Mid-season is almost upon the MLB and teams are vying to better their position before the All-Star Game.  Since June 16th, 1997 at Camden Yards in Baltimore, the Nationals and the Orioles have had a heated rivalry that has come to known as the Beltway Series.  Although a new series in MLB standards, fans and management in both cities rate this rivalry as one of their favorites and regularly show up at the opposing stadium to cheer for their team.

They have met 61 times since the Beltway began and the Orioles are the leaders by a small margin of 32-29 (reg. season).

This year the Orioles are newly atop the AL East after a few wins and a losing streak by the Toronto Blue Jays opened the top spot. They are 47-40 with a win percentage of .540.  The Orioles play an excellent game on both sides of the field with one of the best defenses in the MLB and a solid lineup of smart hitters that know how to get wood on the ball.  

The Nationals are currently in second place in the NL East but they actually have a slightly better record than the Orioles at 47-39, a win percentage of .547.  Washington has had a new bounce in their step as they have been playing the best baseball of the last few years and feel like they could really be dangerous in the off-season.

The Orioles at home tonight are going with Chris Tillman the big right-hander who is 7-4 with an ERA of 4.21.  The Nationals are throwing Stephen Strasburg, the even bigger right-hander back at the Orioles who is 7-6 with a 3.53 ERA.
