The Baltimore Orioles will look to slow down the Yankee’s charge towards the playoffs this Monday, as the two teams meet up at Yankee Stadium for this AL East showdown.
The Baltimore Orioles have had one of their better stretches of form over the last couple of weeks going 9-5 in their last 14 games and just that alone makes them intriguing at a big plus money price showing they are more then capable of pulling off an upset or two.
This batting lineup actually ranks 19th overall with an average of .237 which is something not many people would have expected, but the Orioles have had several guys have outstanding years with the bat including Cedric Mullins and Trey Mancini.
The Orioles have put plenty of faith in Jorge Lopez this year, and he will once again be called upon in this spot entering this game with a 6.19 ERA and a 2-12 record and although those numbers are pretty brutal he has flashed serious upside this year.
New York Yankees
The Yankees made several moves at the deadline, as they look to make a run at a playoff berth and they have been getting the job done recently winning 6 of their last 8 games and it is tough to not see that continuing with the new additions.
Andrew Heaney is another guy they were able to pick up from the Angels at the deadline and he will head to the hill here in his Yankees debut. Heaney has a 5.27 ERA this year and has really struggled recently, so he will be looking to take advantage of this A+ matchup in order to build some momentum going forward.
It is a bit of a surprise how the Yankees have been going about winning their games, as they have been more lower scoring affairs recently, so it will be interesting to se if the new additions help to jump start this offense.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Orioles are 8-3 in their last 11 games with the total set at 9.0-10.5.
- Orioles are 5-2 in their last 7 road games with the total set at 9.0-10.5.
- Yankees are 0-4 in their last 4 Monday games.
Free Baltimore Orioles vs. New York Yankees MLB Prediction:
This is an awfully good price on the Orioles and I like that we have the opportunity to take them in this spot +1.5 runs, as the Yankees have been playing tight games recently and I am not all that convinced that Heaney will have a great start here.
The Orioles have plenty of right-handed power, and although Lopez’s numbers are not great this year I have seen enough from him to think that he may be able to keep this game close. I do still have some concerns about the depth of this Yankees batting lineup even after the new pickups, as guys like Torres, Gardner or Odor have not really gotten the job done this year.
