The New York Yankees will be hungry to bounce back off of a brutal first game to this series as they once again play the Baltimore Orioles in the Bronx for this important AL East matchup.
The Baltimore Orioles and Jorge Lopez were able to completely shutdown this new and exciting Yankees batting lineup, as they picked up the first game of this series 7-1 in what was probably the biggest shock result of the entire day.
The one thing about this Baltimore team is that their batting lineup is no joke, as they have guys like Cedric Mullins and Trey Mancini who have been getting the job done all year and now some guys who are coming on strong in the latter half of the season like Ryan Mountcastle who now looks to be a nice find.
Much like with Jorge Lopez, the Orioles will once again be at a disadvantage on the mound, as Harvey comes into this game with a 6.20 ERA and a 6-10 record. The thing with Harvey in this spot, though, is that he has been great in his last three games giving up zero runs, and he has been pitching great against the Yankees only allowing them to hit .181 against him, so he may give the Orioles a chance to once again pull off an upset.
New York Yankees
The Yankees are in a tight race for the AL East where they sit 7 games back of the Rays, so they will really be looking to win games against teams like the Orioles in order to make up some ground in the division.
New York just lost Gerrit Cole for testing positive for Covid, so they may be without their ace for the next one to two weeks which is not exactly helping matters, but they just revamped this batting lineup, so they will need to pick up the slack if they need to have a couple of bullpen games.
Jameson Taillon gets the call to the mound for this one and he has been awfully impressive as of late only allowing 3 runs in his last 3 games and he had to pitch against some great offenses like the Boston Red Sox during that span, so he should be able to find success against a team like Baltimore who he has pitched well against in the past.

Free Baltimore Orioles vs. New York Yankees MLB Prediction:
This total looks pretty high at the moment as it sits at 9.5, as I can see both of these pitchers finding some success and it is not exactly like this new Yankees batting attack has gone on some tear, so I am a bit skeptical of them putting up more then 5 runs here.
Matt Harvey has pitched great against the Orioles and Jameson Taillon has looked excellent in recent times, so I really would have had this total in the 8.5 or 9 range so I think there is clear line value on the under.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Under the total
Take the under this Wednesday and cash in on MLB action.
