Yankees vs. Orioles Free Pick
Will the Orioles hand the Yankees their seventh consecutive loss tonight when the AL East rivals meet at 7:05PM ET?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Orioles are -123 money line favorites over the Yankees, who have odds of +113 to pull off the upset and end their losing streak. With CC Sabathia set to face Tyler Wilson in the pitching matchup, the over/under sits at 8.5 runs.
Sabathia walked three and gave up five hits in a loss on Wednesday to the Rangers. He surrendered three earned runs in six innings and has now allowed three earned runs in each of his last four starts this season. His ERA is sitting at 5.06 on the year.
Wilson, meanwhile, failed to make it through five innings last Thursday as he allowed two runs over 4 2/3 frames in a no-decision against the White Sox. He finished with four hits and a walk allowed while striking out three batters before exciting in the top of the fifth inning. He now owns a 3.06 ERA and a 1.08 WHIP in 17 2/3 innings pitched.
OUR PICK: After their loss yesterday, the Yankees are now 7-21 in their last 28 games in Baltimore and are winless at 0-6 in their last six games versus the Orioles overall. They're also 0-4 in Sabathia's last four starts against the Orioles and 0-4 in his last four outings in Baltimore. The Bombers are now 3-13 in their last 16 road games, are 0-5 in their last five road games versus a team with a winning record, and are 0-4 in their last five games versus a right-handed starter. With Sabathia on the mound, we don't think the Yankees will put a halt to their losing streak tonight.
