Baltimore Orioles Fantasy Spin
Nate Karns is scheduled to serve as the Orioles' opener in their second regular-season game Saturday versus the Yankees. Karns will probably go an inning or two before the O's trout out a parade of other relievers. Baltimore's pitching staff is to be avoided almost entirely this year in fantasy.
New York Yankees Fantasy Spin
James Paxton kept the Twins to two runs over 5 2/3 innings in his final spring tuneup Sunday. Paxton scattered six hits and a walk, striking out five in the outing. He's in fine form heading into the regular season, which will be his first on the East Coast. Paxton is among the top fantasy options at the position for his strikeout potential and the expectation that he'll win plenty of games with a stout Yankees offense supporting him.
MLB Betting Trends
The Orioles have lost seven of their previous eight meetings with the Yankees.
The Yankees are 74-33 in their last 107 home games.
While Paxton will likely keep Baltimore’s bats mostly silent, the Bombers should feast on Oriole pitching. The over is 22-4 in the previous 26 meetings between these two teams at Yankee Stadium and is 35-15-1 in the last 51 games in this series overall. The over is also 10-2 in the Yankees’ last 10 games dating back to last season and is 4-1 in their last five home games, which includes Opening Day on Thursday.
The Pick: Orioles/Yankees over 8.5
