Orioles vs. Yankees Pick

MLB Predictions: Can the Yankees cruise past the Orioles? 4/5/18

Will the New York Yankees stay perfect at home when they host the Baltimore Orioles tonight at 6:35PM ET?

GAME SNAPSHOT

(971) Baltimore Orioles at (972) New York Yankees

Thursday, April 5, 2018

Location: Yankee Stadium – New York, New York

Weather: Partly Cloudy, 46 degrees, 11mph Winds

Time: 6:35PM ET

CURRENT ODDS

According to oddsmakers at YouWager, New York is clearly favored in this game, as the Yankees are getting odds of -230 to win against Baltimore. The Orioles are getting a money line of +210 to prevail. The over/under total is currently listed at 8.5 runs.

PITCHING MATCHUP

The pitching matchup for tonight has Masahiro Tanaka on the mound for the Yankees to face Andrew Cashner of the Orioles. Cashner pitched five innings in a loss to the Twins last week. He allowed five runs on six hits, including three home runs. Tanaka picked up a win in his first start against the Blue Jays. He allowed just one run and three hits over six innings while striking out eight and walking none.

PUBLIC BETTING INFORMATION

The public betting for this game is backing New York. The Yankees are getting 80 percent of the wagers on this contest as the favorite at home against the Orioles.

KEY INJURIES

Baltimore has nobody new listed on the injury report for today’s contest. New York has Jacoby Ellsbury and Clint Frazier on the DL. Ellsbury is out until mid-April with an oblique injury while Frazier is dealing with concussion symptoms.

BETTING STRATEGIES

The Yankees have started the season 4-2 thanks to back-to-back wins over the Rays at home this week. New York has put up 35 runs in six games while allowing 21. Didi Gregorius has driven in nine runs and has two home runs with four doubles to lead the Yankees thus far. Giancarlo Stanton has three home runs and six RBI for his new team.

Baltimore won its season opener over the Twins but has lost five straight since. The Orioles were just swept at Houston to fall to 1-5. They have scored 14 runs in six games while allowing 32. Adam Jones had two home runs and five RBI to lead the Orioles thus far while Jonathan Schoop is hitting .308 with three doubles.

The Orioles just haven’t looked good, scoring two runs or less in four of their last five games. That’s not likely to lead to much offense today against Tanaka. The Baltimore pitching hasn’t been good either and will now face a very powerful New York lineup. I like the Yankees to win by multiple runs tonight.
