He lasted four innings against Toronto, allowing one run on seven hits with three walks and eight strikeouts.

PUBLIC BETTING INFORMATION

The public betting for this game is backing New York. The Yankees are getting 69 percent of the wagers on this contest as the favorite at home against the Orioles.

KEY INJURIES

Neither team has anybody new listed on the injury report for today’s contest.

BETTING STRATEGIES

The Yankees and Orioles went 14 innings before Baltimore scored four runs to grab a 7-3 win on Friday. Baltimore has won the first two games in this series despite being a big underdog in each of the two games. Pedro Alvarez gave Baltimore the win with a pinch-hit, grand slam in the 14th inning. Manny Machado added four hits and two RBI for the Orioles in the victory.

Kevin Gausman pitched 5 innings for the Orioles, allowing two runs on five hits. C.C. Sabathia only lasted four innings for the Yankees, giving up four hits and three runs. Didi Gregorius had his third home run of the season in the loss while Giancarlo Stanton added a pair of hits with a RBI.

Both teams really went through their bullpen in this game. It will be important for today’s starters to go deep into the game. Neither pitcher has been great at that, but I will trust Gray more than Tillman in this case. Gray is at home and has the better lineup behind him. New York has already burned me twice this week, but I have to believe that the talent of the Yankees will step up at some point this weekend.
