Orioles vs. Yankees Pick

MLB Predictions: Will the Yankees earn a split with the Orioles? 4/8/18

Can the New York Yankees salvage a four-game split with the Baltimore Orioles when the two meet up this afternoon at 1:05PM ET?

GAME SNAPSHOT

(915) Baltimore Orioles at (916) New York Yankees

Sunday, April 8, 2018

Location: Yankee Stadium – New York, New York

Weather: Partly Cloudy, 45 degrees, 9mph Winds

Time: 1:05PM ET

CURRENT ODDS

According to oddsmakers at YouWager, New York is clearly favored in this game, as the Yankees are getting odds of -205 to win against Baltimore. The Orioles are getting a money line of +180 to prevail. The over/under total is currently listed at 9.5 runs.

PITCHING MATCHUP

Tonight’s pitching matchup features Mike Wright Jr. on the mound for the Orioles to face Jordan Montgomery of the Yankees. Wright struggled in his first start against the Astros, allowing three runs and four hits over five innings. Jordan Montgomery pitched five innings against the Rays earlier this week, allowing just one run and two hits over with four walks and four strikeouts.

PUBLIC BETTING INFORMATION

The public betting for this game is backing New York. The Yankees are getting 68 percent of the wagers on this contest as the favorite at home against the Orioles.

KEY INJURIES

The injury report is filling up with the Yankees. Gary Sanchez is questionable today with a calf injury while Tyler Wade is questionable due to the flu. Colby Rasmus is out for today’s game due to a hip flexor injury.

BETTING STRATEGIES

After dropping the first two games of the series to the Orioles, New York bounced back on Saturday with an 8-3 win over Baltimore. Sonny Gray pitched six innings for the Yankees, allowing three runs on four hits. That was good enough for the win as the bullpen pitched three scoreless innings. Tyler Austin and Brett Gardner each had two hits and two RBI for New York at the plate while Ronald Torreyes had three hits and scored two runs.

Baltimore starter Chris Tillman allowed five runs and eight hits over 5.1 innings to take his second loss of the season. Manny Machado had a hit and drove in two runs to lead Baltimore at the plate while Trey Mancini had a pair of hits.

I will stick with the Yankees today. The Orioles don’t have a much to offer in terms of pitching today and I don’t see Wright Jr. being able to go deep into this game like Baltimore could use. The Yankees have a lot of dangerous hitters to deal with.
