Orioles rained out again
Baltimore was rained out for the second consecutive day. They come into today’s doubleheader off a win over the Angels to end a four-game losing streak. The Orioles are 14-26 overall, 8-11 on the road and 20-18 with the over. Baltimore has David Hess on the mound today. He is 1-4 on the season with a 5.50 ERA.
The Orioles have the worst pitching in the majors right now. Their team ERA of 5.51 ranks dead last in MLB, while their team WHIP of 1.45 ranks 28th. Offensively, Baltimore averages just 3.98 runs per game while the team is hitting .237 at the plate. Dwight Smith Jr. is leading the team with nine doubles, eight home runs and 27 RBI. Trey Mancini is adding 13 doubles, seven home runs and 16 RBI.
Yankees ready to get back to action
New York is coming off a series win at Tampa this weekend. The Yankees have won seven of their last 10 games. New York is now 24-16 on the season, 13-9 at home and 22-17 with the over. J.A. Happ gets the start tonight. He is 2-3 on the season with a 4.36 ERA.
The Yankees are pretty strong on offense and defense. Pitching-wise, New York has a 3.82 team ERA with a 1.24 WHIP. At the plate, New York is averaging 5.00 runs per game while hitting .253. The Yanks remain without top hitters Giancarlo Stanton and Aaron Judge while catcher Gary Sanchez is questionable to play today due to an injury. Luke Voit is leading the team with 10 home runs and 30 RBI while DJ LeMahieu has 10 doubles with 21 RBI and a .333 average.
MLB Betting Trends
The Orioles are 3-13 in Hess’ last 16 road starts and 6-20 in his last 26 starts overall.
The Yankees are 7-1 in their last eight division games and 36-16 in their last 52 series openers.
These two have met six times already this season and the road team is actually 5-1, but the Yankees are 4-2. Hess has struggled on the mound lately, giving up at least three runs in six straight starts. Happ has two scoreless outing in his last three starts. Hess is likely to give up some runs on the road today while I think Happ can limit the damage of this Baltimore line, which has not been productive. I like the Yankees in this series opener
