Yankees playing well

The Yankees are coming off a series win over the Rays at home this weekend. They have won five of their last six, including two wins over the Orioles, coming into today. New York is 28-17 on the season, 11-7 on the road and 23-21 with the over. J.A. Happ is on the mound for New York tonight. He is 3-3 on the season with a 4.44 ERA.

New York is averaging 5.02 runs per game this season while hitting .253 at the plate. On the mound, the Yankees have a 3.67 ERA with a 1.21 WHIP. Luke Volt is leading the team with 11 home runs and 34 RBI while Gary Sanchez has 12 home runs and 22 RBI.

Orioles a mess

Baltimore is coming off a 10-0 loss at Cleveland on Sunday. They have dropped five of their last six games and eight of their last 10. The Orioles are 15-31 on the season, 6-15 at home and 23-21 with the under. Baltimore has Andrew Cashner on the mound tonight. He is 4-2 on the season with a 4.10 ERA.

The Orioles have the league’s worst pitching staff, as they have a 5.55 ERA with a 1.46 WHIP. Baltimore averages just 3.83 runs per game on offense while hitting only .233 as a team. Dwight Smith Jr. is leading the team with 10 doubles, eight home runs and 27 RBI while Trey Mancini has 14 doubles, 10 home runs and 21 RBI.

MLB Betting Trends

New York

The Yankees are 11-2 in their last 13 AL East games and 16-5 in their last 21 games against a right-handed starter.

Baltimore

The Orioles are just 24-56 in their last 80 home games and 7-17 in their last 24 Monday games.

Prediction:

The Yankees are already 6-2 against Baltimore this year, including three wins in Baltimore. Happ hasn’t been lights out, but he is capable of strong outings. He has just a 5.93 ERA against Baltimore in three starts, but he has the far better run support and pitching staff behind him. Cashner has a 7.20 ERA in two starts against the Yankees and I don’t think it will get any better. The Orioles just aren’t a good team and the Yankees are playing good baseball right now.

MLB Prediction: New York Yankees -195
