Masahiro Tanaka gets the start on the mound for the Yankees tonight. He has started 13 games this season and has a 7-2 record with a 4.58 ERA and a 1.09 WHIP. Tanaka has logged 72.2 innings this year and has 73 strikeouts with 19 walks.
Orioles manage win
The Orioles ended their six-game losing streak on Monday with the 5-4 win over the Yankees, but then went back to losing in the 10-2 loss in the nightcap. Baltimore is now 25-66 overall and 13-30 at home. The Orioles are putting up 3.56 runs per game this year while allowing 5.22 per contest.
Andrew Cashner gets the start for the Orioles this evening. He is making his 18th start of 2018 and has a 2-9 record with a 4.39 ERA and a 1.56 WHIP. Cashner has pitched 94.1 innings and has 74 strikeouts with 42 walks.
MLB Betting Trends
The Yankees have won six straight Tuesday games and 14 of their last 19 Game 3’s in a series.
The Orioles have lost six of Cashner’s last seven starts. They are also 11-40 in their last 51 games against a right-handed starter.
The Orioles just aren’t a team I can expect to win regularly, especially against the Yankees. Cashner isn’t a great pitcher and the Baltimore hitters aren’t consistent. Tanaka doesn’t have the best numbers himself, but he does have a great lineup behind him and a strong bullpen to hand the ball over to.
The Pick: New York Yankees -210
