Betting Pick: New York Yankees vs. Baltimore Orioles

Betting Pick: New York Yankees vs. Baltimore Orioles

The Baltimore Orioles will be trying to snap their nine-game losing streak to the New York Yankees when they meet in the first game of their three-game series on Monday night. 

The Yankees managed to bounce back from last weekend’s series loss to the Boston Red Sox with an impressive week in which they won five of six games, including their series win over the Red Sox this weekend. Their run this week allowed them to increase their lead in the AL East to eight games over the Rays and 13.5 games over the Red Sox. With the division race still in doubt, the Yankees cannot afford to lose to the bottom-dwelling Orioles when they play on Monday.

Offensively, New York is one of the best teams in the league. The team’s .268 batting average is fourth in the league. Their .343 on-base percentage is third, while their .471 slugging percentage is fourth in the league. The 623 runs they have scored is third in the league.

The Orioles followed up one of their best stretches of the season with a poor performance this week, and have lost four of their last six games. Despite their playoff hopes being over, the Orioles can still cost the Yankees a chance to win the AL East by taking this three-game series from the Bronx Bombers.

Offensively, Baltimore is one of the worst teams in the league. The team’s .244 batting average is 25th in the league. Their .305 on-base percentage is 26th, while their .406 slugging percentage is 25th in the league The 474 runs they have scored is 27th in the league.
