The New York Yankees are winners of three straight. They’ve completed a sweep. It’s time to rejoice, but … it’s more import this team stays focused.
On Monday the Bombers will open a three-game set against the lowly Baltimore Orioles. Man, it’d be nice to see back-to-back sweeps, wouldn’t it? We’re not asking for too much? Just take care of business against a 37-67 team!
After three close wins against the Miami Marlins, perhaps we can get one of the blowout variety this week. Come on, one time?
The offense needs to wake up. And fast. Because the pitching continues to get the job done.
But look out! The O’s have won six of their last nine, which includes a sweep of the Washington Nationals right before they sold off at the trade deadline.
The Yanks went 6-4 against Baltimore in the first half of the season and were deprived of the sweep on the final game of the series twice. Let’s put an end to that.

Yankees vs Orioles Odds Today
We’ve got the Yanks as heavy favorites tonight, coming in at -260 on the moneyline (bet $260 to win $100) with the Orioles at +210 (bet $100 to win $210). It’s almost never worth it to lay down that kind of money on a favorite unless you’re putting that selection in a parlay. So if you’re interested in a single bet on the Yankees, may we suggest the run line. The Yankees are -1.5 runs (they need to win by two runs or more) and that’s good for -125 (bet $125 to win $100) while the Orioles are +1.5 at +104 (bet $100 to win $104).
The over/under is 9.5, so if you think this game will feature 10 or more total runs scored, go ahead and take of the over at -125 (bet $125 to win $100). If you think we’ll see nine runs or fewer, then the under at +100 is more your speed (bet $100 to win $100).
Yankees vs Orioles Pitching Matchup
It’ll be trade deadline acquisition Andrew Heaney (6-7, 5.27 ERA) taking the bump for the Yankees and he’ll be going up against O’s right-hander Jorge Lopez (2-12, 6.19 ERA). New York typically clobbers Lopez, who owns a 7.23 ERA against the Bombers in six career starts, and this’ll be the third time this year they face off. The Yankees won the last two games he’s been on the mound for Baltimore.
And here comes Heaney’s debut in pinstripes! The lefty was brought in to provide some more depth in the starting rotation. He’s night and day when it comes to performance. You’ll see a number of quality outings with a high number of strikeouts only to be followed by a disastrous three-inning game that features seven earned runs. Odd, indeed, but maybe a shift to the east coast will help out the veteran.
Yankees Starting Lineup
Yankees vs Orioles Prediction Today
Blow ’em out, please. Let’s get the offense on track. More Rizzo magic. Maybe a Joey Gallo breakout? Anybody home, Giancarlo Stanton? He’s now OPSing .799. That cannot continue. Some batting practice courtesy of the O’s should help that.
9-3, Yankees win.
