The Orioles are 5-16 in their last 21 games as an underdog and 6-2 in Chens last 8 starts. The 5-2 in their last 7 during game 1 of a series and 9-2 in Pinedas last 11 starts with 5 days of rest. The Orioles are 0-4 in the last 4 meetings in New York and 0-4 in the last 4 meetings overall.
The orioles are nearly unbackable right now, as this is a team that's thrilled the offseason is coming up. Give me NY to roll in this game with Pineda on the hill.
