The Line: Baltimore Orioles +245 / New York Yankees -270 --- Over/Under: 8.5
The New York Yankees and Baltimore Orioles meet Sunday in MLB action at Oriole Park at Camden Yards.
The New York Yankees look to stay hot after winning seven of their last eight games. The Yankees have scored 22 runs in their last three games and five or more runs in six of their last eight games. The New York Yankees have won seven straight games when scoring more than three runs. Giancarlo Stanton leads the Yankees with 141 hits and 82 RBI while Miguel Andujar and Didi Gregorius have combined for 258 hits and 144 RBI. Luis Severino gets the ball, and he is 16-6 with a 3.28 ERA and 181 strikeouts this season. Severino is 4-1 with a 3.33 ERA and 45 strikeouts in his career against the Orioles.
The Baltimore Orioles could use a win here in order to snap a seven-game losing streak. The Orioles have allowed 22 runs in their last three games and five or more runs in seven straight games. The Baltimore Orioles have lost eight straight games when allowing more than two runs. Offensively, Adam Jones leads the Orioles with 134 hits and 49 RBI while Trey Mancini and Mark Trumbo have combined for 194 hits and 84 RBI. Dylan Bundy gets the ball, and he is 7-12 with a 5.31 ERA and 140 strikeouts this season. Bundy is 2-4 with a 6.03 ERA and 32 strikeouts in his career against the Yankees.
The Yankees are 5-2 in their last 7 Sunday games, 8-3 in Severinos last 11 road starts and 38-15 in Severinos last 53 starts. The Orioles are 2-5 in their last 7 during game 4 of a series, 2-5 in Bundys last 7 home starts and 0-4 in Bundys last 4 starts. The Yankees are 6-2 in the last 8 meetings in Baltimore, 4-1 in Severinos last 5 starts vs. Orioles and the over is 27-4-1 in the last 32 meetings.
The Baltimore Orioles are just a joke of a baseball team and have continued to burn more money than any other team in the league this season. There's just no reason to back the O's in their current form, especially with the pitching staff getting rocked nightly. Severino has been a little shaky as of late, but he's still a pitcher with insane stuff and is more than capable of taking care of a limited Baltimore offense. Yankees and the RL seems to be the only option here.
