The Baltimore Orioles and the New York Yankees meet for game one of their division series from Baltimore’s Camden Yards. All odds for all games can be found at Top Bet sportsbook.
Baltimore upended the Rangers on the road in the one-game wild-card playoff behind clutch hitting a solid pitching performance by Joe Saunders. They begin this series looking to pull another upset over their AL East rival, the Yankees. For game one of the series they will send Jason Hammel to the mound who is coming off an injury to his right knee. He started three games versus Yankees so far this season and the Orioles are 1-2 in those starts.
During the first half of the season the Yankees look like a sure thing to wrap up their division early, faded in the second half, and got it together in time to win the division. The Yankees were once again highlighted by an offense that hit 245 home runs. In game one of the ALDS they will start their ace CC Sabathia. This season Sabathia was 15-6 with a 3.38 ERA.
Sabathia is experienced in this spot and will probably pitch well as a result. However with Baltimore being such a prohibitive underdog at home we will take a chance on the team on the money line at the best sports books.
