The New York Yankees travel to Baltimore for a very important weekend series. All odds for all games of this series can be found at Bovada sportsbook.
If you could have predicted that the Yankees and Orioles will be playing a meaningful game in September you are certainly a better prognosticator than we are. The Orioles have been red-hot lately coming into the series while the Yankees have struggled just as much. The Yankee sit one game on top of the Orioles entering this all important weekend series.
The Orioles will start Jason Hammell tonight in the first game of the series and he will battle David Phelps who takes the mound for the Yankees. Hammell is on a pace to crack the double-digit win mark for the first time in his career and has a 3.54 ERA so far this season. With the bats the Orioles have been led by Nick Markakis over the last week who has hit .462 during that span.
On the flipside Yankees will send David Phelps to the mound who has pitched well despite having a record under .500 to show for it. Phelps has had to fill in an emergency role and has more than admirably pitched to a 3.31 ERA. As a team however the Yankees have struggled a lot lately and have even seen their best hitter Derek Jeeter slowdown in the last week or so.
The Orioles have certainly come a long way, we just think the Yankees are too good to keep this slide going too much longer. Give us the Yankees as moneyline favorites at home so first check online sportsbook reviews.
