The three game series is split heading in to the final game in Baltimore between the Orioles and the Yankees. MLB odds can be found at Oddsmaker sportsbook.
The Yankees (28-17) are atop of their divison, the American League East, and playing some good baseball right now. They were on a three game winning streak before they lost the second game of the series to the Orioles in Baltimore. Hiroki Kuroda has had a good start to the year, with a record of 6-2 in nine starts. But, even more impressive, is his low ERA of just 1.99. Kuroda will pitch for the Yankees in the third game on Wednesday. Robinson Cano is continuing his stellar season for the Bronx Bombers. Cano is hitting .290 with 13 long balls and 32 RBI’s. He leads the team in all of those categories including total hits, with 53.
The Orioles (24-21) have not played a good month whatsoever that included a stretch in which they lost seven games out of eight. They finally broke the streak when they won on Tuesday against the Yankees. Baltimore will start Jason Hammel in this solid pitching matchup. Hammel is 5-2 on the year with a 5.72 ERA. It is not the greatest earned run average, but he has definitely shown his ability to win games.
The Yankees are 26-19 against the spread while the Orioles are just 23-22.
In this tight pitching matchup, I am going to go with the Yankees to take this deciding game in the three game series behind Hiroki Kuroda so first check online sportsbook reviews.
