Orioles vs Yankees Prediction

The Yankees are coming into this game as a big favorite with the current betting odds. They have not been playing well in their recent games as their long streaks have come to an end and they have now lost a lot of their games in the last week. They are going up against an Orioles team that has been very inconsistent this season but just won their series against the Rays and now the first game of this series with the Yankees as well. The Yankees still have a much better team though between their hitters and their pitching staff, this is a game that they need to win as they cannot afford to drop games and a series to a team like the Orioles with the division they have to compete in. The Yankees will have some pride in this game at home after dropping the first game in the series to the Orioles at home and they will bounce back here. The best bet here is on the Yankees to win this game on the runline.
