Baltimore Orioles +140 (BetOnline)
The Baltimore Orioles and NY Yankees begin a pivotal series as the top two teams in the AL East square off. The Yankees are 50-24 while the Orioles are 47-24 and trail the Yanks by 1.5-games. Both teams can hit and both have good pitching, evidenced by the Yankees best +124 run differential and the Orioles 2nd best +114 mark. The Orioles will start Albert Suarez this evening. Suarez is 3-0 with a nifty 1.61 ERA and 1.05 WHIP in his 14 starts. He's also allowed just three total runs over his last five starts (20 innings). The Yanks will counter with Nestor Cortes. Cortes is 3-5 on the season with a 3.59 ERA. Cortes has been much better at home where he is 3-2 with a 1.77 ERA. Still, I have to give the pitching edge here to Suarez who has been excellent. Plus I get Suarez and the O's as a dog in this one. Take Baltimore.
