Baltimore has also lost three straight games and five out of their last six. Meanwhile, the New York Yankees are one of the hottest teams in the league.
Not only are they clinched already, but they’ve won nine out of their last 10 coming into this one. Will the Yankees extend their hot streak, or will the Orioles break out of their funk?
Let’s check the latest MLB odds, stats, injury reports, and MLB lines for Orioles vs Yankees. We’ve plenty of Vegas MLB odds for you to consider.
Lyles Will Attempt to Save Orioles Season
Jordan Lyles is going to be starting here to try and keep Baltimore Orioles alive in the playoff race. Lyles has worked his way to an 11-11 record on the season with a below-average 4.55 ERA.
The last two games he’s appeared in have seen the Orioles come away with wins as well. However, he hasn’t exactly thrived in matchups with the Yankees this season.
He’s appeared against the Yankees in five different games this year. During those contests, he’s produced 27.5 innings of work, which isn’t bad. However, if you bet online, note that he’s frequently been in trouble.
He’s allowed 31 hits and 17 runs. The Orioles came away with wins in three of those games. As a team, the Yankees bat .277 against him, with Aaron Judge going five-for-14 with a pair of home runs.
The question here is how motivated the Yankees will be with little to play for. The Orioles should have an opportunity to win and cash on the MLB odds.
Yankees Rolling With German
New York may have already clinched the playoffs, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t trying to play the spoiler and eliminate the Orioles. Domingo German is set to start for the New York Yankees here. German holds onto a 2-3 record with a 3.30 ERA.
He’s had interesting results when playing on the road compared to at home. With home-field advantage, he’s undefeated at 2-0, but his ERA rises to 3.86.
On the road, he falls to 0-3 but has an improved 2.86 ERA. The main difference has been run support. We’ll see if he gets it tonight against the O’s.
