BETTING TRENDS

NY Yankees are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games against Baltimore.

NY Yankees are 8-2 SU in their last 10 games on the road.

The total has gone UNDER in 7 of Baltimore's last 9 games against NY Yankees.

Baltimore are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games at home.

Prediction

The Yankees have one of the best offenses in the league and are allowing the least amount of runs per game as well. The Orioles have scored only 3 runs in their last 3 games but have won 4 of their last 5 games at home. The Yankees are clearly the better team and are playing good on the road. Take the Yankees to win.
