Mike Lundin’s Orioles vs. Yankees Free Pick
Start Time: September 15, 2017, 7:05 PM EST
The Baltimore Orioles took a 13-5 beating in the opener of this four-game series with the New York Yankees in the Bronx. I predict another easy win for the home team Friday night.
Baltimore hands the ball to 24 year old Gabriel Ynoa (1-1, 4.19 ERA) who will make his seventh appearance and second big league start. He was charged with three runs on seven hits in 4 2/3 frames of a 4-2 loss at Cleveland his last turn. The Yankees are perfect 5-0 in their last five games when facing a right-handed starter and they’ve covered the runline in 12 of their last 13 victories.
Luis Severino (12-6, 2.96 ERA) will take the ball for the Yankees. They’ve won 10 of his 12 starts since July 8, covering the runline in each win. Severino is 2-0 with a 2.95 ERA in three starts against Baltimore on the season and has the current Orioles roster limited to a .207 batting average through 121 at bats.
It’s always a bit risky backing the home team on the runline, but note that the Yankees are 16-6 against the runline as a home favorite of at least -175 this season.
My free pick is on the New York Yankees -1.5.
