Major league baseball on Tuesday night and we will see the Baltimore Orioles travel to the Bronx to take on the New York Yankees in game 1 of their 3 game series. Free Pick to follow. First pitch is scheduled for a 7:05 PM (Eastern) start time and the game will be televised locally.
New York -120
Over/ Under: 8 O -120
Baltimore comes into this series just a game over .500 and they are just 17-26 on the road for the season. Baltimore is now in 2nd place in the AL East, 4 games behind the Yankees. New York comes in having won 9 of their last 13 games to increase their lead in the East and to move to 9 games over .500 for the year. The Yanks have gone 27-17 at home for the year
The Orioles rank 5th in scoring (4.42 rpg), 8th in hitting (.257) and 5th in homers (113), while on the mound they are 12th in ERA (3.73) and 17th in WHIP (1.27). New York ranks 2nd in scoring (4.59 rpg), 16th in hitting (.253) and 2nd in homers (120), while on the mound they are 19th in ERA (3.91) and 15th in WHIP (1.26).
Getting the ball for the Orioles tonight will be Wei Yin Chen, who is 4-5 with a 2.78 ERA in 17 starts this year, while on the road he has gone 1-1 with a 2,57 ERA in 6 starts. Chen is 3-4 with a 4.76 ERA in 11 career starts vs the Orioles, while at Yankee Stadium he is 2-3 with a 4.15 ERA in 6 starts.
Taking the hill for the Yankees tonight will be Nathan Eovaldi, who is 9-2 with a 4.50 ERA on the year, while at home he has gone 4-0 with a 3.72 ERA in 8 starts. Nathan is 1-0 with a 4.22 ERA in 2 career starts vs the Orioles.
Pick: Both starters have been solid of late, but I still see this as a high scoring game, especially with Eovaldi pitching at home, where his home starts have average 11.38 rpg. He does have a 3.72 ERA at home, but the Yanks have scored 7.25 rpg for him at Yankee Stadium. Overall New York has scored 5.36 rpg at home and they should be able to get to Chen, who has a career 4.76 ERA vs NY, which includes a 4.15 ERA in 6 starts in this park. The Orioles offense has been average at best of late as they have scored just 4.1 rpg in their last 10, but 4 runs should be enough from them here as I also expect at least 4 runs from New York.

How to Bet Canadian Football: Take Advantage of the Rule Change
Vegas gambling experts Scott Spreitzer and Steve Fezzik offer some winning betting tips for Candian Football fans. A new CFL rule change will result in higher-scoring games, so Fezzik suggests betting the overs on win totals once the season is in full swing in Week 5. Like the NFL, CFL offenses play catch up early in the season, but eventually get in a groove that results in high-scoring games and possibly lucrative wagers.
