There is one pick tonight.
Take Over 8.5 runs (-110) in New York Yankees vs Baltimore Orioles risking 3.30% to win 3%.
(Severino and Bundy must start for wager to have action.)
These two teams square off in the series finale tonight and we feel that this matchup lends itself much more towards both offenses than either of the starting pitchers. The Yankees currently hold a healthy lead in the Wildcard standings and after winning the first 3-games of this series, we wouldn't be surprised to see the New York players come into this one a bit overconfident.
The Yankees will hand the ball over to Luis Severino tonight. Severino was one of the best pitchers in all of baseball during the first half of the season, sporting a 14-2 overall record and a 2.31 ERA in his first 20 starts. However, in seven starts since the All-Star Break, the Yankees’ ace is just 2-4 with a 7.26 ERA. Severino has just one quality start in his last eight outings and he’s completed six innings just one time during that span as well, while allowing 11 home runs.
While Severino has struggled, Baltimore's Dylan Bundy has struggled more. In what has been a mess of a season for the Orioles, Bundy has been mailing it in from the mound for some time. He has allowed 7 runs in each of his last 3 starts which includes 6 home runs. Even if New York is overconfident, they should have little issue capitalizing on the mistakes of Bundy.
New York should have a field day at the plate tonight and given the struggles of Severino, the O's should get just enough offense to push this total Over the posted line.
