Orioles at New York Yankees August 28, 105 EST
Going back to the well is something that those in baseball betting have no problem doing, especially when it continues to offer up winning plays. In this case, the play involves the A.L. East clash between New York Yankees and Baltimore Orioles.
Yankees looking to sweep the series hand the ball to southpaw C.C. Sabathia carrying an 8-10 record, 4.33 ERA. Orioles send Kevin Gausman to the mound with a 5-10 record on the campaign, 3.92 ERA.
The most compelling numbers in the Yankees’ favor are not the figures compiled by Sabathia but those compiled by Kevin Gausman. Sabathia has had his issues of late in front of the home audience (1-5) but those are minor compared to the struggles Gausman has away from Camden Yards. The Baltimore righthander is 0-9 this season with a 5.32 ERA and 0-16 his last twenty-five in an opposing park with a 5-20 Team Start Record.
The fact Sabathia is a portsider is another obsticle for Baltimore. The Orioles have lost six straight swinging away at a lefthanded starter. Additionally, the Orioles are on a 1-6 skid vs a division opponent.
The numbers above clearly illustrate that New York is the right choice. Current odds have Yankees -$1.10 to -$1.15 home favorites depending on locale.
