New York Yankees. (+105)

The New York Yankees are 2rd in the American League East 4 games back of the Baltimore Orioles. The Yankees are not having the best season so far they are  just 1 game over .500 at 46-45 but if you look at their stats its surprising they’re not worse then they actually are. The Yankees are averaging 4.05 runs per game on offense while allowing 4.46 runs on defense for a -0.41 run deferential so with those kind of numbers they’re lucky they’re not 5 or 10 games under .500.  Starting for the Yankees is Hiroki Kuroda who is 6-6 with a 4.20 ERA on the season.

New York Yankees Trends

Yankees are 4-11 in Kurodas last 15 road starts.
Yankees have won just 12 of their last 19 games.
Under is 22-4-1 in Kurodas last 27 starts vs. a team with a winning record.


I like the Baltimore Orioles as a small -115 favorite in this one today. They’re at home and have been playing pretty good recently winning 8 of their last 10 games while the Yankees are starting to fade a bit losing 12 of their last 19 games.


Dean kicks ass at giving simple easy to read sports picks and includes the recent stats on both teams. He specializes in NHL and MLB, but also does NBA and Golf picks.
