The Orioles are like Rodney Dangerfield. They just can’t get no respect. Despite having MLB’s second best record, they own the 14th best World Series odds.

The lack of respect is also prevalent in Tuesday’s MLB odds, as they opened as sizeable road underdogs to the Yankees. Granted, New York will be giving the ball to ace Gerrit Cole, but this Baltimore team is red-hot. They’re fresh off sweeping the Blue Jays in Toronto, and have posted four consecutive series wins.

Orioles vs Yankees Odds

Team Moneyline Runline Total
Baltimore Orioles +140 +1.5 (-140) O 8 (-110)
New York Yankees -165 -1.5 (+120) U 8 (-110)

Not to be outdone, the Yankees are also in very good form as we’ll discuss. New York is currently a -165 moneyline favorite, in a contest with a total of 8. First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 pm ET at Yankee Stadium, in the Bronx, NY, with clear skies and 59 degree temperatures on deck.

Baltimore vs New York Probable Pitchers

Cole will take the ball looking to run his record to a perfect 6-0 this season. The AL Cy Young odds favorite is fresh off 6 shut out innings versus the Blue Jays, scattering seven hits and striking out six. It marked the the fourth time in 10 outings he hasn’t given up a run, and the ninth instance where he’s allowed two runs or less.

He’s 5-3 all-time in 10 career starts versus the Orioles, but was underwhelming in three starts versus them in 2022. Cole went 1-2 versus that edition of the O’s, posting a 4.29 ERA. Current Baltimore regulars in the MLB starting lineups are batting .268 against him over 112 at-bats, with Austin Hays and Cedric Mullins combining for 12 hits in 35 plate appearances.

Bradish vs Cole Stats

Kyle Bradish
VS
Gerrit Cole
2-1 Record 5-0
3.90 ERA 2.01
1.30 WHIP 1.09
.256 OBA .209
2.5 SO/W Ratio 3.4

The Orioles will counter with Kyle Bradish, as the 26-year-old looks to continue his impressive form. Bradish is fresh off 6.2 innings of one run ball versus the Angles, which followed up a 6 inning, one run effort against the Pirates. He’s allowed a single run or less in three of six outings, and has surrendered more than three runs just once.

Bradish doesn’t have a ton of history versus the Yankees facing them just once. Current New York bats are hitting .280 off him, with Harrison Bader doing the most damage, going 2-for-4 with a homer and two RBI.

Orioles vs Yankees Predictions

After a slow start, New York has been on a tear lately. They enter play winners of four straight and 14 of 19 overall. They’re fresh off a three-game sweep of the Reds and have yielded three runs or less in five of their past six games.

Offensively, Aaron Judge is rounding back into the form that earned him top spot in last year’s AL MVP odds. Judge is batting .378 with seven home runs, 18 RBI and a 1.402 OPS in his last 11 starts since returning from injury. He leads the Yanks with 13 dingers, and has gone deep five times in his last six starts.

Judge pounded Oriole pitching in their lone series this season, hitting .400 over 10 at-bats while smacking two homers. He helped New York take two of three from Baltimore last month, but the O’s have since put up strong numbers within the division.

Baltimore is 9-6 this season versus AL East opponents, which is by far the best division in baseball. All five teams are at least three games above .500, with Tampa Bay and the O’s owning the top two winning percentages in MLB.

The O’s are a well balanced team, ranking inside the top-10 in both runs for and runs allowed, and just held the mighty Blue Jays to 3.3 runs per outing en route to a three-game sweep. Mullins and Adley Rutschman have been the most dangerous Oriole bats this season, but we should temper expectations versus Cole.

Orioles vs Yankees 2023 H2H Results

Date Away Team Home Team Result
Apr. 9 Yankees Orioles NYY, 5-3
Apr. 8 Yankees Orioles NYY, 4-1
Apr. 7 Yankees Orioles BAL, 7-6

The righty is not only allowing home runs at his lowest rate since 2015, but he’s also avoiding hard contact. Cole’s hard hit rate currently sits at 29.9%, the lowest it’s been since his days with the Pirates nearly a decade ago.

Seven of Cole’s 10 contests have gone under the total, and this one has the ingredients for a low scoring affair as well. Four of the Yankees last five games have failed to reach the total, while the under is 15-11 in their own stadium this season.

Picks:

  • Under 8 (-110)
  • Gerrit Cole Over 7.5 Strikeouts (-108) at FanDuel Sportsbook
  • Harrison Bader Over 0.5 Hits (-210) at FanDuel Sportsbook
