Yankees vs Orioles Week 7
Yankees vs Orioles MLB betting predictions

Saturday night at Camden Yards the Yankees will send out RHP Domingo German (2-2) to square off with the Orioles RHP Jorge Lopez (1-3). German seems healthy after coming back from a stint on the IR earlier this season. I’m not going to pick the Orioles to win many games this year and especially with the way Lopez has pitched at home in 2021 ( 6.62 ERA). Take the Yankees to win.

The Covid virus, Covid19, Sars-Cov2, whatever you call it – I don’t like it! And I’m sure the Yankees don’t either. Thursday the Yankees announced that shortstop Gleyber Torres tested positive for the virus and he is now on the 10 day IR. Although Torres was previously vaccinated and although he was asymptomatic, a “new strain” of Covid 19, according to Yankees GM Brian Cashman had made its way into the Yankees team. New York will also temporarily replace 7 coaches, including pitching coach Matt Blake, third base coach Phil Nevin and first base coach Reggie Willits. Enough of the covid updates and onto baseball.

Sometimes I think MLB should have 2 leagues, in one they can put teams who are all in and spending money this season, which will include teams like the Yankees and Dodgers perennially. And in the other league there could be teams like the Orioles who go all in sometimes and in certain seasons when they choose. For NJ online sports betting fans, one way to breakdown win probability is just to look at what a team spends. The Yankees payroll this season is 163M and the Orioles is 22M, and sure, they both play by the same rules, but I don’t call it necessarily fair. Enough of payroll and onto this game.

Saturday the home team Orioles will send Jorge Lopez to the bump. Lopez is 1-3 on the season with a 1.25 WHIP and has a 6.62 ERA at Camden Yards in ‘21. Odds are he will last fewer than 5 innings and the Baltimore bullpen has a 3.39 ERA and a 1.20 WHIP on the season.

The Baltimore bats match their last place in the standings and the O’s are in the bottom of most statistical categories on offense. Center Fielder Cedric Millins has been one bright spot for the Orioles, he leads the team with a .308 average, a .370 OBP and has 45 hits on the season. Right fielder Trey Mancini has 7 HR and 29 RBI to lead the club.

The Yankees will pitch Domingo German who is 2-2 on the season with a 4.02 ERA and a WHIP of 1.18. On the road German has been better and is 2-1 with a 3.18 ERA. All that cash can buy pitching and the Yankees bullpen has the lowest WHIP in MLB at 1.04 with a 2.90 ERA. Fireballer Aroldis Chapman has 9 saves on the year and I expect to see him if there is a save opportunity in this one.

Gio Stanton, who will earn 7M more than the entire Orioles roster this season, Leads the Yankees with 9 HR, 24 RBI and 37 hits. Aaron Judge has a .371 OBP and the Yakees as a team are 4th in MLB with 48 HR.

Yes the Yankees have a bad Covid situation to deal with and yes they are on the road and yes Germain isn’t their best pitcher. But yes they are playing the Orioles and yes, I’m picking them to win. Yanks win at Camden yards.
