The Baltimore Orioles and NY Yankees continue their 4-game early week set with Game 3 scheduled for a 7:05 ET first pitch on Wednesday, July 20th. Read on for our free MLB pick.

Baltimore Orioles (Gallardo) at NY Yankees (Pineda) 
The Baltimore Orioles and NY Yankees continue their 4-game, early week set with Game 3 scheduled for a 7:05 ET first pitch on Wednesday, July 20th. The Yankees claimed the first 2 games of the series by scores of 2-1 Monday and 7-1 last night, when NY starter, Eovaldi, pitched a rare quality start. With 2 games remaining in the series, there is still time for Baltimore to earn the split. They will do so as our Dog of the Day with a major hitting advantage that finds them with a .795 batting OPS to .706 for NYY.


With 3 consecutive victories, the New Yorkers have now achieved the record of 47-46, a rare time this season that they have been on the plus side of .500. With a pair of victories against the Orioles, they now trail the Birds by 6 ½ games. In their last 3 outings, NY pitching has held the big bats of Boston and Baltimore to a combined 3 runs. But, it is doubtful that will happen tonight with Pineda on the mound. For the year, Pineda is 3-9 with a 5.56 ERA. In his last 6 starts, Pineda is 0-3, allowing 5 earned runs in each of his last 2 starts. There is a good chance he will not make it through the 6th, which would allow the well-rested DMC bullpen to take control.

For Baltimore, Gallardo has pitched little better than Pineda with a 3-1 record (due to strong support from the Baltimore bats) but a 5.77 ERA. Gallardo may not get that support tonight, as during Baltimore’s 3-game losing streak, they have plated just 4 runs on 17 hits. But, the overall batting numbers as quoted earlier give the Orioles a significant edge at the plate against a relatively weak-hitting home team. And, at this price point, it is hard to pass up this Baltimore BERD (better record dog)!  


It is not often that we get the opportunity to play a division leader at this point in the season as a significant underdog. And with the starting pitching showing no significant edge with either Gallardo or Pineda, it is tough to give the Yankees this big of an edge in the betting line. As a result, the only selection can be our MLB Dog of the Day with the division leading Baltimore Orioles. I invite you to put the MLB odds in your favor and join me in my MLB pick on the Baltimore Orioles tonight.
