The New York Yankees will go for their sixth straight victory and a home sweep of the Baltimore Orioles on Thursday afternoon at 1:05 p.m. ET. Meanwhile, Baltimore has one of the worst records in baseball, looking to avoid a fourth straight win.
This should be a compelling pitching matchup with a pair of throwers who have got off to strong starts in 2022. Jameson Taillon will make his fourth start with the Yankees, entering with a 3.07 ERA. He allowed 2 runs in 4.2 innings of a victory against Baltimore on April 16th. Bruce Zimmermann did not allow a run in his first two starts and gave up 2 earned runs in his last time out. On April 17th, he threw 5 shutout innings in a loss to the Yankees.

Orioles vs. Yankees, 1:05 p.m. ET
Run line: Yankees -1.5 (-105), Orioles +1.5 (-115)
Moneyline odds: Yankees -210, Orioles +175
ML pick: Orioles +175
Let’s take a risk and go after the underdog on Thursday afternoon. Zimmermann has been impressive in a small sample size this season and has to be throwing with a ton of confidence. Baltimore has the worst offense in terms of runs per game, but getting +175 odds siding with a pitcher with a 1.20 ERA is too good to pass up.
Best player prop: Rougned Odor U0.5 hits (-110)
The Orioles are not getting a ton of production out of their starting second baseman this season with a .150 batting average. Odor has just 6 hits on the season and went hitless in 11 of the 17 games this year, and there’s a good chance he comes up empty once again Thursday afternoon.
