Odds, picks & predictions

Run line: Yankees -1.5 (-120)
Run total: 7.5
Moneyline odds: Yankees -240, Orioles +195

Moneyline pick: Orioles +195

There is enough value on Baltimore in this number when taking a look at this pitching matchup. Zimmerman allowed less than 3 earned runs per game in six of eight starts this season, so he should do enough to keep the Orioles in it. If he can do that, you’re getting great value with a significant return coming with a victory.

Player prop pick: Bruce Zimmerman Over 3.5 strikeouts (-115)

Zimmerman is not an elite strikeout thrower, but he has done well in striking out Yankees batters in three opportunities this season compared to this total, striking out 4.3 hitters per game. New York does not strike out a ton, but 3.5 is too low in this spot with plenty of value toward the over.
