New York Yankees vs. Baltimore Orioles: Picks, Predictions, Odds and Player Props

The second game of the series between the New York Yankees and Baltimore Orioles will feature Nestor Cortes and Dean Kremer on the mound respectively. 

Cortes, a southpaw with a 3.50 ERA, has been phenomenal, completing at least seven innings in three of his last four outings. He will have a red-hot Yankees offense behind him as New York has scored 15 runs in two of their last three games.

The Orioles were in need of a pitcher to step up in the absence of John Means, Kyle Bradish, and Tyler Wells. That pitcher has been Kremer, a right-hander who has allowed three or less runs in four of his five starts in 2024. If he can put together a quality outing, this game should come down to the wire.

New York Yankees vs. Baltimore Orioles betting picks and predictions

Orioles ML (+100)

The O's are worth a look anytime they have a plus sign next to their money line.

In this case, the Orioles have plenty of value as underdogs. Baltimore held New York scoreless in the series opener which allowed their offense to win the game with just two runs. That's not normal for the O's since they had scored at least four runs in 13 of their last 14 games.

With Adley Rutschman and Gunnar Henderson at the top of the order and plenty of young talent at the bottom of the lineup, the Orioles bats are dangerous. 

The Yankees exploded for 36 runs in their three-game set against the Brewers over the weekend, but that high offensive output shouldn't be expected every series. New York has been inconsistent at the plate this year which has made it hard to consider them a top five team in baseball right now.

The star-studded Yankees take on Kremer on Tuesday, and the right-hander finished with 10 strikeouts in just 5.1 innings last time out. If Kremer can limit New York at the plate, Baltimore's lineup should be able to do the rest.

Under 9.5 (-110)

It's a little surprising to see the total this high for the matchup. Cortes and Kremer have been fabulous recently, and both teams boast a strong bullpen with plenty of reliable arms.

In his last four starts, Cortes has pitched 26 innings and has surrendered 7 runs and 18 hits. Plus, he's walked just one batter in that span. The southpaw's accuracy has been nearly perfect this season, and that’s going to be crucial against an Orioles outfit that leads the league in home runs.

Camden Yards is a pitcher friendly park because of the extended wall in the outfield. In addition to that, neither Cortes nor Kremer give up a lot of home runs, so don't expect a slugfest between these two lineups.

Once the two starters are out of the game, it will be between the bullpens to keep the game low scoring. That shouldn't be too hard since both teams used only three arms on Monday and have a fairly rested group of relievers in game two.

Take the Under in the second game of the series between these divisional foes.
