Major League Baseball opens with a rather unattractive game between the Yankees and Orioles whereby New York was coming in at -405.


Those betting this game were willing to pay the hefty price on New York ($40 to win $10).

The Orioles, we should note, are just 1-6 in the last 7 meetings between these two teams. 

TV: 1:05 p.m. ET, ESPN, MASN2 (Baltimore), YES (New York)

PITCHING MATCHUP: Orioles RH Andrew Cashner (2018: 4-15, 5.29 ERA) vs. Yankees RH Masahiro Tanaka (2018: 12-6, 3.75)

Cashner has been with four teams over his last three years and struggled in 2018 in his first season in Baltimore, posting a 6.71 ERA after the All-Star break. The 32-year-old was a bit better in four starts against the Yankees, going 1-2 with a 4.26 ERA. He gave up 10 runs in 15 1/3 innings during spring training.

Tanaka bounced back last year from a subpar 2017 by lowering his ERA nearly a run while winning at least 12 games for the fifth time in as many seasons. The 30-year-old was 2-0 with a 2.65 ERA and 23 strikeouts in 17 innings during Grapefruit League action. He owns a 3.72 mark in 12 career starts against Baltimore.
