New York Yankees vs. Baltimore Orioles Betting Analysis
The New York Yankees and the Baltimore Orioles play the first of a three-game series on Friday, July 22, 2022 at the Oriole Park at Camden Yards.
New York is sitting in first place of the American League East standings at 64-30. In games away from Yankee Stadium they’ve earned a 27-18 record.

New York Yankees vs. Baltimore Orioles Betting Prediction
The Orioles send RHP Tyler Wells to the mound against New York’s top-ranked scoring offense on Friday night (5.40 RSPG), who’s having an excellent sophomore campaign sitting 7-5 with a 3.38 ERA in 18 appearances this season; which already includes a trio of solid outings against the Yankees (14 IP, 2.57 ERA, 0.93 WHIP).
On the flip side, the Yankees send RHP Jameson Taillon to the hill against Baltimore’s 20th ranked scoring offense tonight (4.20 RSPG), who’s also yielded solid numbers sitting 10-2 with a 3.86 ERA across 18 starts for New York; despite his trio of lackluster performances against Baltimore (14.1 IP, 7 ER).
I’ll back Baltimore here, as Taillon has tossed six innings or less and allowed three runs or more in six of his last eight starts for the Yankees (5.73 ERA, 1.33 WHIP); setting the stage for a lopsided pitching matchup against Wells, who’s 6-1 with a 2.64 ERA across his last nine outings for the Orioles (1.01 WHIP).
Score Prediction: Orioles 6, Yankees 4
