The New York Yankees have outscored the Baltimore Orioles 14-2 in the first two games of their three-game series at Yankee Stadium. The Yankees look for a three-game sweep today as -220 moneyline favorites, per BettingPros consensus odds.

Betting Impact:

Yankees starter Jameson Taillon is making his Yankees debut. He has not pitched since undergoing Tommy John surgery in 2019. Taillon was sharp in the spring, pitching to a 1.08 ERA in 8 ⅓ total innings. Baltimore's John Means threw seven shutout innings against Boston on Opening Day, allowing one hit and striking out five. The 2019 All-Star has struggled in his career at Yankee Stadium, going 1-1 with a 5.54 career ERA. However, he has limited most of the Yankees’ big bats in his short career, as Aaron Judge, Aaron Hicks, and DJ LeMahieu are a combined 5-for-24 against him.
