Total: 9.50 | -113.00 Over
After yesterday's 2-1 Yankees win look for the bats to come right back to life here. This is an ideal set up as each of the starting pitchers involved in this one had been struggling but now each enters this start off their best outing of the year thus far. In other words, a regression to the mean can be expected here. Look for things to quickly return to normal for the Orioles John Means and the Yankees JA Happ. Means, despite a strong start against the Mets in his last appearance, is still just 1-3 with a 6.58 ERA this season. Also, he has allowed 7 homers in the 18 and 1 / 3 innings spanning his last 4 outings! The Yankees crushed him for 5 earned runs in just 2 and 1 / 3 innings in his only start against them this year. New York's Happ, prior to a strong outing in his most recent start, had allowed 4 earned runs in 3 of his first 5 starts this season. That included allowing 4 earned runs in 4 innings against the Orioles in his lone appearance against them this season. Per our computer math model, both pitchers struggle again in this match-up and it goes soaring over the total in complete contrast to yesterday's pitchers' duel. Bet the OVER in the New York Yankees game in early afternoon action Sunday.
