Pick: Orioles ML (-135)

The Baltimore Orioles and the New York Yankees will open up a huge early season series at Camden Yards in Baltimore on Monday night. The two top teams in the American League East division will square off for the first time this season, with first place potentially being on the line in this huge clash. Baltimore comes into this game after dropping two out of three against Oakland, and New York comes into this game after taking two out of three against Milwaukee. It has been a mixed bag of results for both of these teams as of late and they will look to get back on track against each other through the week. 

Clarke Schmidt will toe the rubber in the opening game of the four game weekday series for the New York Yankees on Monday night against the Baltimore Orioles. He comes into this game without a single blemish on his record, and he will look to finish off the month of April by picking up his third victory of the regular season. He will also look to lower his Earned Run Average which currently sits at 3.55 through his first five appearances of the 2024 Major League Baseball season. He has put up quality numbers throughout the early part of the regular season, and he will look to keep that trend alive with another solid performance here on Monday night against Baltimore. 

This will arguably be one of his toughest games of the season to date, as he faces a lethal lineup of hitters that has led Baltimore to a solid start of the year. The New York Yankees come into this game as winners of 19 out of their first 29 games on the season. They will look to open up this series with a win and get past the 20 win mark with a solid performance on Monday night on the road against the Orioles. This is an important divisional series and the New York Yankees have been a middle of the road team against the American League East winning five out of nine games. All of those games have come against the Tampa Bay Rays or the Toronto Blue Jays and this will be their first opportunity against Baltimore this season.

The Baltimore Orioles come into this game looking to rebound after a less than spectacular series against the Oakland Athletics. Baltimore dropped two out of three games against the Athletics, and they will look to bounce back in the game of this series on Monday night at home against the Yankees. This is a massive opportunity for Baltimore to get themselves back on track to end the month of April and potentially take over first place in the American League East division with a sweep of the New York Yankees this week. They were projected to take this division and to nobody's surprise they will have a dogfight on their hands throughout the entire year from all four teams within the division. Winning divisional matchups will be key for the Orioles this season if they want to establish themselves as a legitimate threat to bring home a World Series title.

Grayson Rodriguez will get the baseball for Baltimore in this series opening matchup and he has been elite throughout the early part of the season. Despite being betting favorites coming into this game on Monday night at home, that is something to keep an eye on, as the starting pitching matchup will likely set the tone and be the difference in this game. Both starting pitchers are off to an incredible start of the year, but Rodriguez has looked solid on a whole different level, as opposed to Clarke Schmidt. He will be looking for his fourth victory of the season here on Monday night against the New York Yankees as he looks to lead Baltimore to their 18th win in 28 games.

Betting trends to consider in this matchup:

- Baltimore is 9-6 at home 

- Baltimore is 3-0 against the AL East

- Baltimore is 14-9 as a favorite

I look for this to be a close and competitive matchup throughout night innings on Monday night, as I look for both of the starting pitchers to go deep into this ballgame. I could easily see this game remaining score throughout the early innings before the offices start to wake up in the middle innings and towards the end of the ball game. In the end, I do look for the Baltimore Orioles to get the victory over the New York Yankees at home on Monday night to open up the first of this four game series in a positive direction.
