3* MLB SMASH on Yankees -148
After getting swept at Tampa Bay over the weekend, I expect this proud Yankees franchise to bounce back strong against a club it has defeated 46 times in the last 61 meetings.
The O's don't appear to be in good hands with Matusz as they are 0-8 in his last 8 starts as an underdog, 0-7 in his last 7 starts with the total set at 9.0-10.5, 0-4 in his last 4 starts vs. the AL East and 0-4 in his last 4 home starts. It is also worth noting that the Orioles are 1-5 in Matusz's last 6 starts vs. the Yankees.
The Yankees, meanwhile, are 5-0 in Nova's last 5 series-opening starts and 6-0 in his last 6 road starts vs. a team with a winning record. We'll take the Yanks.
