MLB Odds: Orioles Tested as Wild Card Race Heats Up

Betting On New York Yankees Mlb



To be the best you have to beat the best. That’s a lesson the Baltimore Orioles are all too familiar with. This Friday, they’ll get the opportunity to square off against the AL East-leading New York Yankees with more than only their pride on the line. A series win could help the wild card-contending Orioles take a stranglehold on one of the league’s final two playoff berths.

If the O’s are to squeeze into the postseason for the first time since 1997, however they’ll need to not only prove that they can edge out competitors in Oakland, Tampa Bay and Detroit, but that they deserve the spot on the October calendar.


After hopping out in front of the AL wild card pack early in 2012, the club hasn’t looked back. Now Buck Showalter’s club is within arms reach of making it happen. This weekend the Orioles will take to the road against the Yankees, desperate for a handful of late season victories.


If they get them, there’s one major hurdle cleared between the O’s and the top of the MLB futures. If they don’t, then maybe they aren’t quite ready to be the best after all.
