Rough week for the Free Plays in MLB for Craig. But the good news is the five-star plays have been on fire, going 9-2 in his MLB top play of each day!! Today Sports Handicapper Craig from CT Sports Picks has two strong plays, and to break the losing streak, he is going to give one of his top plays as his free pick play. Let's look at the records, trends, and breakdown.


Baltimore Orioles: 16-24, 5-13 away (Eaton 2-4, 7.93 ERA)

New York Yankees: 23-17, 12-7 home (Chamberlain 2-1, 3.76 ERA)

Betting Trends

-Orioles are 7-20 in their last 27 road games vs. a right-handed starter.

-Orioles are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings.

-Yankees are 5-1 in Chamberlains last 6 home starts.

-Yankees are 43-18 in their last 61 during game 3 of a series.

The New York Yankees have been on fire, winning nine in a row and since A-Rod came back, they have outscored opponents 52-25. The new Yankee Stadium plays well for NY, as they lead the majors in homers and every player can hit it out at any time. After struggling early in the season, the starting pitchers in the last nine wins have been great with a sub 3.00 ERA.

Chamberlin will have extra motivation on the mound today, as HUFF mocked his fist pump after hitting HR in Baltimore a few weeks ago. Chamberlin will be lights out tonight and shut down BALT, who has been struggling to score. NY is 5-3 this year verse BALT, and in each of the wins they won by two or more runs, so don't fear giving up the run... EASY WINNER!! SCORE: NYY 7, BALT 3
