Video Transcript

- We have two MLB games to preview for Wednesday, August 4th, starting with the Orioles and Yankees. The Yankees are minus 278 and the total is 10. Starting for Baltimore is Matt Harvey. He's 6 and 10 with a 6.2 ERA, 72 strikeouts and 27 walks. On the mound for New York is Jameson Taillon. He's 7 and 4 with a 4.11 ERA, 98 strikeouts and 31 walks.

If you've been betting on baseball this season, then you might have heard of Matt Harvey day. Every time Matt Harvey starts, it's typically profitable to fade him that day and take the other side. But actually, he's not allowed a single earned run in his last three starts. I'm not going to fade Matt Harvey because there's no value in that.

I'm going to look to the total. It's set pretty high at 10, and it's most likely due to Harvey on the mound for Baltimore and the fact that New York's offense has gotten a lot of attention since the addition of Rizzo and Gallo. This total is set high enough for me to be comfortable betting the under. In each of these team's last 10 games they've only seen the total hit 10 or higher in about one or two of them. This is an overreaction so I'll take the under.
