The New York Yankees are a solid 38-18 in Ivan Nova's last 56 starts on grass. New York is 5-0 its last 5 Tuesday games. Baltimore is 1-5 its last 6 games vs. a right-handed starter. The Orioles are only 6-14 their last 20 vs. a team with a winning record. Take the NY Yankees over Baltimore for another Best Bet winner. Other plays include Oakland over Minnesota and Texas over Pittsburgh. Last week the MLB selections went 2-1 running the overall record to a very profitable 104-63.
