According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Blue Jays are -124 money line favorites versus the Mariners, who have odds of +114 of pulling off the upset tonight at home. With J.A. Happ set to oppose Hisashi Iwakuma in the pitching matchup, the over/under sits at 8 runs.
TORONTO: The Blue Jays are 7-1 in Happ's last eight road starts and have won 22 of his last 28 starts overall. They're also 7-1 in Happ's last eight outings in which he pitches the second game of a series and are 7-1 in his last eight starts versus American League West opponents. They're 15-3 in his last 18 starts coming off four days of rest as well.
SEATTLE: The Mariners are 8-2 in Iwakuma's last 10 starts versus American League East opponents and are 8-2 in his last 10 home outings as well. They're 11-3 in his last 14 starts following a quality start in his last appearance and are also 16-5 in his last 21 outings when he pitches the second game of a series.
OUR PREDICTION: Despite winning last night, the Blue Jays are just 2-6 in their last eight games in Seattle, whereas the Mariners are 4-1 in Iwakuma's last five starts versus Toronto. The Blue Jays are also 2-5 in their last seven games versus a team with a winning record and are just 1-6 in their last seven games coming off a win. With the Mariners winning seven of 10 and the Blue Jays just 5-5 over their last 10, Seattle is a solid underdog play tonight.
