Seattle Mariners Fantasy Spin

It's hard to glean much from 22 at-bats, but when those 22 at-bats produce four doubles and five homers, it's hard not to take notice. Dan Vogelbach has made a strong case for increased playing time going forward, and he gets the platoon advantage on Thursday in a juicy matchup against Lopez, who has allowed a .309/.385/.435 triple slash to righty batters in his brief big-league career.

Kansas City Royals Fantasy Spin

Are we experiencing an Alex Gordon resurgence? That might be a stretch, but through 10 games he's batting .313/.442/.531 with a pair of dingers and 10 RBIs. There's a good chance Gordon will keep rolling against Leake, who is volatile because he allows so much contact.

MLB Betting Trends

Seattle

The Mariners are 5-1 in Mike Leake’s last six starts and are 5-1 in his last six outings versus American League Central opponents.

Kansas City

The Royals are 1-4 in Pablo Lopez’s last five starts following a team loss in their previous game.

Prediction:

The over is 4-0 in Lopez’s last four starts overall and is 5-0 in his last five home outings. I doubt he’s the pitcher that figures out this Seattle offense. Meanwhile, the over is 4-1 in Leake’s last five starts overall and is 5-1 in his last six outings versus the American League Central opponents. For some reason, Kauffman Stadium has played like a hitter’s park in the early going.

The Pick: Mariners/Royals over 10
