Seattle Mariners Fantasy Spin
Edwin Encarnacion went 1-for-3 with a walk during Wednesday's loss to the Indians. It was a pitchers' duel in this one and the Mariners only managed three hits in the contest. Encarnacion is getting up there in years (36 of them) but age hasn't affected his bat. He is slashing .281/.397/.531 with five home runs and 14 RBI in 18 games. He has 11 walks against 13 strikeouts in 64 at-bats on the season.
Los Angeles Angels Fantasy Spin
Tommy La Stella hit his fourth homer Wednesday in the loss to the Rangers. Unfortunately, La Stella's homer came in his one at-bat with none on; he had six runners on in his other three plate appearances, but he couldn't move any along. It's odd to see La Stella sporting a .184 average and a .747 OPS on the season. He came into the year with a .264 career average and just a .711 OPS.
MLB Betting Trends
The Mariners have won six of their last seven meetings with the Angels and are 4-1 in their last five road games versus the Halos.
Los Angeles Angels
The Angels are 7-3 in their last 10 games versus the Mariners when Felix Hernandez starts for Seattle.
The under has been profitable in this series, cashing inf our of the previous five meetings between these two teams. The under is also 15-6-1 in Hernandez’s last 22 starts versus the Angels and is 7-2 in his last nine road outings against L.A. This is a hitter’s park and the Angels had a difficult time generating runs at hitter-friendly Globe Life Park the past two nights. Thus, I see the under being the safest bet on the board.
The Pick: Mariners/Angels UNDER 10
