Seattle Mariners Fantasy Spin

Tim Beckham homered in the top of the ninth to break a 3-3 tie as the Mariners beat the Angels 5-3 on Friday. Omar Narvaez followed Beckham's solo shot with one of his own. The Mariners homered four times in all, with Jay Bruce and Daniel Vogelbach also leaving the year. Beckham's homer was his fifth of the year, but his first since April 6.

Los Angeles Angels Fantasy Spin

David Fletcher went 3-for-3 with a walk from the leadoff spot Friday against the Mariners. Fletcher has almost no power and only modest steal ability, so there's little fantasy potential here. Still, he's one of the best options the Angels have for the top of their lineup. He raised his average to .305 tonight, and he has a 3/5 K/BB ratio in 64 plate appearances.

MLB Betting Trends

Seattle

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.

Prediction:

The Mariners scored 11 runs versus the Angels on Thursday night and struck for five more last night in back-to-back wins. While this Seattle offense is loaded with power, I do think tonight’s matchup with Cahill provides bettors with a good fade opportunity. The Mariners’ projected lineup has a 21.7% strikeout rate against right-handed pitchers and Cahill owned a 22.2% strikeout rate through 20 starts a year ago (that figure is down to 20.0% through four outings this year, but that’s not a big enough drop to be concerned). There’s no question there is some risk here, but bats eventually cool off and this is typically a pitcher’s park. I don’t see the Mariners scoring more than four runs tonight.

The Pick: Mariners Team Total UNDER 4.5 (-135)
