According to oddsmakers, the Angels are favored on the road, as they are getting odds of -120 to win, while the Mariners are listed with a money line of +110 to prevail. The over/under total for the contest is listed at 8.5 runs. The public betting currently has 60% going on Los Angeles on the road. This information is subject to change, however, so be sure to check out our MLB Public Betting Page for updated figures on the game.

Angels one of the best on the road

The Angels have posted an impressive 11-2 record on the road this season and they are coming off a sweep at home of the Baltimore Orioles to move to 19-12 overall. Los Angeles is putting up 5.00 runs per game this season while allowing 4.45 per contest.

Garrett Richards get the start for the Angels tonight. He is making his seventh start of the year and is 3-1 on the season with a 4.88 ERA and a 1.52 WHIP. Over 27.2 innings of work, Richards has 37 strikeouts with 19 walks.

Seattle finding ways to win

The Mariners are coming off a 4-1 win over Oakland on Thursday for its seventh win in nine games. Seattle is now 18-12 overall and 7-6 at home. The Mariners are averaging 4.67 runs per game on offense while allowing 4.57 per contest.

Mike Leake gets the start for Seattle on Friday. He has started six games this year and is 3-2 with a 6.48 ERA and a 1.53 WHIP. He has allowed at least four runs in his last three starts. Over 33.1 innings of work this season, Leake has 22 strikeouts with 11 walks.

MLB Betting Trends

Los Angeles

The Angels have won 11 of their last 12 road games and six of their last seven against AL West opponents. They also have won eight of Richard’s last 10 Friday starts.

Seattle

Seattle is just 3-10 in its last 13 games against a team with a winning percentage over .600 and 1-7 in their last eight home games against a team with a road winning percentage over .600.

Prediction:

The Angels have been great on the road and I think that will continue on Friday. Seattle has played well over the last few weeks, but Leake is regressing as a starter. He faces a really tough Los Angeles lineup tonight and I think the Angels will be able to light him up early and hold Seattle off from there.

 

The Pick: Los Angeles Angels -120
