Angels win streak ends

The Angels had their four-game win streak come to an end Saturday night in a 9-8 loss over 11 innings to the Mariners. That loss moves their record to 20-3 on the season and 12-3 on the road. Los Angeles is putting up 5.09 runs per game this season while allowing 4.45 per contest.

Shohei Ohtani gets the start this afternoon for the Angels. He has started four games this season and has a 2-1 record with a 4.43 ERA and a 1.13 WHIP. Over 20.1 innings of work, he has 26 strikeouts with nine walks.

Mariners keeping pace

Seattle bounced back from Friday’s loss with another victory, their fifth in seven games. The Mariners have not lost back-to-back games since April 23. Seattle is now 19-13 overall and 8-7 at home. The Mariners are averaging 4.66 runs per game on offense while allowing 4.69 per contest.

Felix Hernandez gets the start for the Mariners today. He is 4-2 through seven starts with a 4.89 ERA and a 1.27 WHIP. King Felix has pitched 38.2 innings this year and has 33 strikeouts with 16 walks.

MLB Betting Trends

Los Angeles

The Angels have won nine of their last 10 road games against a right-handed starter. They also have won four straight games overall against a righty.

Seattle

The Mariners have won eight of Hernandez’ last 10 starts against AL West opponents and four of his last five starts overall.

Prediction:

Hernandez doesn’t have great numbers, but he still is pitching competitively enough to keep his team in games. Ohtani has had a little bit of his early luster start to ware off and I think he will have some struggles this afternoon at Seattle. The Mariners have been one of the better teams in the league the last few weeks and I think they will find a way to hand the Angels another rare road loss today.

 

The Pick: Seattle Mariners +130
