Mariners bouncing back-and-forth
The Mariners have alternated wins and losses over their last eight games following a 5-2 loss at Toronto. Seattle is 20-15 this season with a 12-7 record on the road. The Mariners are now averaging 4.51 runs per game while giving up 4.66 per contest.
Mike Leake gets the start for Seattle tonight. Leake is 3-3 through seven starts this season and he has a 6.28 ERA with a 1.60 WHIP. Leake has pitched 38.2 innings and has 26 strikeouts with 15 walks. He has given up multiple runs in every start.
Jays trying to win rubber match
After splitting the first two games of this series, Toronto is trying to win for the third time in four games this evening. The Jays are now 20-17 overall and 10-8 at home. Toronto is averaging 5.00 runs per game this season while allowing 4.62 per contest.
J.A. Happ gets the start for the Blue Jays on Thursday night. Happ is 4-2 through seven starts with a 3.67 ERA and a 1.08 WHIP. Happ has pitched 41.2 innings and has 53 strikeouts with 11 walks.
MLB Betting Trends
The Mariners have won five straight following a loss and they have won six of their last eight road games. However, they are 1-6 in their last seven against AL East opponents.
The Blue Jays have won Happ’s last four home starts and five of his last six starts overall. They also have won 11 of his last 15 starts against AL West opponents.
I have a hard time seeing Leake end his poor starts tonight. He has given up multiple runs in every start and is on the road against a pretty productive Toronto lineup. Happ has been able to get deep into games and earn a lot of strikeouts. I think he will cause a lot of problems for the Seattle hitters.
The Pick: Toronto Blue Jays -155
