Seattle not finding consistency

The Mariners have been alternating wins and losses over their last 10 games, including dropped two of three at Detroit this weekend. Seattle is now 22-17 overall and 14-9 on the road. The Mariners are now putting up 4.69 runs per game this season while allowing 4.62 per contest.

Wade LeBlanc gets just his third start of the year tonight. He has appeared in seven games for the Mariners and pitched a total of 22.2 innings. LeBlanc has yet to earn a decision as he has 18 strikeouts with four walks, a 3.18 ERA and a 1.19 WHIP.

Twins still pushing in AL Central race

The Twins are coming off a 2-1 loss at the Angels on Sunday, but they still have won seven of their last nine games coming into today. Minnesota is now 17-19 overall and 7-7 at home. The Twins are putting up 4.39 runs per game this season while allowing 4.86 per contest.

Jake Odorizzi gets the start for the Twins tonight. He is 3-2 through eight starts this year with a 3.83 ERA and a 1.32 WHIP. Odorizzi has pitched 42.1 innings this season and has 38 strikeouts with 20 walks.

MLB Betting Trends

Seattle

The Mariners have won their last seven games following a loss and they have won six of LeBlanc’s last seven starts. However, they are just 2-5 in their last seven Monday games.

Minnesota

The Twins have won 10 of their last 11 home games against a left-handed starter and they are 9-4 in their last 13 home games against a winning team.

Prediction:

The Mariners seem to like to bounce back-and-forth, but I don’t feel great about LeBlanc on the mound to face a Twins team that is on an upswing right now. He doesn’t get deep into games and the Twins are going to be able to get a solid start from Odorizzi I believe. After a long road trip, Minnesota should be up for some home cooking as they now find themselves squarely in the hunt in the AL Central.

 

The Pick: Minnesota Twins -105
