Tigers drop another

The Tigers suffered a 5-4 loss at Seattle on Friday after picking up a 3-2 win on Thursday night. Detroit has alternated wins and losses over its last five games. Detroit is now 20-24 overall and 8-14 on the road. The Tigers are scoring 4.43 runs per game this season while allowing 4.70 per contest.

Mike Fiers takes the mound for the Tigers tonight. He has started seven games this season and has a 4-2 record with a 4.23 ERA and a 1.20 WHIP. Fiers has pitched 38.1 innings this season and has 26 strikeouts with six walks.

Mariners bounce back

The Mariners put an end to their first losing streak in some time on Friday with a 5-4 victory. Seattle comes into tonight’s game 25-19 overall and 10-10 at home. The Mariners are putting up 4.57 runs per game this year while allowing 4.55 per contest.

James Paxton gets the start for the Mariners tonight. He has started nine games this season and has a 2-1 record with a 3.52 ERA and a 1.12 WHIP. Paxton has thrown 53.2 innings and has 71 strikeouts with 19 walks.

MLB Betting Trends

Detroit

The Tigers have lost 14 of their last 19 on the road and they have lost 21 of their last 29 games against AL West opponents.

Seattle

Seattle has won six of its last seven Saturday games and they also have won five of Paxton’s last seven starts.

Prediction:

The Mariners haven’t been a real consistent team, but Paxton has been consistently strong on the mound and his ability to get strikeouts should lead to a lot of K’s tonight against the Tigers. Detroit doesn’t have an offense that can dominate a strong pitcher like him and their bullpen won’t be able to hold Seattle back. I like the Mariners to come away with another win.

 

The Pick: Seattle Mariners -270
