Mariners on a small win streak

Seattle is coming off three straight wins over Detroit at home for its first 3-game win streak in weeks. The Mariners are now 27-19 overall and 15-9 on the road. Seattle is putting up 4.59 runs per game this season while allowing 4.43 per contest.

Mike Leake gets the start for the Mariners tonight. He has started nine games this season and has a 4-3 record with a 6.00 ERA and 1.53 WHIP. Leake has pitched a total of 51 innings this year and has 34 strikeouts with 16 walks.

Athletics getting hot

The Oakland Athletics are rolling along right now. They picked up a 4-game sweep of the Blue Jays in Toronto and have won six of their last seven games overall. Oakland is now 25-22 overall and 11-9 at home. The Athletics are scoring 4.72 runs per game this season while allowing 4.72 per contest as well.

Trevor Cahill gets the start for the Athletics on Tuesday night. He has started five games this season and has a 1-2 record with a 2.79 ERA and a 1.00 WHIP. Cahill has pitched a total of 29 innings so far and has 32 strikeouts with seven walks.

MLB Betting Trends

Seattle

The Mariners have won four of Leake’s last five road starts and nine of their last 13 road games. However, they are just 3-7 in their last 10 games following a win.

Oakland

The Athletics have won five straight against a right-handed starter and four of Cahill’s last five home starts.

Prediction:

I like the Athletics to stay hot tonight. Oakland has been on a roll and the A’s have Cahill on the mound. He’s been rolling along in his limited starts and keeping limited runners on the base paths. I don’t think Leake can get match what Cahill will do, especially on the road.

 

The Pick: Oakland Athletics -140
