Seattle Mariners DFS Spin
Kyle Lewis went 2-for-3 with a steal against the Padres on Sunday. Lewis got on base with a single off of Yu Darvish to lead off the second inning. He then stole second base for his second steal of the season. Lewis later added a base hit in the sixth off Darvish. The two-hit game brings his batting average up to .240. The 25-year-old former Rookie of the Year is off to a slow start after landing on the injured list with a bone bruise in his knee to begin the year.
Oakland A’s DFS Spin
Matt Olson went 2-for-3 with a home run, two runs scored, and a walk in a 6-5 loss against the Angels on Sunday. Olson drove in the first run of the game with a 111.7 mile per hour solo blast to right field off of Dylan Bundy to lead off the second inning. He added a base hit off of Bundy in the third inning that was also scorched at 106.1 miles per hour. His groundout in the fifth inning would actually be his hardest-hit ball on the day at 112 miles per hour. The 27-year-old slugger is having a great season at the plate with 12 homers to go with a .268 batting average and 28 RBI. For a power-hitting first baseman like Olson, you'll take that average all day. What might be most impressive is the fact that Olson has struck out in only 17.7 percent of his plate appearances, a vast improvement over the 31.4 percent he posted last season.
Mariners vs. A’s Betting Prediction
The under is 9-4-1 in the last 14 meetings between these two teams and is 4-0 in the A’s last four games as a favorite. The under is also 4-1 in the A’s last five games versus a left-handed starter and has cashed the last six time the Mariners have played on Monday.
