Minnesota quiet at the plate
The Twins dropped their second straight in a 2-1 loss at Seattle on Friday. They have scored just one run in both of the losses. Minnesota is now 21-25 overall with a 10-13 record on the road. The Twins are putting up 4.11 runs per game this season while allowing 4.48 runs per contest.
Jake Odorizzi gets the start for the Twins this evening. He has started 10 games this season and has a 3-2 record with a 3.17 ERA and a 1.26 WHIP. Odorizzi has pitched a total of 54 innings this year and has 55 strikeouts with 23 walks.
Seattle pitching locked in
The Mariners have won six of their last seven games after Friday’s victory. In the six wins, they have held five of the opponents to two runs or less. Seattle is now 30-20 overall and 13-10 at home. The Mariners are putting up 4.40 runs per game this season while giving up 4.22 runs per contest.
Wade LeBlanc gets the start for the Mariners tonight. He has started four games this year and appeared in a total of nine. LeBlanc has a 2.65 ERA with a 1.12 WHIP but hasn’t recorded a decision. He has 27 strikeouts and five walks over 34 innings of work.
MLB Betting Trends
The Twins are just 1-4 in their last five games against a winning team and 1-6 in their last seven games after scoring two runs or less in their previous game.
Seattle has won four straight home games and seven of its last eight Saturday games. They also have won four straight over AL Central opponents.
The Mariners are locked in on the mound and I think LeBlanc should be able to have a good start for the team tonight. Minnesota has looked pretty good with Odorizzi on the mound, but I trust Seattle’s hitters at home more than the Minnesota hitters on the road.
The Pick: Seattle Mariners -120
