MLB Betting Trends
The Rangers are just 2-6 in their last eight road games and 5-17 in their last 22 series openers. They also are just 7-19 in their last 26 Monday games.
The Mariners have won six of their last seven following a win and 16 of their last 21 against a right-handed starter. They also have won six straight at home.
The Mariners are on a roll right now and I am going to continue to ride them while they are hot. The pitching matchup is pretty balanced, but Seattle has been able to beat up on right-handed pitching and their bullpen is far superior to Texas’.
The Pick: Seattle Mariners -165
