MLB Betting Trends
The Mariners are 16-40 in their last 56 games. Seattle is 0-4 in its last four Thursday games.
The Twins are 0-4 in the last four Pineda home starts. Minnesota is 4-1 in its last Thursday games.
Pineda is decidedly average with a high home run rate, but he typically gets good run support and that will likely continue today. Kikuchi has been struggling immensely and faces a Twins offense that is a huge reason why they have won two-thirds of their games. Seattle might have gotten lucky with the five errors by Minnesota yesterday, but expect the hosts to bounce back strong.
