Mariners can’t find consistency
Seattle is coming off a 10-5 loss at Minnesota last night. They have alternated wins and losses over their last nine games. The Mariners are 29-43 on the season, 16-21 on the road and 47-22 with the over. Marco Gonzales will get the start tonight for Seattle. He is 6-6 on the year with a 4.77 ERA.
The Mariners have struggled with their pitching all season. They have a 5.39 team ERA with a 1.47 team WHIP. Offensively, Seattle is averaging 5.19 runs per game while hitting .243. Domingo Santana is leading the team with 14 doubles, 13 home runs and 49 RBI while Edwin Encarnacion has seven doubles, 21 home runs and 49 RBI.
Athletics get winning record
Oakland got over the .500 mark on Wednesday with a 6-2 win at Tampa Bay for its third win in four games. The Athletics are 35-34 on the season, 18-15 at home and 36-33 with the under. Chris Bassitt gets the start for Oakland today. He is 3-2 on the season with a 3.57 ERA.
The Athletics are right near the middle of the road in hitting and pitching. The team averages 4.89 runs per game while hitting .245. On the mound, Oakland has a 4.29 team ERA with a 1.30 team WHIP. Matt Chapman has been leading the team with 14 doubles, 16 home runs and 36 RBI. Khris Davis has 14 home runs with 35 RBI.
MLB Betting Trends
The Mariners have won four straight following a loss, but are 6-20 in their last 26 road games.
The Athletics have won five of their last six Friday games and six of their last seven games following a day off.
The Mariners have really struggled on the mound and Gonzales has been trending toward the negative in recent weeks. Bassit hasn’t been very good in his last four starts, himself. He has allowed at least three runs in all four. While Seattle has questionable pitching, their hitting can jump on a bad pitcher. Trends say Seattle will win following the loss and Oakland hasn’t been able to really get far from the .500 mark for a while now. I think the Mariners will be able to win a high-scoring game tonight.
MLB Prediction: Seattle Mariners +165
