MLB Betting Trends
The Mariners are 10-2 in their last 12 Saturday games. The over is 15-5-1 in the last 21 Seattle games on Saturday.
The Red Spx are 13-3 in their last 16 Saturday games. Boston is 11-4 in its last 15 home games.
These two teams brought the fireworks last night with the Red Sox getting the last laugh with a big finish. Rodriguez is the much better pitcher here and Seattle is struggling on this road trip, losing five in a row. Take Boston on the runline here as it has the firepower to win by multiple runs even with one less at-bat at home.
