Mariners in a funk
The Mariners were on an impressive winning stretch, but they have lost six of their last seven games, losing to the Red Sox and Yankees. Seattle is currently 47-31 overall and 22-17 on the road. The Mariners are putting up 4.38 runs per game this season while allowing 4.26 per contest.
Felix Hernandez is getting the start for the Mariners this evening. He has started 16 games this season and has a 6-6 record with a 5.14 ERA and 1.37 WHIP. King Felix has pitched 89.1 innings this season and has 76 strikeouts with 32 walks.
Orioles leveling out
The Orioles are coming off a 7-3 loss at Atlanta, but they have won four of their last seven games. Baltimore is now 23-53 overall and 11-23 at home. The Orioles are putting up just 3.68 runs per game this season while allowing 5.17 runs per contest.
Andrew Cashner is getting the start for the Orioles this evening. He is making his 15th start of the season and he has a 2-8 record with a 4.72 ERA and 1.64 WHIP. Cashner has pitched a total of 76.1 innings this season and has 64 strikeouts with 34 walks.
MLB Betting Trends
The Mariners have won seven of their last 10 series openers and 20 of their last 28 against a right-handed starter.
The Orioles have lost 11 of their last 12 at home and they have lost eight of their last nine Monday games.
The Mariners haven’t been playing well lately, but they have been up against two of the better teams in baseball. I think getting a chance to face the Orioles will help them get back on track. King Felix has allowed just one earned run in three of his last four starts. He seems to be starting to get back to his old form.
The Pick: Seattle Mariners -120
