Mariners get on track
After going in a slump while playing the Yankees and Red Sox, Seattle was able to get back to winning on Monday with a 5-3 victory at Baltimore. Seattle is currently 48-31 overall and 23-17 on the road. The Mariners are putting up 4.39 runs per game this season while allowing 4.24 per contest.
James Paxton is getting the start for the Mariners this evening. He has started 16 games and has a 6-2 record with a 3.72 ERA and a 1.12 WHIP. Paxton has pitched 96.2 innings this season and has 124 strikeouts with 29 walks.
Orioles drop second straight
The Orioles dropped a second straight game on Monday, scoring three runs for the second straight day as well. Baltimore is now 23-54 overall and 11-24 at home. The Orioles are putting up just 3.68 runs per game this season while allowing 5.17 runs per contest.
Kevin Gausman gets the start for the Orioles this evening. He is 3-6 through 15 starts and has a 4.38 ERA and a 1.39 WHIP. Gausman has pitched a total of 88.1 innings and has 84 strikeouts with 24 walks.
MLB Betting Trends
The Mariners have won 16 of their last 23 games following a win and 21-8 in their last 29 games against right-handed starters.
The Orioles have lost 20 of their last 28 games at home and they have also lost five of their last seven games against a left-handed starter.
Amazingly, Baltimore is just 27-73 in its last 100 games. Gausman hasn’t been terrible on the mound, but the Orioles have lost seven straight with him on the mound. Paxton has been very strong for the Mariners this year, earning a lot of strikeouts. I expect him to cut through this Baltimore lineup while the Orioles suffer yet another loss.
The Pick: Seattle Mariners -135
