Angels flirting with .500
The Angels are coming off an 8-2 loss at Baltimore on Sunday and they have lost seven of their last nine games. Los Angeles is now 43-42 overall and 23-21 on the road. The Angels are putting up 4.45 runs per game this year while allowing 4.25 per contest.
Andrew Heaney gets the start for the Angels this evening. He has started 14 games this season and has a 4-5 record with a 3.95 ERA and a 1.21 WHIP. Heaney has pitched 82.0 innings and has 76 strikeouts with 24 walks.
Mariners on a hot streak
The Mariners have been beating up on bad teams the last week, sweeping the Orioles and Royals for a 7-game win streak. Seattle is now 54-31 overall and 28-14 at home. The Mariners are scoring just 4.39 runs per game while giving up 4.13 per contest.
Wade LeBlanc takes the mound for Seattle tonight. He has started 11 games and has a 3-0 record with a 3.38 ERA and a 1.21 WHIP. LeBlanc has pitched a total of 72.0 innings and has 56 strikeouts with 15 walks.
MLB Betting Trends
The Angels are 3-11 in their last 14 road games and they have lost eight straight road games against left-handed starters.
Seattle has won 20 of its last 26 at home and 22 of its last 29 following a win. The Mariners have also won nine of their last 12 series openers.
LeBlanc hasn’t been great in recent starts, but Seattle has found the right formula to beat the teams they should this season. I think the Mariners will be able to find their way past Heaney and the Angels. Los Angeles has struggled with left-handed pitching and is in a funk overall.
The Pick: Seattle Mariners -115
