Angels fall to .500
The Angels dropped the series opener, 4-1, on Tuesday to fall to the .500 mark. Los Angeles is now 43-43 overall and 23-22 on the road. The Angels are putting up 4.41 runs per game this year while allowing 4.24 per contest.
Garrett Richards gets the start for the Angels this afternoon. He has started 14 games this year and has a 4-4 record with a 3.42 ERA and a 1.29 WHIP. Richards has logged 68.1 innings this year and has 78 strikeouts with 32 walks.
Mariners on a hot streak
The Mariners increased their win streak to eight games with Tuesday’s win. They have held their last five opponents to a combined total of 8 runs. Seattle is now 55-31 overall and 29-14 at home. The Mariners are scoring just 4.38 runs per game while giving up 4.09 per contest.
Mike Leake is the starter for Seattle this afternoon. He has pitched 17 innings this season and has an 8-4 record with a 4.01 ERA and a 1.21 WHIP. Leake has pitched a total of 107.2 innings and has 66 strikeouts with 24 walks.
MLB Betting Trends
The Angels are 3-12 in their last 15 road games and 1-6 in their last seven games following a loss.
Seattle has won 21 of its last 27 at home and four straight division games. They are also 23-7 in their last 30 games following a win.
The Mariners are rolling and they have won nine of Leake’s last 10 starts. He has went at least 7 innings in his last two outings and at least six in eight straight starts. These two teams are trending in opposite directions and I like Seattle to keep up its strong run while the Angels continue to fall back.
The Pick: Seattle Mariners -110
