After a strong month of play, the Mariners find themselves currently in the second Wild Card spot in the AL, six games ahead of the field. The Mariners are 57-34 overall and 26-17 on the road. Seattle is putting up 4.32 runs per game this season while allowing 4.13 per contest.
Mike Leake is getting the start for the Mariners on Tuesday night. He has pitched 18 games this season and has an 8-5 record with a 4.11 ERA and a 1.25 WHIP. Leake has pitched 111.2 innings this season and has 70 strikeouts with 25 walks.
Angels hovering at .500
The Angels have leveled off right at the .500 mark. They have alternated wins and losses over their last six games. Los Angeles is now 46-45 overall and 22-22 at home. Los Angeles is scoring 4.34 runs per game on offense while allowing 4.19 per contest.

MLB Betting Trends
The Mariners have won nine of their last 11 Tuesday games and five of their last six division games. They also have won Leake’s last six road starts.
The Angels have won nine of their last 13 home games. However, they are just 6-17 in their last 23 games following an off day.
On paper, these two teams are pretty similar in terms of run productions and runs allowed. However, the records are quite different. Los Angeles is 11 games behind the Mariners in the standings. Seattle finds ways to win while Los Angeles is finding ways to lose. The pitching matchup may favor the Angels tonight, but I don’t trust the Angels to put it all together to win this one. Seattle is having a great month by beating the teams they should beat.
The Pick: Seattle Mariners +150
