MLB Betting Trends
The Mariners have lost six straight road games and eight of their last 11 overall. However, they are 7-3 in their last 10 Sunday games.
The Angels are just 7-20 in their last 27 games against a left-handed starter despite winning nine of their last 13 home games against a winning team.
The Angels have taken control of the series, but I like Seattle today. The Angels struggle with left-handed pitching and they narrowly won, 4-3, in the other game with a lefty on the mound for Seattle. The Mariners are a team that needs to win low-scoring games and I think they find a way to do it behind a strong effort from Gonzales.
The Pick: Seattle Mariners +100
