The Mariners have been edged in the first two games of this series, losing 7-6 and 3-2. Seattle falls to 69-52 overall and 33-28 on the road with the loss. Seattle is averaging 4.19 runs per game this year while giving up 4.39 per contest.

Mike Leake gets the start for the Mariners this afternoon. It is his 25th start of the season and he comes into the game with an 8-7 record, a 4.11 ERA and a 1.31 WHIP. Leake has 90 strikeouts and 30 walks over 146.2 innings.

Athletics win third straight

Oakland has won four straight coming into today, with their last three wins coming by one run. Oakland is now 72-48 overall and 35-23 at home. The Athletics are putting up 4.76 runs per game this year while giving up 4.20 per contest.

Brett Anderson gets the start for Oakland this afternoon. Anderson is 2-3 through 10 starts this year and he has a 4.53 ERA and a 1.41 WHIP. He has pitched 47.2 innings this year and has 25 strikeouts and 11 walks.

MLB Betting Trends

Seattle

The Mariners have won eight of Leake’s last 10 starts when on four days of rest and seven of his last nine road starts overall.

Oakland

The Athletics have won their last seven Wednesday games and they are 13-3 in their last 16 division games.

Prediction:

The Athletics have done a great job of grinding out wins as of late and I think they can do the same. Leake has a good ERA against the Athletics this year, posting a 2.84 ERA through two starts. Anderson has allowed just two runs or less in five of his last seven appearances, including three shutout performances. I like Oakland’s hitting more than Seattle’s and the Athletics have the experience of winning close games right now.

 

The Pick: Oakland Athletics -130
