Mariners win first two

Seattle has picked up two big wins at Arizona to open this series, winning 6-3 on Friday and 4-3 on Saturday. The Mariners are now 74-56 overall and 36-28 on the road. Seattle is averaging just 4.17 runs per game this year while allowing 4.47 per contest.

Mike Leake gets the start for the Mariners on Sunday. He has started 25 games this year and has an 8-7 record with a 3.90 ERA and a 1.26 WHIP. Leake has 96 strikeouts with 31 walks over 154.2 innings of work.

Diamondbacks end win streak

Arizona has dropped the first two games of the series and the Diamondbacks have scored just three runs in each of the two games. Arizona is now 71-58 overall and 34-31 at home. The Diamondbacks are putting up 4.51 runs per game on offense while allowing 3.88 per contest.

Zack Greinke gets the start for the Diamondbacks this afternoon. He has a 12-8 record through 26 starts and has a 3.06 ERA and a 1.05 WHIP. Greinke has 165 strikeouts and 32 walks over 162.0 innings.

MLB Betting Trends

Seattle

The Mariners are 8-2 in their last 10 road games against a team with a winning home record and they are also 8-2 in Leake’s last 10 road starts.

Arizona

The Diamondbacks are 13-6 in their last 19 interleague home games and 8-2 in their last 10 games following a loss.

Prediction:

Seattle has had Arizona’s number in this series, but I see Arizona getting the nod on Sunday. The Diamondbacks are turning to one of their best pitchers in Greinke. I think he should be able to contain this Seattle lineup. Leake has been pretty strong as well, but I just think Arizona is due to break out at the plate this afternoon.

 

The Pick: Arizona Diamondbacks -165
