MLB Betting Trends
The Mariners are 15-7 in their last 22 Saturday games. The under is 9-4 in the last 13 Seattle road games.
The under is 8-2 in the last 10 meetings. Oakland is 10-1 in its last 11 Saturday games.
Paxton has enjoyed a fine season and can dominate on any given night. The Athletics strike out a lot and can have their struggles against left-handed pitching. Mengden had a fantastic stretch early in the season, but has come back down to life. I like Seattle here as the small fave.
