Los Angeles Angels vs. Seattle Mariners MLB Betting Odds & Prediction from Larry Ness: May 4th 2017

Los Angeles Angels vs. Seattle Mariners
MLB Betting Prediction: Seattle -120 odds (May 4th 2017)

The Mariners opened the season 2-8 and while they aren’t exactly ‘on fire,’ they are 10-8 their last 18 games. Nelson Cruz got off to a slow start in 2017 but that’s pretty much a distant memory. He was 3-for-4 with an RBI in Wednesday’s 8-7 victory and is 20-for-43 during a 12-game hitting streak that has raised his batting average 109 points to .327.  He has five HRs and 17 RBI during his 12-game streak. Speaking of stars, LA’s Mike Trout, who was named AL Player of the Month for April, hit a two-run homer on Wednesday to extend his hitting streak to a career-best 16 games.!

The teams square off in the rubber game of the series tonight, as Alex Meyer (0-0, 4.91 ERA) takes on Ariel Miranda (2-2, 3.81 ERA). Meyer is being recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake to make his second start of the season, as Tyler Skaggs is expected to be out for 10-to-12 weeks with an oblique injury. Angels manager Mike Scioscia indicated the fill-in appearance isn’t a one-start deal and the club wants to take a long look at the 27-year-old, who stands 6-9.

Seattle’s Miranda has allowed a total of one run in his two victories and given up four in each of his two defeats. Miranda went 2-0 with a 3.71 ERA and .190 batting average against in three starts against the Angels last season (Seattle was 2-1).

I’m not sure just what Scioscia expects to see in Meyer. He is 0-0 with a 6.16 ERA in 19 innings in the minors this season, although maybe it’s his 24 strikeouts that has grabbed the manager’s interest. However, also note that Meyer has posted a 6.54 ERA in 10 career major league appearances (seven starts), including losing to Seattle last season, when he gave up four runs on five hits in four innings. Meanwhile, Miranda has fared well at Safeco Field in his brief big-league career, going 5-1 with a 3.48 ERA in 10 career appearances (eight starts), Take Seattle.

Los Angeles Angels vs. Seattle Mariners Betting Odds & Prediction from Will Rogers: May 2nd 2017

Los Angeles Angels vs. Seattle Mariners
Betting Prediction: Angels +137 odds (May 2nd 2017)

The set-up: The Angels used a sweep of the Mariners from April 7-9 to open the season 6-2, the team’s best eight-game start in 43 years. However, they then lost 10 of 12 to quickly go from division leader to 5 1/2 games behind Houston in the West. The Angels did get back on track last week though, with a 6-1 stretch to end April. The Angels enjoyed their first off-day in three weeks on Monday and now visit their AL West rivals, the Mariners, for the opener of a three-game set in Seattle. The Mariners capped a mostly forgettable first month of the season on Sunday, by wrapping up a 4-6 road trip through Oakland, Detroit and Cleveland with a 12-4 loss to the Indians. The Mariners opened the season 2-8 and begin May at 11-15.

The pitching matchup: Matt Shoemaker (1-1 & 4.73 ERA) gets the ball for Seattle and James Paxton (3-0 & 1.39 ERA) for the Mariners. Shoemaker picked up his first victory of the season Wednesday versus the Athletics (in his fifth start), allowing two runs on seven hits and a pair of walks over five innings. He has struck out 20 in 17 1/3 innings over his last three appearances and permitted two runs or fewer four times but he has managed only one quality start. Shoemaker is 4-4 with a 4.35 ERA in 11 career stats against Seattle (team is 7-4). Paxton did not allow an earned run in his first three starts of 2017 but then allowed five at Oakland on April 20. However, he regained his dominant form Wednesday at Detroit, allowing only four hits while striking out nine in seven scoreless innings to win for the third time in his last four turns. He has posted a 39-6 KW ratio for the season. Paxton is 3-2 with a 2.17 ERA in seven career starts against the Angels (team is 4-3).

The pick: Paxton’s been superb so far (just that one hiccup) and some think he’s finally about ready to fulfill his potential. I’m not one of them. The Angels come in on a 6-1 run and I expect those LA bats to get to Pxton and make Shoemaker’s job a little easier. Take the Angels

Toronto Blue Jays vs. Los Angeles Angels MLB Betting Odds & Pick from Larry Ness: April 24th 2017

Toronto Blue Jays vs. Los Angeles Angels
MLB Betting Pick: Angels -120 odds (April 24th 2017)

After back-to-back ALCS appearances, the 2017 Blue Jays opened the season 3-12. However, after a 6-2 win on Sunday in Anaheim (Jays scored all run sin the last two innings), they have a chance to win their first series of the season Monday night against the slumping Angels. LA opened the season 6-2 but has since lost 10 of 12 games.

The Angels hope to earn a split of this series with Jesse Chavez (1-3, 5.00 ERA) taking the mound against Francisco Liriano (1-1, 5.11 ER), Liriano had a ‘nightmare’ of a 2017 debut, allowing five runs on three hits and four walks while retiring just a single batter at Tampa Bay. However, his last two starts have been solid, allowing just two ERs on nine hits over 12 innings (1.50 ERA) with 16 Ks! However, he’s 2-6 with a 6.15 ERA over 10 career starts against the Angels (teams are 4-6).

Chavez was scheduled to start Sunday but was used in relief in Friday’s 13-inning contest. That hardly went well, as he allowed three runs on four hits and suffered his third consecutive loss. Chavez has had a pair of brief stints with the Blue Jays and in two starts against them is 0-2 with a 4.77 ERA. That one-inning relief stint has hurt Chavez’s 2017 numbers but note that in two of his three starts in 2017, he has allowed just one run.

The Angels have averaged 5.11 RPG at home and I’m looking for them to salvage a split in this series by earning a Monday night win.
