Los Angeles Angels vs. Seattle Mariners
MLB Betting Pick: Seattle -129 odds (August 13th 2017)

Yes, the Astros have lost 11 of their last 14 games but they still own a 12-game margin in the AL West. The Angels, Mariners and Rangers can’t seriously believe that there is a chance of catching Houston but all three teams remain solidly in the highly-contested AL wild card race. The Angels have won five straight games (11 of their last 15) and have taken a half-game lead over the Twins for the AL’s second wild card spot. Seattle, despite losing the first three of this four-game home series with the Angels, sits just one game back in the race for the AL’s second wild card with 45 games remaining, Starters James Paxton, Felix Hernandez and Hisashi Iwakuma are all on the disabled list but Seattle manager  Scott Servais told reporters, “We’ve got to find a way to keep it rolling here. We can look at it as a challenge or look at it as a threat. We’ll take the challenge – and it’s going to be a challenge. There’s no doubt.”

Ariel Miranda (7-5 & 4.65 ERA) will take the mound for Seattle as it tries to avoid the dreaded four-game home sweep at the hands of the Angels. He’ll be opposed by LA’s Parker Bridwell (6-1 & 3.00 ERA), who has been a ‘savior’ for the Angels’ pitching staff. The Angels are a remarkable 9-1 in Bridwell’s 10 starts in 2017, giving him a moneyline mark of plus-$1117, which is better than every MLB starter not named Clayton Kershaw (19-2, plus-$1460)! Bridwell won his fourth straight decision Tuesday against Baltimore, allowing one run and six hits over seven innings. Meanwhile, Miranda saw his win-less streak extended to six starts in Oakland this past Tuesday, when he yielded six runs over five innings. However, Seattle is 3-3 in that stretch

What’s more, Miranda has been terrific when facing the Angels, going 4-0 with a 2.61 ERA in five career starts (team is 4-1). I say NO sweep here!

Seattle Mariners vs. Kansas City Royals MLB Over-Under Pick from Mike Lundin: August 5th 2017

| August 5, 2017

Seattle Mariners vs. Kansas City Royals
MLB Over-Under Pick: Under 9 runs -110 odds (August 5th 2017)

The Seattle Mariners defeated the Kansas City Royals 5-2 Friday night. I think we’ll see a similar amount of runs scored when the teams do battle again here the next day.

Felix Hernandez (5-4, 4.28 ERA) will take the ball for the Mariners. King Felix has not been at his very best this season, and he’s been tagged with four runs in each of his last two starts. Hernandez lost to the Royals on July 4 when he was charged with six runs (five earned) through six innings, but he owns a solid 3.05 ERA in 14 career starts against KC.

Under is 6-0 in Hernandez’s last six road starts vs. the Royals who turn to left-hander Danny Duffy. Duffy (7-6, 3.42 ERA) has held three of his last four opponents to just one run each. Under is 6-1 in Duffy’s last seven home starts, and he is 1-1 with a 2.25 ERA in seven career outings (five starts) vs. the Mariners.

New York Mets vs. Seattle Mariners MLB Odds & Pick from Jesse Schule: July 30th 2017

New York Mets vs. Seattle Mariners
MLB Pick: Seattle -226 odds (July 30th 2017)

The Mariners host the Mets in the final game of a three game series at Safeco Sunday, and Seattle looks good as big favorite here.

James Paxton will toe the slab for Seattle, and he’s having himself a stellar season. Paxton (10-3, 2.84 ERA) tossed seven scoreless innings, striking out 10 in a home win over Boston his last time out. He’s 6-2 with a 2.36 ERA in 10 home starts in 2017.

The Mets hand the ball to Seth Lugo, who has pitched well for the Mets. He’s 4-1 with a 4.68 ERA in five starts on the road this season. He allowed four runs on eight hits, including a pair of home runs while only striking out one batter in a 6-5 win over the Padres his last time out. Pitching in an American League park for the first time this season could prove to be a challenge for the 27 year old.

The Mets bullpen has been terrible all year, and their relievers rank 26th in the majors with a 4.73 ERA.
