Seattle is 13-3 following a loss, 5-18 in their last 23 games as a favorite, and 1-4 in Iwakuma’s last five home starts. Los Angeles is 6-2 in their last eight games, 1-4 as an underdog, and 4-1 in Wilson’s last five starts. Los Angeles is 6-2 in the last eight meetings of these two.
Both of these pitchers have been hot hard plenty and I expect them to get hit hard again here so my free pick is the over. My stronger play is on the winning side and I will post that in the Premium Area as well as on the App.
