The Seattle Mariners have scored eight runs in their last three games and three or less runs in four of their last eight games.

The Mariners are 10-4 in their last 14 Saturday games and 3-8 in their last 11 road games. The Angels are 2-5 in their last 7 Saturday games and 3-8 in their last 11 games as a favorite. The under is 6-2 in Mariners last 8 overall. The under is 6-1 in Angels last 7 overall. The Mariners are 5-2 in the last 7 meetings in Los Angeles.
The Mariners have been struggling this week and the inconsistent offense is becoming an issue. The Angels have issues of their own, but they’ve shown signs of turning things around. Cobb has also been rather impressive at times this season. I’ll back the Angels and the cheap price.
