The Seattle Mariners and the Detroit Tigers meet in MLB action from Comerica Park on Sunday afternoon. Let’s dive into the odds, starting pitching matchup, history and make a prediction for this game.


The Mariners are listed as -175 road favorites while Detroit is a +150 home underdog. The total for this game is set at 8.5 runs.

Starting Pitching Matchup

Logan Gilbert will start for Seattle and is 1-2 with a 3.79 ERA and 50 strikeouts this season. Detroit will start Joey Wentz here and he is 1-3 with a 6.09 ERA and 27 strikeouts this season.

Matchup History

Seattle’s 5-0 win over the Tigers on Saturday made it five straight wins for the Mariners in this head-to-head matchup.


Seattle is 9-3 in their last 12 games overall and 4-1 in their last 5 games against the AL Central while the under is 4-0 in their last 4 games following a win. Detroit is 7-3 in their last 10 games overall and 27-59 in their last 86 Sunday games while the under is 3-1-1 in their last 5 games overall.


I’m sticking with the under here. I don’t trust either offense in this pitching matchup as the Tigers have struggled against righties for some time now and this could be a dominant spot for Seattle’s Logan Gilbert. On the other side, Seattle hasn’t been hitting lefties well in the last couple of weeks, and while I haven’t been a Joey Wentz fan, he’s pitched well in spots and could do well in this matchup. I think this could be a first to 3 wins kind of game, so give me the under here.
