Seattle Mariners Team Facts

  • The Mariners have lost each of their last three games as favorites after playing the previous day.
  • The Mariners have failed to cover the run line in each of their last seven games as favorites after playing the previous day.
  • The Mariners have trailed after 3 innings in each of their last four day games against National League opponents.
  • The Mariners have trailed after 7 innings in three of their last four games as favorites.
  • The Mariners have lost the first inning in four of their last six games as favorites against National League opponents.

Chicago Cubs Team Facts

  • The Cubs have won seven of their last eight day games against AL West opponents that held a losing record.
  • The Cubs have covered the run line in each of their last nine day games against AL West opponents following a road win.
  • The Cubs have led after 3 innings in each of their last four day games against American League opponents.
  • The Cubs have led after 5 innings in each of their last five day games against American League opponents that held a losing record.
  • The ‘Inning 1 UNDER 0.5 runs’ market has hit in each of the Cubs’ last five games.

Cubs vs Mariners prediction

The Mariners are getting the benefit of the doubt because they’re at home, I guess, but this line doesn’t make sense. Javier Assad has been great in his first 3 seasons, and he’s allowed just 2 runs in his first 11 innings this season. Luis Castillo has been rough through 15.2 innings, where he’s allowed 25 hits and 12 runs. Castillo has allowed 4 runs in each of his first 3 starts. It’s hard to get behind the Mariners in this spot. I’ll gladly take the road dog in the Cubs.
