The Line: Seattle Mariners +112 / Los Angeles Angels -122 --- Over/Under: 8.5
The Los Angeles Angels and Seattle Mariners meet Friday in MLB action at Safeco Field.
The Los Angeles Angels look for a spark of consistency here after splitting their last 12 games. The Angels have scored 25 runs in their last three games and three or more runs in five of their last eight games. The Los Angeles Angels have won 12 of their last 13 games when scoring three or more runs. Andrelton Simmons leads the Angels with 34 hits and 19 RBI while Mike Trout and Albert Pujols have combined for 64 hits and 38 RBI. Garrett Richards gets the ball, and he is 3-1 with a 4.88 ERA and 37 strikeouts this season. Richards is 5-4 with a 3.15 ERA and 72 strikeouts in his career against the Mariners.
The Seattle Mariners look to stay hot after winning seven of their last nine games. The Mariners have scored 12 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 12 games. The Seattle Mariners have won 12 of their last 15 games when scoring more than three runs. Dee Gordon leads the Mariners with 44 hits and eight RBI while Jean Segura and Mitch Haniger have combined for 68 hits and 51 RBI. Mike Leake gets the ball, and he is 3-2 with a 6.48 ERA and 22 strikeouts this season. Leake is 2-0 with a 1.93 ERA and 10 strikeouts in his career against the Angels.
The Angels are 11-1 in their last 12 road games, 6-1 in their last 7 vs. American League West and 0-4 in their last 4 vs. a team with a winning record. The Mariners are 5-1 in their last 6 during game 1 of a series, 7-3 in their last 10 Friday games and 1-4 in their last 5 home games. The Angels are 5-2 in the last 7 meetings in Seattle, 7-3 in the last 10 meetings and the over is 3-1-1 in the last 5 meetings.
The Los Angeles Angels have been on fire on the road this season, are hitting the ball well and have the pitching advantage here, as Leake has been dwonright awful this season. However, we're getting plus money here with the Seattle Mariners at home, a team that's found its groove offensively as of late and give themselves a chance to win each night. Also, Richards just got blasted in his last start against the Yankees. The value is with the Seattle Mariners at home.
