This is a series between the top teams in the American League East and West so it is a nice way to start the week and gauge yourself against the competition.
Seattle has been sneaky good of late but they will be travelling across the country to take on a thunderous Baltimore attack. The key will be whether their pitching can keep the ball in the yard.
Seattle wanted to juice up their lineup this offseason but they might have really gotten what they wanted with Robinson Cano returning to form and then some.
With Cano leading the way they Mariners are in the top ten in scoring and pitching and you have to like their chances of being a factor in the AL West the rest of the season. I don’t see the Rangers punching their way away from them.
Wade Miley is a competent fifth starter. He has the only complete game on the staff this season and has a better k/bb ratio than Felix Hernandez.
In his last outing he gave up three homers to the Rays in Seattle so I am a little bit nervous of how he will do against Baltimore on the road. The Mariners bullpen has been OK. Closer Steve Cishek has more decision than you would want from that role so early in the season.
Baltimore is the top home run hitting club in the Majors and when they are going yard they can compete. The cool thing is that Chris Davis has potential to get really going which will make the lineup that much more dangerous.
Thus far he has been just OK while Manny Machado and Mark Trumbo have led the way. The pitching might not have a standout but is has been much better than expected on the whole.
Ubaldo Jimenez is not having a good season. He is walking too many guys but he used to be able to get away with it thanks to a low hit rate, that is not the case this season.
He will dazzle from time to time but less than half his starts are of the quality variety. What is quality is the work the relief corps is doing. They have lots of arms that the manager trusts.

Free Seattle Mariners vs. Baltimore Orioles MLB Prediction:
I am not a big fan of Miley and think he might get lit up by a Baltimore lineup that features a ton of right handed power. If that is the case the game could go over even if Jimenez pitches a rare gem.
Assuming that is not going to happen the safest best is probably to go with an over. It might be a little high but I would not be surprised if this game reaches double digits before the seventh inning stretch.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Orioles and Over
I like the combo even though you lose some at bats if the home team wins. There is very little chance of this being a low scoring game.
