The Mariners and Reds will close out their interleague series on Sunday at the Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati. Backed by quality pitching and a bunch of home runs, the Mariners come in with a quality team.
The Reds, on the other hand, are a dumpster fire and are already looking forward to the offseason.
Led by Robinson Cano and the rest of the mad bombers in Seattle, the Mariners continue to lead the AL West.
I’m not sure many people pegged the M’s as a team to compete for the divisional crown this year, but that’s exactly where they find themselves.
Surprisingly enough, Seattle is dominating with its pitching staff, led by King Felix Hernandez and his trio of Merry Men.
Wade Miley has been one of those Merry Men this year, and he’ll get the start for Seattle in this one.
The veteran Miley comes in with a 4-2 record and a 4.32 ERA. Despite the high ERA, Miley’s WHIP of 1.20 is very impressive, as is his K/BB ratio of 3/1.
Miley has pitched better over his last few road starts, but he still comes in with a 4.34 ERA and a 1.38 WHIP away from Safeco Field.
He should get plenty of run support too, as the Mariners are currently 10th in slugging, 12th in OBP and 3rd in home runs.
Somehow, someway, Alfredo Simon continues to have a job in the big leagues.
Simon is arguably the worst starting pitcher in the majors, and if you need more evidence, look no further than 10.34 ERA and 2.11 WHIP.
Simon was also roughed up for 10 earned runs off 14 hits in just 4.1 innings during his last start, and it’s amazing the guy was allowed to stay in that long.
Whatever confidence he had left went right out the window after that massacre against Cleveland.
The Reds have the worst staff in the majors, and it’s apparent to see on the stat sheet.
Cincinnati ranks dead-last in runs allowed, ERA, WHIP, and home runs allowed. That’s a lot of categories to be the worst in, but the Reds have crafted bad pitching into an art form.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:

- Mariners are 6-4 in their last 10 games.
- Mariners are 17-11 vs. RHP.
- Reds are 7-25 as underdogs.
- Reds O/U vs. AL is 5-0.
Free Seattle Mariners vs. Cincinnati Reds MLB Prediction:
With Alfredo Simon, it’s impossible not to bet the over. He is a “gas can” in the purest form, and the Mariners have the type of offense that could eclipse the total by themselves.
On the other side, Cincinnati has fared better against left-handed pitchers, so I think they could score a few runs off Miley. Seattle should win with ease, and plenty of runs will be scored.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: OVER 9
When Simon is on the mound, not taking the over is a crime. He’s the worst starting pitcher in the big leagues, and the Mariners have a dangerous lineup that can hang six or seven runs on even the best pitching staffs.
The Reds have the worst pitching staff. Take the over.
