Bet On MLB Baseball – Struggling Mariners Host Improving Rangers
The Texas Rangers, (13-20, 17-13-3 O/U) have struggled since the beginning of the 2008 online betting regular season, but have won six of their last ten games, despite dropping two straight entering this matchup, including a 7-3 loss to the Seattle Mariners, (14-19, 13-17-2 O/U) on Monday.
Seattle, on the other hand, widely expected to compete for the AL West division title if not even more, have floundered all season and have won just three of their last ten games in the Our best Sportsbooks.
After snapping their five-game losing streak with Monday’s victory, the Mariners will turn to veteran right-hander Miguel Batista (2-3, 4.41 ERA), who is coming off a solid performance in his last start as he limited the Cleveland Indians to just one run on four hits in seven innings as Seattle lost 3-2 in 11 innings on Thursday night.
“Hopefully, we can get this thing started. Right now, our goal is to get to .500,” Mariners manager John McLaren said.
The Rangers will counter with veteran right-hander Sidney Ponson (1-0, 1.35 ERA) who picked up his first win of the year in his last outing by limiting the Kansas City Royals to one run on six hits and five strikeouts in eight innings.
Here is a look at tonight’s key trends, followed by my MLB Betting Picks.
The Rangers are 4-0 in their last 4 games vs. a right-handed starter.
The Rangers are 4-0 in their last 4 when their opponent scores 5 runs or more in their previous game.
The Mariners are 5-0 in Batista’s last 5 home starts vs. a team with a losing record.
The Mariners are 6-1 in Batista’s last 7 home starts with the total set at 9.0-10.5.
The Over is 10-1-1 in Rangers last 12 games following a loss.
The Under is 4-0 in Batista’s last 4 starts vs. a team with a losing record.
The Under is 7-2-1 in the last 10 meetings.
The Rangers are 3-13 in the last 16 meetings in Seattle.
The Rangers are 1-6 in the last 7 meetings.
Analysis: While enigmatic Rangers starter Sidney Ponson looked terrific in his last start, I like the Seattle Mariners to get to him and win this game by getting a solid outing of their own from Miguel Batista.
