Seattle vs. Oakland MLB Betting Line Pick from Alex Smart: September 25th 2017

Seattle Mariners vs. Oakland Athletics
MLB Betting Line Pick: A’s +105 odds (September 25th 2017)

The A’s , feature a roster packed with promising young talent, which is evident by a current 7 game win streak and a 14-3 run over their past 17 games. The As just  completed a three-game series sweep of the Texas Rangers with an 8-1 route on Sunday afternoon at the Coliseum . The hungry looking Athletics once again look like viable candidates to deliver the cash this Monday evening vs a downtrodden Mariners team that has lost 8 of their L/9 games. I know they go against a Seattle icon in Felix Hernandez, but the former all star and Cy Young award winner, has been dealing with arthritic issues in his shoulder all season long, and has been laboring of late recording a 7.30 ERA in his L/3 starts.

OAKLAND is 7-0 L/7  against the money line in home games after allowing one run or less in a win over a division rival this season winning by an average of 3.6 rpg. OAKLAND is 25-16 against the money line as a home underdog of +100 or higher this season.Mariners are 0-6 in their last 6 vs. American League West.Mariners are 1-5 in their last 6 games vs. a right-handed starter.Athletics are 8-0 in their last 8 home games.Athletics are 10-1 in their last 11 games vs. a right-handed starter.

MLB Pick: Larry Ness betting the Texas Rangers -102 odds on September 13th 2017

Seattle Mariners vs. Texas Rangers
MLB Betting Pick: Texas -102 odds (September 13th 2017)

The Mariners and Rangers meet Wednesday in the third of a four-game series at Arlington. Seattle won 10-3 last night, just its third in eight contests and remained 3 1/2 games behind Minnesota for the second wild card spot at .72-73. Meanwhile, 72-72 Texas looks to move back above .500, plus hopes to close the team’s three-game deficit for the American League’s second wild card spot.

The pitching matchup features Mike Leake (9-12, 4.10 ERA overall) for Seattle and Martin Perez (12-10, 4.81 ERA) for Texas. Leake will be making his third start since being acquired from St Louis and has won each of his first two outings as a Mariner. He’s allowed two earned runs in each start, while striking out 12 against one walk in 13 overall innings. Leake is 0-1 with a 2.33 ERA in three career starts versus the Rangers, including two outings at Globe Life Park (0-1, 2.03 ERA).

Martin Perez will head to the mound tonight looking to match a Texas franchise record by winning his EIGHTH consecutive start. Perez has not exactly resembled Clayton Kershaw during his seven-game winning streak but he has allowed fewer than three ERs in five of the seven victories and owns a 3.15 ERA these last seven games, lowering his overall ERA from 5.46 to its current 4.10. Perez is 1-1 with a 3.86 ERA in three starts against Seattle this year (Rangers are 1-2) and is 6-3 with a 3.30 ERA in 15 appearances (13 starts) all-time vs Seattle.

Leake has been everything Seattle could have hoped for (and more) in his first two starts with the Mariners but going against the red-hot Perez makes little sense right now. Take the home team.
