Mariners vs. Athletics MLB Odds & Pick from Brandon Lee: April 23rd 2017

Seattle Mariners vs. Oakland Athletics
MLB Betting Pick: A’s -123 odds (April 23rd 2017)

The price is right with the A’s at home today. This is a big play on Oakland starter Andrew Triggs, who is 3-0 and yet to allow a run in 3 starts. This could be the next gem in the rough the A’s organization has found. I’m willing to ride it out for a while, especially if he’s laying less than -130 at home against a team that is sending out a starter like Yovani Gallardo, who has a 6.19 ERA in 3 starts, all losses for Seattle. I have yet to mention that the A’s are red-hot having won 5 straight. Give me Oakland -123!

Mariners vs. Athletics MLB Betting Odds & Pick from Larry Ness: April 20th 2017

Seattle Mariners vs. Oakland Athletics
MLB Betting Pick: Seattle -140 odds (April 20th 2017)

The Mariners are 7-9 as they head to Oakland to open a four-game series with the 7-8 A’s Thursday night. Both teams produced a season-high in runs in wins on Wednesday, Seattle taking down the Marlins 10-5, while the A’s beat the Rangers 9-1. Oakland’s Khris Davis, who hit a career-high 42 HRs in 2016, hit his 7th HR of 2017, tying him for the MLB lead.

The pitching matchup will feature Seattle’s James Paxton, off to a 2-0 with an 0.00 ERA up against Cesar Valdez, who Valdez is appearing in a big-league game for the first time since June 10, 2010 when he was a member of the Arizona Diamondbacks. Valdez was hardly much of a pitcher back in 2010, going 1-2 with a 7.65 ERA and 1.95 WHIP in nine appearances (two starts). He was signed by Oakland as a minor-league free agent last November and has gone 1-0 with a 2.70 ERA at Triple-A Nashville. He’s been called up to start for the injured Kendall Graveman.

Getting back to Paxton, he’s been long been considered as a future standout by the Mariners but injuries have curtailed his progress. In fact, last season’s 121 innings are his most since he reached the majors in 2013. He was just 6-7 with a 3.79 ERA in 20 starts last season (Mariners were 7-13 in his starts, going minus-$898 against the moneyline) but he had nearly five times as many strikeouts (117) as walks (24).

Is 2017 going to be his breakout year? He’s opened 2-0 without allowing a run over 15 innings with a 17 strikeouts and just three walks. What’s more, he is 2-0 with a 2.75 ERA in three career starts against the Athletics (Seattle is 3-0), and how does one ignore that Seattle has won 12 of its past 13 games in Oakland. Take the Mariners.

MLB Pick: Will Rogers betting the Mariners -151 odds over the Marlins on April 19th 2017

Miami Marlins vs. Seattle Mariners
MLB Betting Pick: Seattle -151 odds (April 19th 2017)

The set-up: The 8-6 Miami Marlins and the 6-9 Seattle Mariners play the rubber game of this three-game IL series with this afternoon game at Safeco. Seattle won 6-1 on Monday but Miami’s Wei-Yin Chen, Brad Ziegler and Kyle Barraclough combined on a one-hit shutout in Tuesday’s 5-0 Marlins victory.

The pitching matchup: Edinson Volquez (0-1 & 3.45 ERA) and Felix Hernandez (1-1 & 2.95 ERA) will square off. Volquez is winless in his three 2017 starts (team is 1-2) and he has only pitched more than five innings in one of the outings. However, he never has lost to the Mariners, compiling a 5-0 record and 2.66 ERA in eight career appearances (seven starts / teams are 5-2). Hernandez is off his best outing of the season, beating Texas 2-1 last Friday, allowing one run on six hits in 7 1/3 innings. He’s made just two career starts vs. Miami but is 2-0 with a 2.35 ERA and 0.72 WHIP.

The pick: The Mariners were shut out last night (held to just one hit) but they had won four in a row prior to that. Seattle leaves after the game for a 10-game road trip, not returning home until May. I’ll take “King Felix” over Volquez, any day.

Miami Marlins vs. Seattle Mariners MLB Betting Odds & Pick: April 17th 2017

Miami Marlins vs. Seattle Mariners
MLB Betting Pick: Seattle -138 odds (April 17th 2017)

The Miami Marlins ended their four-game series with division rival the New York Mets, by winning three consecutive contests, after a 9-8 Thursday loss in 16 innings. Sunday’s 4-2 victory was capped by a walk-off HR by rookie J.T. Riddle, his first career home run. The Mariners can relate to Miami’s recent surge, having won three straight of their own, after scoring in the bottom of the ninth inning Sunday afternoon to outlast Texas 8-7. The Marlins head to Seattle for this three-game IL series with the Mariners at 7-5, while the Mariners are now 5-8, after a 2-8 start to the 2017 season.

Tom Koehler (0-0, 3.27 ERA) will take the mound for Miami on Monday night, opposed by Seattle lefty, Ariel Miranda (0-1, 5.06 ERA). Koehler had a quality start in a no-decision against the Atlanta Braves on Wednesday but also served up two HRs and struck out just one batter. He has never faced the Mariners but is 6-7 with a 4.50 ERA in 18 career interleague starts. Both of Miranda’s two starts this year have come against Houston. He first limited the Astros to two runs in five innings on the road but back in Seattle was reached for four runs on seven hits and two walks with five strikeouts in 5 2/3 innings. He has never met the Marlins and is 5-3 in his career while pitching in Seattle.

The Marlins swept three straight in their previous meeting with the Mariners in 2014 but they have not visited Safeco Field since 2011. Koehler has spent his entire major league career with Miami and owns a 16-25 record with a 4.49 ERA in his career away from home. Miranda is more of an unknown but off three straight home wins, I’ll back Seattle tonight up against the Marlins, who travel cross-country off a satisfying three straight wins over the Mets.
