Houston Astros vs. Seattle Mariners MLB Pick from Scott Rickenbach: June 24th 2017

Houston Astros vs. Seattle Mariners
MLB Pick: Mariners +155 odds (June 24th 2017)

Scott “The Bulldog” Rickenbach Free Pick Saturday MLB Seattle Mariners Money Line (+) vs Houston Astros @ 10:10 ET – The Astros are over-priced here. Lance McCullers has great numbers on the season but he has been on the disabled list with back problems. That could flare up again here and he is facing a Seattle team that has won 6 straight games and averaged 8 runs per game! As for the Astros, they will be facing Sam Gaviglio and the Mariners are a solid 6-1 in his starts this season. The right-hander has a 1.71 ERA and minuscule 1.14 WHIP in his home outings and the M’s are a perfect 4-0 in those starts! The Astros lineup has never faced Gaviglio while the Seattle lineup will be facing McCullers for the 4th time in the past 12 months!

While it is true that McCullers has had success in those 3 prior outings versus the Mariners, it is also true that Seattle’s lineup is on fire right now and that McCuller’s back is a concern here! The Mariners are 25-13 at home this season. The Astros are only 10-10 the past 3 seasons combined when they are off of a game where they allowed 10 runs or more. The Mariners also are a fantastic 12-3 the past 3 seasons combined in home games with a posted total of 9 or 9.5 runs. Free Pick on SEATTLE MARINERS on the money line late Saturday night. Best of luck, Scott “The Bulldog” Rickenbach

Toronto vs. Seattle MLB Odds & Prediction from Will Rogers: June 9th 2017

Toronto Blue Jays vs. Seattle Mariners
MLB Prediction: Toronto -127 odds (June 9th 2017)

The set-up: Seattle lost 2-1 to Minnesota on Thursday, ending a five-game winning streak. It’s also just the team’s second loss in its last 11 and speaking of 11, the Mariners will conclude an 11-game homestand with this weekend’s three-game series with the Toronto Blue Jays. The Mariners had just seven hits last night and went 0-for-7 with runners in scoring position, scoring only a single run after compiling 46 runs during their five-game winning streak (9.2 per). The Blue Jays come to Seattle in last place in the AL East, despite having won 11 of their last 16 games.

The pitching matchup: Joe Biagini (1-4 & 3.31 ERA) gets the ball for Toronto and  Sam Gaviglio (2-1 & 3.13 ERA) for Seattle. Biagini is 0-3 over his last four outings (Jays are 1-3) and has pitched in tough luck his last two outings, allowing three ERs in 13 innings (2.08 ERA) but getting one run of support, He owns a solid 1.02 WHIP and is limiting opposing batters to a .216 average over 49 innings on the season. Biagini tossed five innings of four-hit shutout ball in a 4-0 win over the Mariners back on May 12 and is unscored upon in 8 2/3 career innings over four appearances against the Mariners. Gaviglio has won his last two starts and has given up one or fewer ERs in three of his four big-league outings, to-date. Gaviglio’s major-league debut came at Toronto on May 11, when he gave up one run and two hits and struck out four against Toronto in a two-inning relief appearance.

The pick: Seattle is red-hot but note that the Mariners scored just six runs while being swept in a four-game set in Toronto from May 11-14 and Biagini has pitched WAY better than his record. I’m taking the visiting team in this one.
