Seattle Mariners vs Los Angeles Angels - Free Pick (David Hess)
The Seattle Mariners and the Los Angeles Angels will hookup this evening in an American League West matchup. the Mariners have had their issues in the early going, especially with their pitching staff and that is where will begin here. Seattle has allowed six runs or more in every game thus far and they have an 8.12 ERA through five games, which is the most ERA in the league. Last night, they allowed the Halos to hang up 10 runs and I can see at least seven from a very solid LA offense that added Anthony Rendon in the offseason. It was his first game played with his new team and he will give this team some extra pop. The mariners are not a great offensive team but they have averaged 3.6 rpg so far and putting up three or four runs in this one should be good for us. Andrew Heaney pitched well in his first outing but he does have a career 3.93 ERA in this park and that will allow the Mariners to get a few off of him. The Over is 4-0-1 in Mariners last 5 games with the total set at 9.0-10.5 and 10-2 in Angels last 12 games as a home favorite., plus 7-2 the last nine games between these teams overall.
