The under is 5-3 in these two teams last 8 head to head meetings.
Oakland has played Seattle very tough in the first two games of this series, which is a great sign for a team that has been horrible this year. Seattle has struggled to hit the ball, but they are going up against an Oakland team that has a team ERA above 7.00. Seattle has the pitching advantage with Kirby on the mound and I like them to win this game going away. Take the Mariners -1.5 here.
