The Seattle Mariners will host the Oakland Athletics for game two of their divisional series this Tuesday from T-Mobile Park on the MLB Network. Seattle opened things abruptly with a nine-run win, 11-2. 

Athletics Betting Preview 

Oakland dropped to 10-39 after losing to Seattle. The Athletics have now  dropped six straight, and they’ll look to show some resistance in game two. The Oakland offense is scoring 2.81 runs per game, while batting .232, with a .313 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 7.29 ERA, with a 1.74 WHIP. Brent Rooker produced one of the two runs scored Monday night, and he leads the team in HR (11), and RBI (32). Esteury Ruiz is enjoying a seven-game hit streak, and he’s not leading Oakland in batting (.285). 

Luis Medina (0-2, 6.88 ERA, 15 Ks) will open for Oakland. The rookie pitcher appears to be coming along, as his third appearance last week against Arizona marked his best. Medina pitched his second straight quality start, striking out six over six innings, while allowing three runs to the DBacks. Medina did struggle in his lone road start in Anaheim, but in his defence, it was his major league debut.

Mariners Betting Preview 

Seattle enters at 23-24 after defeating Oakland. The Mariners opened the series explosively by tieing a season-high in runs, and they’ll look to replicate that Tuesday. The Seattle offense is scoring 3.67 runs per game, while batting .227, with a .308 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 3.55 ERA, with a 1.19 WHIP. Jarred Kelenic has a hit in eight of the last ten games, and he leads the team in batting (.297) and homers (10). Eugenio Suarez has produced three runs in two of the last three games, and he’s now up to a team-lead 28 RBI. 

Marco Gonzales (3-1, 6.10 ERA, 26 Ks) will get the home start for Seattle. The ninth-year pitcher is coming off of one of the worse outings of his career at Fenway, giving up eight runs and failing to make through the second inning. Gonzales took his first loss in style, but if there’s ever a spot to bounce back in, it’s against the worst team in the league in your home building. Gonzales should be able to respond strong here against Oakland, as his last two starts in Seattle have resulted in quality starts. 

Seattle vs Oakland Trends

Oakland is 24-22 against the spread this season, with a 22-23-1  O/U record. Seattle is 18-30 ATS this year, with a 28-19-3 over/under record.

Corey’s Free Pick

Seattle came out strong last night, and they have a good chance of doubling down here against the worst team in the majors. This home spot gives Marco Gonzales a golden chance to bounce back, and I think he capitalizes. I like not overthinking Seattle in a manageable spot, so back them for game two of this AL West series.

Corey’s Pick Mariners -1.5
