The Seattle Mariners are 25-24 this season and they have won four of their last five games. Seattle has won the first three games in this series by scores of 11-2, 3-2, and 6-1. The Seattle pitching staff has a 3.48 ERA, a 1.16 WHIP, and a .234 opponent batting average.

Oakland is 5-16 in their last 21 Thursday games and 0-4 in their last 4 game four’s of a series. The over is 5-0 in Oakland’s last 5 game four’s of a series. Seattle is 10-3 in their last 13 Thursday games and 21-7 in their last 28 game four’s of a series. The under is 4-0 in Seattle’s last 4 Thursday games. Oakland is 1-7 in these two teams last 8 head to head meetings in Seattle.


Oakland comes into this game on a losing streak and they continue to be the worst team in baseball. Seattle is currently sitting in fourth place in the AL West, but they are going for the four game sweep in this matchup. Seattle is starting Logan Gilbert, who has allowed three earned runs or fewer in four straight starts. Oakland is starting JP Sears, who has allowed two earned runs or fewer in three of his last four starts. I think we are going to see a lower scoring game here, so I am taking the under.
