Seattle Mariners Recap

The Seattle Mariners come into this game looking to build on their sweep of the two-game set against the San Diego Padres in their last matchup by a final score of 2-0 on Wednesday.

Mitch Haniger also has 8 home runs and 34 RBIs while Rodriguez has a team-high 18 stolen bases and 105 strikeouts as well this season.

Why the Seattle Mariners will win

  • The Angels have lost eight of their last nine games against American League opponents that held a winning record.
  • The Angels have failed to cover the run line in seven of their last eight home games against the Mariners following a win.
  • The road team has covered the run line in 10 of the Mariners' last 12 games.

Los Angeles Angels Recap

The Los Angeles Angels come into this game looking to pick up some momentum after salvaging a win from their series with the Texas Rangers after a 7-2 win in Wednesday’s series finale. The win didn’t stop the Angels from another series loss after falling flat against the Cubs and A’s over the last week and a half.

Angels Looking For Answers Going Into Second Half

Taylor Ward has 79 hits along with 16 doubles, 14 home runs and a team-high 44 RBIs.

  • The home team has won each of the last five games between the Mariners and Angels.
  • The Mariners have failed to cover the run line in each of their last six night games against American League opponents.
  • The Angels have covered the run line in six of their last seven home games against AL West opponents.

Seattle Mariners vs LA Angels Prediction

I’m leaning towards the Mariners here. I don’t love this price with Seattle and I’m not overly sold on the Mariners winning the AL West by season’s end, but this is a spot they need to take advantage of if they’re going to make that playoff push. Kochanowicz is getting fast tracked here with injuries in the Angels’ rotation, and he wasn’t very good in AA this season with a 4.55 ERA in 91 innings. I think Seattle does enough here to get the win but it’s not one I’m rushing to bet.
