MLB Sports Betting Odds:
New York Yankees
The Yankees step into this AL pairing sporting an 87-53 record that ranks them as the 2nd best team in the AL East. Right now the division is heralded by the Boston Red Sox, who have built up an astounding 9 ½ game lead over New York. Early on the Yanks were giving Boston hell at the top of the AL East. Since then, New York has suffered a few hiccups while the Red Sox have maintained their pace, leading to this current predicament. With a 1-3 record in their last 4 games, things are starting to look bad for New York.
And although they currently have an 8 ½ game lead in the Wild Card race, if things keep going the way they have been the Yankees will surely miss out on the postseason. Masahiro Tanaka is the man tasked with ensuring that doesn’t happen. Tanaka is 10-5 this year and wields a 3.83 ERA and a 1.13 WHIP.
Players to Watch: Miguel Andujar (23 HR, 76 RBI, .297 BA), Aaron Judge (26 HR, 61 RBI, .285 BA), and Giancarlo Stanton (33 HR, 84 RBI, .270 BA).
The Mariners swim into this Friday night contest flashing a 78-62 record that ranks them 3rd in the AL West. Currently 9-games behind the division leading Houston Astros, it’s looking like the Mariners will not be winning the AL West this season. However, the Mariners are only 5 ½ games behind the Oakland Athletics in the Wild Card race. With that in mind, it’s clear Seattle’s playoff chances are very much alive. James Paxton will get the start on behalf of Seattle this evening. Paxton is 11-5 on the year and boasts a 3.74 ERA and a 1.11 WHIP.
Players to Watch: Jean Segura (9 HR, 60 RBI, .314 BA), Mitch Haniger (24 HR, 85 RBI, .279 BA), and Nelson Cruz (34 HR, 85 RBI, .267 BA).
