MLB Sports Betting Odds:
The Seattle Mariners fly into this Wednesday night matchup with a 20-14 record to their name. That record ranks the franchise 3rd in the AL West. However, despite being third in the divisional rankings, the Mariners are but a game behind the division leading Houston Astros. With that in mind, it’s clear that Seattle can make a push for the lead in the division. Granted, the Mariners will need to mount a bit of a winning streak. And since the Mariners are 3-3 in their last 6, they’ll need to be able to find more consistency. In order to do so, the Mariners will be sending Wade LeBlanc to the mound this evening. LeBlanc is 0-0 on the year with a 3.57 ERA and a 1.30 WHIP.
Players to Watch: Robinson Cano (3 HR, 19 RBI, .290 BA), Mitch Haniger (10 HR, 28 RBI, .289 BA), and Jean Segura (2 HR, 24 RBI, .280 BA).
Toronto Blue Jays
The Blue Jays swarm into this AL Matchup flashing a 19-17 record that ranks them 3rd in the AL East. But unlike the Mariners, who are in contention for the lead in the division, the Blue Jays are pretty far behind. Specifically, the division-leading Boston Red Sox have built up a 6 ½ game lead over Toronto. To try and even the score, the Blue Jays will be starting Jaime Garcia this evening. Garcia is 2-2 on the year with a 6.00 ERA and a 1.57 WHIP. Considering that Toronto is 2-5 in their last 7, it’s unlikely that they’ll be turning things around this evening.
Players to Watch: Kevin Pillar (4 HR, 16 RBI, .309 BA), Yangervis Solarte (9 HR, 22 RBI, .264 BA), and Justin Smoak (4 HR, 18 RBI, .252 BA).
