Online Baseball Betting Odds:
After dropping the last 3 in a row, Texas has fallen to 25-26 this season. That lackluster record ranks them 3rd overall in the AL West and places tem a whopping 9-games behind the division leading Houston Astros. Accounting for last night’s 6-2 lopsided loss to Seattle, it comes as no surprise to see Texas pegged as the online baseball betting underdog once again.
However, Seattle isn’t having the best of seasons and are statistically on par with Texas. In fact, both teams have 285 runs on the seasons and Seattle’s 5.12 team ERA is slightly worse than the 5.09 ERA that Texas’ sports as a team. With this in mind, it’s clear that Texas can get the upset tonight. Nonetheless, with Adrian Sampson getting the start, things aren’t necessarily looking up for Texas. This is because Sampson is 2-3 this season and sports a 3.41 ERA and a 1.33 WHIP.
Players to Watch: Shin-Soo Choo (9 HR, 22 RBI, .288 BA), Nomar Mazara (6 HR, 25 RBI, .253 BA), and Elvis Andrus (6 HR, 26 RBI, .320 BA).
The Mariners enter this evening’s matchup flashing a 24-32 record that ranks them dead last in the AL West. As aforementioned, the Astros currently lead the AL West. Additionally, they have an astounding 12 ½ game lead over Seattle. Last night’s win over the Rangers helped Seattle snap a lengthy 6-game losing streak. While that may be impressive, it’s important to note that 3 of those losses came against Texas. Granted Seattle was playing them on the road, but it still shows this contest can go either way. Marco Gonzales is the man tasked with getting the win at home this evening. He enters the matchup with a 5-4 record as well as a 3.41 ERA and a 1.33 WHIP.
Players to Watch: Mitch Haniger (13 HR, 28 RBI, .229 BA), Domingo Santana (10 HR, 42 RBI, .278 BA), and Edwin Encarnacion (10 HR, 42 RBI, .278 BA).
