Why Bet the Seattle Mariners

The best reason to bet on the Mariners in this contest is that they’ve gone 4-2 in a half-dozen road dates so far. The bad news is tat they’re sending struggling starter Wade Miley to the mound after watching the southpaw go 0-1 with an 8.25 ERA in two starts covering 12.0 total innings against Texas to start the season. Miley was rocked for three-run homers in each game while allowing at least five earned runs in each outing. The lefty has faced Cleveland just once in his career, recording a four-inning no-decision in 2014 with Arizona. Still, Seattle has gone 4-1 in their last five road games.

Why Bet the Cleveland Indians

The best reason to bet on the Indians in this contest is that they’ve got a really good starter on the mound in Carlos Carrasco. The right-hander limited Tampa Bay to one run on four hits while striking out eight in 8.0 innings of a 4-1 win in his last outing on Wednesday night. The Indians are 4-1 in their last five games against teams from the American League West and 10-4 in their last 14 home games against a team with a losing record.

Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction

With the Mariners going 2-5 in their last 7 road games against a right-handed starter and the Indians going 5-2 in Carlos Carrasco’s last seven starts with five days of rest, I think it’s pretty evident that the Cleveland Indians are the easy pick in this matchup. Dating back to last season, Seattle’s Wade Miley has allowed at least four earned runs in each of his last four starts. Cleveland wins by two runs at the least. My final score prediction: Cleveland 4 Seattle 2
