Why Bet the Rangers?

Adrian Beltre and Prince Fielder have anchored the Texas Rangers offense to start the 2016 season. Beltre has a .286 batting average, and a home run, while Prince Fielder has a bomb and 7 runs batted in early in the season.

The 28 year old has a 22-11 career record in Major League Baseball. Texas approved of his first outing, which lasted 6 innings.

Why Bet the Mariners?

The Seattle Mariners would like to have their series with the Oakland Athletics back. In that three game sweep, the Mariners were outscored 11-4. The Mariners have enjoyed the resurgence of second basemen Robinson Cano, who has blasted 4 home runs to start the season. Seattle will send Taijuan Walker to the mound in this one. Walker is 23 years old, and holds a 14-11 career record, and 4.13 earned run average. Seattle saw him go 6 innings, and allow 7 hits and 2 runs in his first start.

Expert Betting Pick & Final Score Prediction

A.J. Griffin was pretty good in his first start this season, and is seeking his second of the season. Tijuan Walker went 6 innings for the Mariners, and struck out 4. Both pitchers are looking to improve on their opening start in this one. The Seattle Mariners and Texas Rangers are both teams that can really hit, when things get going. The home team will get final bat in this game, and that will prove to be the difference. The bet here is the Seattle Mariners -122 over the Texas Rangers. The final score prediction for this game is the Seattle Mariners 8-7 over the Texas Rangers on Wednesday.
