Mariners vs A’s Betting Preview

starting pitchers

robbie ray (6-6, 4.25 ERA): It hasn’t been a Cy Young-type season for the left-hander, but Ray is coming off a dominant seven-inning, 10-strikeout start where he went no-hitter into the seventh inning. His speed is certainly lower than last season and he has been more good than great this season, but he will be facing a Track team that has scored the second-fewest runs in the American League.

The lefty has a 5.80 ERA on the road this year compared to a 2.84 ERA at home.

frankie you ride (3-7, 3.53 ERA): Even though the A’s went 3-11 SU in Montas’ starts this year, the right-hander has been a solid option for the AL’s worst team. However, Montas has been a little rough this month, as he has allowed 14 runs in his 17 innings in June.

Montas has been a much better pitcher at home this season with a 2.72 ERA at baseball’s mecca, RingCentral Coliseum. He also has one of the best chasing rates in baseball and hitters are hitting just .186 with the divider on him.

money line analysis

Seattle and Oakland may sit in the bottom of the AL West, but the A’s are a much worse team. They currently have a -108 run differential, which is the worst in the American League, only the Tigers have scored fewer runs and own the league’s worst record at home at a paltry 8-27.

The A’s have won just one of their last 11 games at RingCentral Coliseum and even when they get a decent pitch from today’s starter Frankie Montas, they’ve only won three of their 14 starts.

The series has been extremely unbalanced so far. Seattle won 8-2 in Game 1, while the A’s had just two at-bats with runners in scoring position, and the Mariners tagged Oakland’s bullpen with six runs over three innings.

The Mariners followed up with a 9-0 scoreless run yesterday, where the Mariners went 0-for-6 on RISP and starter Paul Blackburn was tagged with seven runs on 10 hits in four innings.

The books are moving the lines in favor of the A’s, but we think Ray and the Mariners can pull off the sweep today.

Both teams will run away after this game, as the A’s travel to Kansas City while the Mariners stay in state to start a series with the Halos on Friday.

Though the divisions favor Montas at home versus Ray on the road, the Seattle left-hander is coming off two straight dominant starts in which he pitched 14 innings, allowing one run and giving up just six hits. He also had his command under control, with a mark of 14/2 K / BB.

The matchup with the A’s is good for Ray as Oakland has one of the worst walk rates in baseball and over the last 30 days the A’s have the second worst offense in baseball in terms of runs created and slugging. .

With Oakland’s offense stuck at neutral, having scored two or fewer runs in six of their last eight games, Montas will have to be near perfect today to keep the A’s from being swept. He has been solid this year, but has allowed 24 hits for 14 runs (nine earned) in three starts in June. He allowed 10 hits in five innings in his last start against the low-hitting Royals.

Seattle’s offense hasn’t impressed this season, but it has improved over the last month, with a wRC+ ranking 12th in the league while Julio Rodriguez and Jesse Winker have been racking up the last seven games.

Given that both pitchers are likely to dig deeper, we’re not looking too much at the bullpens here, as both certainly have their issues and rank in the bottom quarter of the league in ERA. Seattle’s closing situation has been looking better of late, with Diego Castillo and Paul Sewald settling into co-closing roles.

Teams with sub-.500 records don’t typically sweep three-game sets and that’s likely why we’re seeing the market move toward the A’s here today. However, Oakland has been epically bad offensively this season and will face Ray, who could be turning the corner and will see a team that is hitting just .209 against lefties, which is the worst mark in baseball.

Prediction: Mariners money line (-125 at bet365)

Covers MLB betting analysis

Over/Under Analysis

With Ray vs. Montas, we’re getting a low total of 7. It’s hard to trust this Oakland offense to do anything against left-handed pitching, and especially against the reigning AL Cy Young winner.

Half the order for the Mariners is locked in, but this isn’t a deep lineup, and they rank 25th in the league in runs per game. If it weren’t for the Tigers, the A’s would be the worst offense in baseball. This is a battle of two of the lowest-scoring teams, and the pitching matchup isn’t favorable for either lineup.

Montas is 4-9 O/U on the season and has been better at home than away this season. He had a tough June, but five of his 14 allowed runs in his last three starts were unearned, and he’s still a pitcher who can miss bats.

His top two offerings in his fastball (29.2% scent) and splitter (30% scent) can sit hitters down. If your slider, a pitch that throws 16% of the time is working, he can dominate.

With both starters getting long straps and possibly pitching into the seventh inning (each pitcher’s total out market is pegged at 18.5), bullpens shouldn’t have too much of an impact in this game. Since every game in the series has been one-sided, both clubs also have all their arms ready to play.

With trips set for each club and today playing in the afternoon sun, we could also see some weaker line-ups today. Give us a U-7 today in a game that features two terrible offenses and two solid starting pitchers.

Prediction: Under 7 (-110 at bet365)

best bet

No team hits worse against left-handed pitchers than Oakland. Today’s home team is hitting .209 against LHP and his .646 OPS is the third-worst mark in baseball. This is arguably the worst offense in the league that produces even less when facing a southpaw.

Oakland has to travel to Kansas City tomorrow and hasn’t done anything in this series offensively. The A’s are 14-for-66 (.212) in the series with just two extra-base hits and an 0-for-8 RISP. Now this weak lineup faces Ray, who has been strong in his last two starts and has kept the ball in the park. . They could also be bringing up a weaker lineup with the matinee.

The books don’t expect much offense today and we think Oakland’s bats will do the bare minimum in today’s matchup. The A’s have scored three or more runs just twice in their last eight games and just once in their last eight home games.
