MLB Game Day: Mariners @ Angels – Pitching Preview

If all the cards fell right for the Mariners this weekend, they could be tied for first in the AL West heading into the All-Star break. While that’s the good news, the bad news is they open this four game set against RHP Jered Weaver (10-4 – 1.92 ERA) who has allowed just eight runs in his last six starts.

Seattle will send RHP Doug Fister (3-9 3.02 ERA) to the mound against Weaver. Despite his losing record, Fister has been fairly good at punching out batters lately. In his last three starts, the big right-hander has given up one run per game, in 25 innings of work, albeit against the likes of the Padres and Marlins.

As much as we loved the Braves over the Rockies last night – getting greedy cost us. Our daily free pick was a winner (+105 units), as Atlanta more than covered the -1.5 point spread, but we lost the UNDER portion of our “bonus” parlay bet. In the end, we netted a meager five-unit profit. Greed Kills!

Seattle ranks dead last, in virtually every offensive category, in all of baseball. That’s not a good thing when you are facing the American League ERA leader. The Mariners will need a gem out of Fister, along with a mini-meltdown by Weaver, if they hope stay close in this contest.

Anaheim is starting to roll as they have gone 12-4 over their last 16 games – scoring at least four runs in eight of those match-ups. The competition hasn’t been very tough over that span, other than the Tigers, but four runs should be enough to make a winner out of Weaver and the Angels tonight.

Align with the Angels over the Mariners at -1.5 (+120) with the Bodog Point Spread!
