Mariners Tighten Grip On Wild Card After Seventh Straight Win
The Mariners still trail the Houston Astros by 10 games in the American League West standings, but their recent 39-17 run since July 1st has most in baseball knowing that they are just as formidable of an opponent when the postseason starts next month. Let’s continue our White Sox vs Mariners series odds preview.
The Mariners lead the wild card standings by two games, but now face a stretch where they’ll play their next eight games against teams over .500. With a team ERA of 3.43(6th), MLB stats continue to show that pitching carries Scott Servais’ team on most night.
Only two other teams (Baltimore Orioles, and New York Mets) have been more profitable than the Mariners, winning 1078 units on a $100 wager. The Mariners, who are a -115 dog at home, will send lefty Marco Gonzalez (10-12, 3.99) to the hill.
Gonzalez was allowed to leave before his teammates finished up their road trip, after a 4 ½ hour of rain delay, Sunday, to ensure that he would be fresh for tonight’s opener. They’ll count on him to go deep into tonight’s game after using nine relievers in yesterday’s win.
White Sox Treading Water, Remain In AL Central Race
Mariners standings 2022 show that Seattle looks to be locked in on a postseason spot, with Chicago struggling for most of the year to climb over .500. MLB statistics show that the White Sox own the top offense in the league (.261 avg) but can’t seem to consistently find the big hits to drive runners in.
They rank 19th in both runs scored (4.25) and ERA (3.98) which is a direct reflection of why they’re on the outside of the playoffs. If a bettor is looking at the series odds, one must understand that you’re getting one of the most inconsistent teams in Major League Baseball.
However, they’re good enough to trot out Lance Lynn (4-5, 4.70 era) on the road and be listed as a favorite against the smokin’ hot Mariners.
Sox manager Tony La Russa will not be in the Chicago dugout due to undisclosed health issues. The Chi-Sox have lost bettors 998 units this season based on a $100 wager in 2022.
Bettors Have Tickets On Seattle, Under
Early betting patterns indicate that the public is on the Seattle as a dog (-102). It’s a bit of a surprise that the Mariners are a home dog to Lynn whose MLB Statistics show as being an average bet through 15 starts.
Chicago is just 8-7 when the former Mississippi Rebel gets the ball. With a major gap between the White Sox and the Mariners in the standings, veteran bettors should look at tonight’s number and quickly recognize a bookmakers trap.
Over 70% of early tickets are coming in on Seattle, but we’re not falling for the money line eye candy. To conclude our White Sox vs Mariners series odds preview, our official recommendation is to take the Sox tonight and in the series.Follow us on Twitter
