Preview

Oakland Athletics and Seattle Mariners will play game 1 of their 3 game series on Friday at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum. the Mariners are leading the record 7-3 in 10 games played between them in this season so far.

Oakland Athletics 

Oakland Athletics are coming off a 2-2 tie series Vs the Rangers after going on a 9 games losing streak. Oakland have been really bad pretty much the whole season and now they will be playing Seattle at home in a tough matchup for them, Oakland are 3-7 Vs Seattle Mariners this season and it won't be any easier for them tonight. Oakland are 29th in runs scored and 22nd in runs allowed this season.

Probable pitcher:

Cole Irvin (6-10, 3.13 ERA) will be on the mound for the A's in game 1 on Friday, Irvin's last start was against Houston Astros and he went 6 innings allowing 5 Earned runs and had 1 strikeouts in a game that ended as a 3-6 loss for the A's.

Seattle Mariners 

Seattle Mariners are coming off a great performance and a 3-0 straight up sweep Vs Los Angeles Angels averaging 25 runs scored and 11 runs allowed in 3 games Vs the Angels. Seattle's offense is on fire at the moment and having a lot of high scoring games lately as they are 5-0-2 to the Over in the last 7 games so the last Under game they had was 8 games ago. Mariners are the 17th in runs scored and 8th in runs allowed this season.

Probable pitcher:

Marco Gonzalez (7-12, 4.18 ERA) will be in the mound for the Mariners in game 1 on Friday, Gonzalez's last start was against Texas Rangers and he went 5 innings allowing 5 earned runs and had 2 strikeouts in a game that ended as a 4-7 loss for the Mariners.

Betting Trends

Oakland Athletics have gone Under the total in 4 of last 5 games played Vs the Mariners.

Oakland Athletics are 2-10 Straight up last 12 games.

Oakland Athletics are 0-5 straight up last 5 home games.

Seattle Mariners have gone Over the total in 5 of last 5 games.

Seattle Mariners are 6-2 Straight up last 8 games.

Seattle Mariners are 9-0 straight up last 9 games played Vs Oakland on the road.

Prediction

I like Seattle Mariners to win this game for many reasons, Seattle are in a much better form and the Athletics have been playing really bad at home, Oakland have lost their last 5 home games and they have twice number of losing games at home than winning games so I like the Mariners to keep their winning streak going tonight.

PICK: Seattle Mariners ML (-126).
