Preview

The Texas Rangers and the Seattle Mariners will meet again to play a 3-game series at the T-Mobile Park. The Rangers lost their last series against the Athletics and the Mariners were swept by the Astros but are 8-2 against the Rangers this season.

Chris Flexen (6-8, 3.79 ERA) will be on the mound for the Mariners in the 1st game of the series. In 3.2 innings of work in a 6-2 victory over the Rangers on Sunday, Flexen allowed one earned run on four hits, one walk, and three strikeouts. He did not factor in the decision. He has a record of 4-0 with an ERA of 2.52 and 25 strikeouts in 6 appearances versus the Rangers in his career.

Texas Rangers

The Rangers get here with a 43-51 record and have lost 4 of their last 6 games. The team is averaging 4.58 runs per game and they're batting for .240 AVG, have 430 runs scored in 772 hits and 121 home runs, ranking #9 in offense in the league behind the Toronto Blue Jays. Adolis Garcia leads with 58 RBI and 17 home runs while Corey Seager has 23 homers and 53 RBI.

Defensively as they are allowing 4.47 runs per game and rank #21 in the league. Martin Perez leads the pitching staff with a 2.59 ERA, 101 strikeouts and 8 wins recorded for the Rangers.

Glenn Otto (4-6, 5.40 ERA) will be on the mound for the Rangers in the 1st game of the series. On six innings, Otto gave up three earned runs on five hits, a walk, and four strikeouts while taking the loss in Sunday's 6-2 loss to the Mariners. He has a 1-1 record with an ERA of 4.09 and 8 strikeouts in 2 appearances versus the Mariners in his career.

BETTING TRENDS

Texas Rangers are 3-8 SU in their last 11 games on the road.

Texas Rangers are 3-17 SU in their last 20 games when playing on the road against Seattle.

Seattle Mariners are 9-4 SU in their last 13 games at home.

The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Seattle's last 6 games against an opponent in the American League.

Prediction

The Mariners were on a hot streak before steping in front of the Astros who swept them in the weekend series but the Mariners have dominated the Rangers this season beating them in 8 of 10 head to head games. For this game they'll send Chris Flexen to the mound who has been great lately allowing only two runs in his last 16.1 innings pitched and has dominated the Rangers in his career. The Rangers offense hasn't been bad but they have struggled defensively. They'll send Glenn Otto to the mound who has has struggled this season and the Rangers have lost in his last 5 starts including the last one against the Mariners. I'll side with the Mariners to bounce back and get the win on this one. 

PICK: Mariners ML (-145)
