Lawrence was sent down Sunday after he gave up six runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out six in 5.2 relief innings against the Rays on Saturday. 

BETTING TRENDS

Toronto Blue Jays are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games on the road.

The total has gone OVER in 5 of Toronto's last 7 games when playing on the road against Seattle.

The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Seattle's last 7 games against Toronto.

Seattle Mariners are 5-1 SU in their last 6 games at home.

Prediction

The Blue Jays finally ended their losing streak when they beat the A's 2-1 but continue to struggling offensively as they are averaging only 2.3 runs per game in the last 6. Casey Lawrence will start for the Blue Jays who was pounded by the Rays with 6 runs on 7 hits in his last start. The Mariners are on a roll as they have won 5 straight series and 5 of their last 6 games. Marco Gonzales will start for the Mariners and he has been doing a great job this season ans hasn't allowed more than 2 runs per game in his last 5 starts. He has been effective against the Blue Jays in his career. The Mariners get here in better shape and have the better pitcher so I'll go with them.

PICK: Mariners ML (-137)
