These two clubs in their past five meetings have played to under the total four times with one push. Seattle has been an under machine with nine straight under the total results and we have been beneficiaries of many of those plays if you have followed us here at the Sportsbook Room. The pitching matchup tonight will have Jason Hammel a right hander for Baltimore facing off against Hiashi Iwakuma a right hander who makes his first start of the year for the Mariners after spending time this season in the bullpen. Hammel gets upgraded tonight as he faces an anemic hitting Mariners ball club and playing at Safeco Park that favors the pitchers as the thick marine ocean air keeps balls from carrying as we see so much in games played in west coast stadiums. Prior to a poor effort against the Angels Hammel allowed a total of one earned run in starts against the Nationals and Braves. He has a very good history pitching against the Mariners as the Orioles hurler sports an ERA of just 1.59 and WHIP of 0.88 over his career. Baltimore may be a team active around the trading deadline as the club simply struggles for offense which is not a good thing if you are in the American League East. The Orioles are pushing across just 3.4 runs per game over their past seven games. Hisashi Iwakuma pitchers his first game against the Orioles in his career so the Baltimore hitters will not be familiar with this Japanese pitcher. He may not go more than five innings tonight but that is OK because Seattle’s bullpen ERA at home is at 2.13. The Mariners hitting has been horrendous as the club is averaging just 1.3 runs per game over their past seven games. Poor hitting, a good pitchers park and two good bullpens create a solid under pick at best sportsbooks online.
