The Los Angeles Angels and the Seattle Mariners meet tonight from Anaheim with the Angels’ playoff hopes quickly fading. All odds an trends for this important game can be found at Bovada sportsbook.
You may not have even noticed, but the Mariners have actually reached the .500 mark after a very good second half of the season. Although they have been winning games their offense is still prone to struggling and they have been carried in large part by their pitching which has been excellent. They are coming off of a loss last night to the Angels by a score of 5-4, but still they played hard until the last out. They will try and rebound tonight behind their ace, Felix Hernandez. Hernandez is going through a tough stretch however in which he has 3 loss and a no-decision in his last 4 starts.
The Angels on the other hand will be looking to keep hold on their fledgling playoff hopes. They have been playing very well the last month, but the problem is the other contenders have as well. In their 5-4 win they have now won 8 of 10 games overall. All of the games are important now for the Angels and they will send CJ Wilson to the hill tonight and will look for him to respond in a big way. Wilson will look to rebound from two rough starts in a row in which he has only pitched 7.2 innings total.
Although the Angels really need this game, we really like Hernandez in this spot. It is rare he pitches and is this much of an underdog so we will take advantage and take Seattle on the moneyline so pick up sportsbook promo codes.
