We nailed a solid winner with our best betting pick on Saturday as the Boston Red Sox and Seattle Mariners play under the total of 7 ½ runs for the third time in this series. It was another very low scoring game in Seattle as the ballpark plays to low totals with a spacious ballpark and a thick marine layer that keeps balls from carrying because of the close proximity to the ocean at Safeco Park. Josh Beckett gave Boston a solid six innings of work as he allowed an anemic Seattle Mariners offense just two earned runs all game while the bullpen for Boston which has greatly improved since the start of the season allowed just one earned run in the game’s final five innings of an extra inning affair. Good thing Seattle has a great bullpen this season as Erasmo Ramirez went just 2 2/3rds in his start and the Mariners relievers that sported an ERA of just over 2 runs at Safeco Park allowed just one earned run in the game’s final 8 1/3rds innings.

The LA Angels will send left hander C.J. Wilson to the hill on Sunday afternoon to face lefty Aaron Laffey for the Blue Jays. Wilson has been very good for the Angels as the veteran hurler has allowed one earned run or less in seven of his past nine starts. At Baltimore in his last start Wilson allowed just one earned run in six innings. Laffey had a good start back on Thursday as he allowed the Boston Red Sox no earned runs and three hits over six innings of work. With two starters in good form under 10 runs is the best play today at the sports book.
