We came in with a solid MLB winner on Friday as the LA Angels rallied past the Seattle Mariners to earn their fourth straight win. Things look to be turning around for this Angels team as their young talented rookies have brought much needed power around Albert Pujols in their lineup with the absence of Torii Hunter and Vernon Wells who lack leadership and clutch hitting. It seems like Hunter and Wells lack the big hit in late innings in closely contested games. Our best betting pick from Saturday’s action comes again from this American League MLB contest between the LA Angels and Seattle Mariners. First pitch from Seattle is set for 7:15PM Eastern Time with national television coverage provided by FOX. With our MLB best bet we will play on the LA Angels and Seattle Mariners to play under the total of 6 ½ runs. The odds from the Angels and Mariners have come courtesy of Top Bet sportsbook.
The betting odds from the AL Major League Baseball contest had the home team Seattle Mariners favored by -132 odds with the Angels take back at +122 odds. The run over under opened up at 7 runs. Money early has landed on the road underdog as the Seattle Mariners are now lined as a -130 favorite with the underdog Angels now returning +120 odds. The total has held firm and has not moved off the opener of 7 runs. Those wagering on the Seattle Mariners on the run line laying -1 ½ runs will get back +175 odds. Those who take the +1 ½ runs with the LA Angels on the run line will have to lay -190 odds on their money line wager.
The LA Angels will send right hander Jerome Williams on the mound on Saturday. The Angels starter has been in good form as he sits with an ERA of just 2.57 in his past three starts working 21 innings. He has allowed two earned runs in each game pitched during that span. LA is giving up under 2 runs per game over their past seven contests. The Angels bats are still struggling as the team has got solid pitching despite a .211 batting average. Opponents are hitting just .164 against Angels pitching over their past seven games.
The Mariners will throw ace Felix Hernandez on the mound on Saturday to face the Angels anemic bats. King Felix has been outstanding throwing at the good pitchers park at Safeco Field this season. In four starts and 31 innings of work at home Felix Hernandez has allowed just three earned runs which calculate to an ERA of 0.87 and WHIP of .087. Low WHIP means pitchers allow few base runners and when you don’t allow base runners you stay away from giving up big innings. Hernandez has been good against the Angels allowing four earned runs in his past three starts working 25 innings. King Felix went nine innings in one start and eight in the two others. Two starters in good form and two weak hitting lineups lands us on the under but before wagering read a sports book review.
