Money Line: -145.00 Seattle (Home)
I like the Seattle Mariners to win this game against the Oakland Athletics on Sunday. The Mariners have looked really good in their games lately. They have won 4/5 of their previous 5 games and they are going to be looking for the series win here with a win in this game. The A's have been a very bad team all year and are 1 of the worst in the league, losing 5/6 of their previous 6 games and even getting swept in their most recent series. Frankie Montas (3-8, 3.20 ERA) is up for the A's here and he hasn't been great this year. He had 2 really good starts in his previous 2 but that hasn't really been a common theme for him with 3 really bad starts in a row right before that and I don't expect him to keep up the way he has been pitching in his 2 previous starts. The Mariners have been missing some players in their lineup lately because of injuries and suspensions but they have still been putting up runs in their games without those players and racking up the hits. Their offense really hasn't skipped a beat and I expect them to put up runs on Montas here when he hasn't been that great this year. Robbie Ray (6-6, 3.78 ERA) is up for the Mariners here and he had a rough start to the year but he has been pitching very well lately and is starting to look like the same guy he was when he was pitching for the Blue Jays last year. He has pitched 6+ innings in 4 starts in a row now and hasn't given up more than 1 run in any of those starts. I expect him to continue that here in this game and I see the Mariners winning this game with another great effort from their pitching staff. I like the Mariners to win this game.
T.M. Prediction: 4-1 Mariners.
