Baltimore vs Seattle: Struggling Squads Clash at Camden Yards
O's are well off 2014 AL East Championship pace
Following a brilliant season last year, Baltimore went 96-66 and won the AL East, the Orioles have struggled early this season. Baltimore is 16-19 and have been wildly inconsistent as three victories is their longest winning run. Hitting and pitching share equal blame for the mediocrity as the Orioles are in the middle of the pack with a .258 batting average (18th) and a 4.06 (16th) team ERA.
Seattle Mariners: Starting to lose sight of streaking Astros in the AL West
Highly placed to win the 2015 World Series, with the fifth best overall odds, Seattle has also been largely underachieving during the first quarter of the 2015 MLB season. The Mariners are 17-20 and trail a surprisingly solid Houston squad by seven games in the AL West. Thanks in large part to All World ace Felix Hernandez, Seattle is tenth in runs allowed (152) but their bats have been quiet as the Mariners are 27th overall with just 140 runs scored. Seattle is 6-3 over their last nine games.
Orioles vs Mariners MLB Prediction: Baltimore is 11-9 at home while Seattle is 6-10 on the road. Tonight’s pitching match-up favors the Orioles as RHP Miguel Gonzalez (4-2ERA 2.93) faces Seattle RHP Taijuan Walker (1-4 ERA 7.22). We are soaring with the Orioles here as we back Baltimore with a 650 unit wager on the money line odds posted at the Sportsbook.ag online wagering website.
