It is the first game of a three-game series between the two teams. The Mariners have won six of the last ten home games against Oakland in baseball betting odds and could be the choice in this game on Friday.
Baseball odds history tells us that the A’s and Mariners have split their last twenty games overall but the home team has had a slight edge. What is really surprising about the ten games in Seattle between the two teams last year is that only two of them were one run games. Oakland and Seattle look evenly matched but when they get together it seems blowouts are the rule, not the exception in baseball odds.
Many people predicted that Oakland would be a team to watch in baseball odds this season and perhaps that will still be the case. So far this season though the A’s have been disappointing in baseball betting odds. The main problem for Oakland has been an offense that has struggled. That was not supposed to be the case with the addition of Matt Holliday and Jason Giambi but far too often this season the A’s have struggled to score runs. The pitching staff has been adequate, ranking in the Top 10 in fewest runs allowed early in the season as baseball odds stats show.
Seattle has been on the opposite end in baseball odds compared to Oakland. The Mariners have been a pleasant surprise and a team that can impact baseball betting odds. They have been superb in runs allowed, ranking near the top of the league as baseball odds stats indicate. Felix Hernandez and Jarrod Washburn have been a potent 1-2 combination at the top of this rotation. The offense has not been great, but with great pitching the Mariners have been winning close games in baseball odds.
The Under has been the way to go in baseball odds in this series but just barely. The under is 10-8-2 in the last twenty games between the two teams and baseball odds trends show it is 5-4-1 in the last ten games at Seattle.
