The Mariners definitely look improved this season and gamblers who bet on MLB action may give them a look in this contest against the Angels. Here are some of the important numbers for the Angels and Mariners.
MLB betting stats show that Seattle really struggled at home last season going 35-46. That is something that must change if the Mariners are to contend in the AL West this season. One of the problems for Seattle last season in MLB odds was that they couldn’t handle the Angels. Los Angeles won 14 of the 19 meetings between the two teams as MLB betting stats show.
Early this season the Angels have looked weaker than they did a year ago in MLB betting for a number of reasons. MLB betting stats tell us that last year the Angels won 100 games but this season they have had pitching injuries and in the offseason they did lose some talent. Los Angeles has a great manager in Mike Scioscia though and he always finds a way to win.
Gamblers who bet on MLB action may remember that the Angels were a superb road team in MLB betting a year ago, going 50-31. It seems unlikely they will have similar success this season but they always get respect from gamblers who bet on MLB games. Los Angeles was the most profitable team for baseball gamblers last season in terms of road games and it wasn’t even close.
Last season the Angels only outscored Seattle by less than one run per game so the MLB betting action is always competitive when these two teams matchup. Seattle made a number of changes in the offseason including the return of Ken Griffey Jr. so perhaps the Mariners can be improved versus the MLB odds this year.
The Angels and Mariners combined to average 9.5 runs per game last season in their 19 games as MLB betting stats indicate. That is about an average MLB betting total in the American League although it is a little bit higher than average for Los Angeles considering their pitching staff.
