MLB Betting – Oakland at Seattle

MLB betting on Wednesday has the Seattle Mariners hosting the Oakland Athletics in the 2nd of a three-game series.

It should be Clay Mortensen in this bet on MLB matchup against Doug Fister.

MLB betting has Mortensen at 2-3 on the season with a 6.07 ERA this season.  Fister is 2-4 with a 4.50 ERA this MLB betting season for the Mariners. Mortensen was part of the big trade that sent Matt Holliday to St. Louis. He hasn’t done much so far this MLB betting season. He gave up seven runs on six hits and a walk last time out but only three of the runs were earned against the Rangers. He had won his previous two MLB betting starts. He lost to the Mariners earlier this bet on MLB month as he allowed four earned runs on six hits and three walks over seven innings.

Fister was very good for four innings last time against Toronto before it came apart on him.  He has now lost three straight in MLB betting.  The problem has been the long ball.  He has given up six home runs in his past four online betting starts and 11 overall in 54 innings as bet on MLB stats show.  This will be his second MLB betting start against the A’s. He had a no-decision last time in online sportsbook results against the A’s as he held them to one run over five innings.

Oakland is one of those tough teams to figure out in MLB betting. They are just good enough on the road to make things interesting in online betting. They are just outside the Top 10 in both hitting and pitching so you never can tell what will happen with them.  They are under .500 on the road but they are almost always underdogs which makes them worth considering in MLB betting.

Seattle has been solid at home this season in MLB betting. It is all because of their pitching. Felix Hernandez has been great and overall the Mariners are in the Top 10 in fewest runs allowed. The reason they don’t win more is an anemic offense that is near the bottom of the league in runs scored as MLB betting stats show.
