The Mariners have started off the season strongly while the Rays have been up and down. Gamblers who bet on MLB action may see a pitching matchup between Jeff Niemann and Chris Jakubauskas.
MLB betting odds are likely to favor the Rays in this game simply for the fact that Tampa Bay has more talent. Neither of these two starting pitchers is that well known by those who bet on MLB odds so the Rays will probably get more attention. Niemann pitched better in his last outing as he allowed two runs on nine hits in six innings.
MLB betting numbers show that Seattle was 11-9 in the last 20 games before this three-game series began on Tuesday. The two teams had split their last 10 games in Seattle as MLB betting results show.
Tampa Bay has a lot of weapons on offense and a very tough pitching staff that can impact MLB betting odds on a regular basis. That is why they are one of the favorites for gamblers who bet on MLB in the American League. Niemann could be the one weak link in the rotation but that remains to be seen. He was a high draft choice and is very young so he could turn into another one of their future stars.
Seattle has been a surprise this season in MLB betting with a new manager and with the return of Ken Griffey Jr. to Seattle. Griffey really hasn’t done much but the enthusiasm level is higher this season. It is possible that Jakubauskas gets the start in this MLB betting matchup and if that is the case the Rays could be in trouble. Jakubauskas pitched very well in his last outing against the Angels and could be a pitcher to watch in MLB betting the next few weeks if he continues to stay in the rotation.
Oftentimes when Tampa Bay and Seattle get together the MLB betting matchups are low scoring. The Under is 12-7-1 in the last 20 meetings between the two teams and six of the last ten games at Seattle between the two have gone under the MLB betting total.
