It is expected that the Rays will go with Andy Sonnanstine on Tuesday while Seattle counters with Jarrod Washburn. Early in the season gamblers who bet on MLB odds have been disappointed with Sonnanstine and rewarded with Washburn but it is still early.
MLB betting stats tell us that the Mariners have won 11 of the last 20 games against the Rays. Seattle and Tampa Bay have split the last 10 games in Seattle as MLB betting numbers show. Gamblers who bet on MLB action might want to take a shot with the Rays in this MLB betting matchup considering Sonnanstine was better in his last outing against the Yankees. That might not be saying much considering the Yankees lineup without A-Rod but it was a step in the right direction. Sonnanstine is 1-1 with a 2.66 ERA in three career starts against the Mariners and is 1-0 with a 1.26 ERA in two starts at Safeco Field as MLB betting stats show.
Washburn has been brilliant so far this season as MLB betting numbers show. He started the season with 12 scoreless innings and for the year he is 2-0 with a sparkling ERA of 1.29. Seattle has been one of the surprise teams in MLB betting this season with a renewed enthusiasm. They have an efficient offense and so far their pitching has been pretty good. As you look at MLB betting numbers you might want to throw out last season altogether when you look at Seattle. With a new manager and Griffey Jr. back with the team, Seattle is a team that gamblers who bet on MLB action are looking at. It might be too much of a stretch to ask them to be last year’s Rays, but so far this season the Mariners are a threat in MLB betting.
Tampa Bay still is a major contender in the American League and they will be no pushover in this MLB betting series. The Rays can outhit and outpitch the Mariners but they may not be able to match the enthusiasm level of Seattle.
