Baseball betting has a potential pitching duel on Thursday as the Los Angeles Angels host the Seattle Mariners.
This bet on baseball matchup has Seattle’s Ryan Rowland-Smith going up against the Angels John Lackey.
Baseball betting indicates that Rowland-Smith is 3-2 on the season with a 3.88 ERA while Lackey is 9-7 with a 3.74 ERA. Rowland-Smith gave up just three runs on four hits in eight innings last time out against the A’s. This is Rowland-Smith’s first start this baseball betting season against the Angels.
Lackey was great last time out against Kansas City, allowing just one run in nine innings. Lackey has allowed just one earned run in his last 17 innings as bet on baseball numbers indicate. He has given up three earned runs or less in 15 of his 22 starts this season. He has gone at least seven innings in eight of his last eleven. Lackey pitched earlier this season against the Mariners and was 1-1 in those two baseball betting starts.
The Mariners had won four of six in Los Angeles this season before this bet on baseball series began. Six of the last ten at Los Angeles between the two teams had gone under the baseball betting total before this series began.
The Mariners have had a nice baseball betting year, going over .500 but in the American League that is simply not good enough to make the playoffs. The Mariners have a solid pitching staff but they simply can’t score enough runs to win games in baseball betting on a regular basis. Ichiro is a nice hitter but has no power and other than Russell Branyan and Jose Lopez, the Mariners don’t have enough consistent hitting to impact baseball betting on a regular basis.
Los Angeles is probably going to win the American League West again this baseball betting season. The Angels have won with offense which is a bit of a surprise. In the past the Angels have won with pitching but not this season. The Angels are second only to the Yankees in terms of runs scored as baseball betting numbers show. Kendry Morales is having an MVP type season leading the Angels this baseball betting season.
