MLB betting has the Seattle Mariners favored at home on Saturday as they host the Kansas City Royals.
It is the second of a four game bet on MLB series between the two teams. Here is a look at this matchup on Saturday between the Royals and Mariners.
MLB betting trends have seen this series very one-sided in favor of the home teams. The Royals have won 9 of the last 10 at Kauffman Stadium while the Mariners have won 7 of the last 10 in Seattle. This is the second MLB betting game of a 7-game road trip for the Royals. This is the first series between the two teams in Seattle this season. Last year the Royals won both games at Seattle in MLB betting against the Mariners by scored of 11-6 and 5-1.
Those that bet on MLB totals at the sportsbook should be aware that six of the last ten between the two teams at Seattle have gone over the MLB betting total. It all depends upon the pitching matchup when you bet the total with these two teams.
The Royals are just not a team you want to be backing very often in MLB betting. They started the season well but then collapsed and have never recovered. Their pitching has some potential but their lineup other than Billy Butler is awful. The pitching staff with Zach Grienke, Gil Meche and Brian Bannister can be good at times but they simply don’t score enough runs to win in MLB betting. What is amazing is that even with those three the Royals’ ERA is still near the bottom of the league as MLB betting numbers indicate.
The Mariners had stayed in the Wild Card race in the American League for a while but they are now not really part of the discussion. Seattle has been strong in runs allowed as their pitching staff is in the Top 10 in the league as MLB betting statistics show, but their hitting is very poor. The Mariners have been near the bottom of the league in runs scored as MLB betting numbers tell us and that has been their downfall.
