MLB odds may favor the San Diego Padres as they host the Seattle Mariners but the trends definitely point to Seattle.
MLB betting odds have seen the Padres do pretty well at home this season while the Mariners have struggled on the road. This is the first of a three game series between the two teams.
MLB odds trends tell us that the Mariners have won 14 of the last 20 games between the two teams. The Mariners have owned the Padres at San Diego recently, winning eight of the last ten meetings versus the MLB odds at the sports book. Since Interleague play began the two teams usually play once a year. Last year they played three games in San Diego and the Mariners swept the Padres. It is unusual anytime to see the Mariners sweep a road series but that was even more surprising considering Jake Peavy took the loss in one of those games for San Diego.
Seattle wins games versus the MLB odds with pitching. They have been in the Top 5 in the league in ERA this season as MLB odds stats show. The Mariners have had solid performances most of the season from their starters. The problem for Seattle is an offense that has been last in the league. When you don’t score runs it is tough to win games and that has been Seattle’s problem versus the MLB odds at the sports book.
San Diego has been very good at home this season versus the MLB odds but poor on the road. The Padres don’t really have very good MLB odds numbers on offense or defense. Their hitting is not that much better than Seattle’s and their pitching is far worse. That could be one reason why the Mariners have had success at San Diego in recent seasons in online sports betting. MLB odds are still likely to favor the Padres since they are at home.
Betting the MLB odds total over has been the way to go recently when these two teams have played. 12 of the last 20 meetings have gone over the MLB odds total with one tie. Six of the last ten between the two at San Diego have gone over the MLB betting odds. Those MLB betting odds numbers are surprising considering both of these two teams struggle to score runs.
