Pick #1 – Toronto Blue Jays at Seattle Mariners
The weekend is finally here and what better way to kicks things off then with some MLB baseball and what sounds better then taking in the Toronto Blue Jays (29-31) versus the Seattle Mariners (30-31) game that showcases two good teams really trying to break through to that next level. This pick looks favorable upon initial glance as the opening line on the total of 9 has now shifted a half point down to an 8. thanks to an early sharp money push which we will confidently follow and grab some nice value on the UNDER play. The public consensus for this game is 80% in favor of the over so we get the nice general consensus and public fade that we always like to have on our side in this one as well. The Toronto Blue Jays put up 4.3 runs on average over the last 10 games and the Seattle Mariners put up 2.80 runs on average over the last 10 games so we get our favorite betting spot to be in where just the basic averages get us to where we need to go. The weather at Safeco Field is looking like Partly Cloudy with a 53°F temp, a Humidity of 78% and a Wind blowing at 7 mph S and in giving us a weather scenario where the hitting should really be slowed down given the strong inward wind. Another really favorable part of this UNDER bet is the fact that the Blue Jays have an elite closing staff which should go along ways towards the later inning runs being shut down. One of the best parts of this pick is that we get a Joe Biagini (R) pitching who has a 0.00 ERA over 5 innings this year against SEA and is sporting a 1.29 ERA for the month of June. We also get starting pitcher Sam Gaviglio (R) pitching who has been throwing solid lately with a 1.80 ERA in June giving us two pitchers who should be able to keep the score low enough to hit the UNDER easily in this spot. The computer predicted score for this matchup is 7.5 so the UNDER 8.5 play gets all the right leans while agreeing with the AI predictor and at a price of -105 juice we should be super happy to grab a bunch value in this spot for all of the reasons above.
