Mariners are trying to recover for the wild card race in Texas Seattle but the calendar is quickly coming to a close. Great to see one and all here at HRWager. Rangers have been burying the other teams in the AL West and at 82-56 their lead is at 8.5 games. Even worse news for the Mariners is that that number does not represent the whole they are in. Houston is even ahead of them in the standings. At 70-67, this close to the .500 mark will not gain them the post season. Two established starters in this one so let us look at the market prices and give our Free Pick for MLB Betting on 9/6 right now.
Texas Seattle : Mixed bag on Ranger’s Perez
The starter for the Rangers has been a mixed bag as of late. His last three starts can not even be used here because of their fluctuation. He has a WHIP of 1.58 and an ERA over six in that span. However his last start, he was aces against this Seattle team. Furthermore, the Rangers are 11-5 against Seattle this year. Texas has had to use their big bats against them as Seattle has scored seven or more runs against them a whopping six time this season. Paxton has been productive in his last three starts for Seattle with middle of the road numbers in his last three games. SO how does all of this equate to a price and market reaction?
Seattle is the Favorite
Even with Perez handling them his last time out, the Seattle ML in this one is close to -120. It has held steady for the overnight portion of wagering. Total has been a buzzsaw as it opened at 8, fluctuated at 8 1/2 and has now dipped back down to 8. Part of this might be the extra day of rest for Paxton. He tore a fingernail and you never know how his mechanics might cope with the discomfort. That potential over the added rest is a concern for tonight’s wager.
Seattle bats have been humming and it would take a lot for Perez to repeat his performance. Paxton is a grinder and will allow some runs. That is why the total went up. We do not see a reason why it would dip again. Follow the early trend here. Our MLB Free Pick of the day is the over 8 runs for Texas Seattle tonight on 9/6. Good fortune to us all and we will see you tomorrow here at HRWager.
