MLB Betting Odds & Probable Starting Pitchers
Pittsburgh Pirates (Jeff Locke) -128
Seattle Mariners (Joe Saunders) +120
Total: 7

Earlier this year, the Mariners and the Pirates met at PNC Park, and there were only a total of eight runs scored in the two games. On one blush, it seems as though a game between LHP Jeff Locke and LHP Joe Saunders would seem to favor the ‘over’, especially with the number only coming in at seven runs. However, the Bucs are only batting .220 this year against left-handed pitching (.240 against righties), while the M’s are only hitting .229 against lefties (.237 against righties). Pittsburgh is averaging 3.63 runs per nine innings against lefties, while Seattle is only at 3.45. It’s clear that this is going to be a tough matchup for both sides, especially for a Mariners outfit that is taking on Locke, who is 6-1 with a 2.01 ERA and 1.13 WHIP this season. Both teams have been hitting the ball well, and we do have to admit that’s a bit of a concern. However, both have been beating up historically bad pitchers (save for Jered Weaver for the Angels) and teams with bullpens that have been suspect in those outings. We love the idea of this one failing to reach the ‘total’, knowing that neither team should again get beyond four runs at best. A 4-2 final score seems to be just about right.

Pirates @ Mariners Pick: Under 7
Pirates @ Mariners Score Prediction: Pirates 4 – Mariners 2
