Why bet on the Seattle Mariners?

The Mariners will hope to get their offense going again this Tuesday night after having their bats silenced in the series opener against Toronto. Among the best bets for the Mariners to deal damage at the plate are first baseman Ty France and shortstop JP Crawford, who entered Game 1 of this series batting .326 and .311, respectively.

They will look to pounce on a seemingly vulnerable arm of Blue Jays starter Jose Berrios, who has given up 11 earned runs on 13 hits in 10 innings across his past two starts. It’s also worth noting that France is 2-for-3 in his career against Berrios. On the mound, meanwhile, for the Mariners this Tuesday is Logan Gilbert, who is 4-1 with a 2.13 ERA and 1.11 WHIP, so far this 2022 MLB season.

Why bet on the Toronto Blue Jays?

The Blue Jays haven’t looked quite right of late, but at least they are coming off a 6-2 win to kick off this three-game homestand against Seattle. Toronto is just 2-6 in their last eight games, causing them to drop down to third place in the American League East division. Having stopped the bleeding with their Monday night victory at home, the Blue Jays can continue rolling with their superior offense that is taking a bit of a time to cool off.

They are hitting just .235/.299/.382 as a team, but with guys like Vladimir Guerrero Jr., George Springer, and Bo Bicjette, plus Matt Chapman, the Blue Jays remain a fearsome lineup for opposing pitchers. Furthermore, the current Toronto roster has a career batting average of .429 against Wilbert.

Berrios, on the other hand, could rebound from a pair of losses with his first home start of the month. The last time he pitched at Rogers Centre, he tamed the Houston Astros in a 2-1 win, allowing just an earned run on seven hits in 5.2 innings.

Mariners vs. Blue Jays Betting Prediction

The trio of Springer, Bichette, and Guerrero all hit well in the first game. Expect them to keep it going against Gilbert and the Mariners’ bullpen that’s just 18th in the MLB with a 3.69 ERA. Toronto’s relievers haven’t been good either, but at least it’s getting more run support.
