Analysis

Seattle is again undervalued Thursday against the MLB’s best overall current team in the Boston Red Sox. Boston enjoyed Wednesday off as a travel day, while the Mariners played late into the night at home in an 8-6 win over the Angels. That’s factored into Thursdays line, along with Felix Hernandez’s prolonged struggles in later innings. Yet, the Mariners have showed offensive efficiency recently that will be the side difference. Grab Seattle.

Look for Felix Hernandez to bounce back from his three-inning debacle last time out, and for the Mariners (13-3 last 16 home games) to cool off David Price. Back the home dog.

The projection model has the Mariners toppling the Red Sox in better than half of simulations for their Thursday meeting, making the home underdog a must-play for the plus-money payback. The Mariners are on a 13-3 run in home games, and have won seven of their past eight against AL East opponents.

 Mariners: 10-2 home Game One of a series this season; and Hernandez 6-1 team starts at night this season. With the Mariners 14-9 against southpaws this season, we recommend a 1* play on Seattle. Thank you and good luck as always.

Analysis

The Mariners are one of the hottest teams in the league, and they've crushed lefties this season to the tune of a .775 OPS and .334 wOBA. Seattle hitters have also done well against Boston starter David Price with a wOBA of .337 and an xwOBA (expected wOBA) of .363. This is good value on a Mariners team that has the third-best record in baseball and is 23-12 at home.

Analysis

There's a risk of jetlag for the Red Sox, who played at Baltimore Wednesday, but I like other trends at play. Seattle's Felix Hernandez has allowed at least four runs in six of his last seven starts, and five runs in four of them. The Sox aren't the ideal lineup to face while in a slump, especially for righties -- Boston is a league-best .270 against RHPs. Boston's David Price, meanwhile, has his 'A' game going, and the Mariners have never been able to figure him out regardless of who he's pitching for. Their lineup is a lifetime 11-of-71 against him (.155). Boston hasn't lost since Mookie Betts came off the disabled list.

Analysis


In this "go-with vs. go-with" situation, it's difficult to trust Felix Hernandez, who in most recent starts has had a hard time getting people out. Boston pitching has held opponents to a .213 average in last seven, indicating the bullpen not having many leaks.

Analysis

David Price has looked far better over his last five starts. He is nowhere near as dominant as he was from 2010-16 but he is still 30 cents better than the average pitcher. The Red Sox average 1.2 runs less per game on the road than they do at home. Felix Hernandez has an ERA of 4.04 at home and 7.71 on the road. His home ERA has been inflated by two bad starts out of his seven at Safeco. Go Under.
