Analysis
Our 25* MLB American League Underdog of the Year is with Seattle with the money line versus Boston at 10:10 pm et. Seattle is a dangerous underdog when playing at home at T-Mobile Park. They upset the Red Sox last night, 5-4, as a small money line underdog priced around +105. The oddsmakers have priced them as a bigger money line underdog tonight, yet the Mariners have even more value in Game 2 of this series. Seattle has won eight of their last twelve games to improve their record to 78-66 this season, and they have won five of their last seven games after a win in their last game. The Mariners have won seven of their last ten games against winning teams, and they have pulled off upsets in seven of their last ten games when the oddsmakers install them as the money line underdog. Seattle has won five of their last seven games at home against teams with winning records, and they have pulled off upsets in fifteen of their last twenty-three games at home when the oddsmakers price them at +125 or higher. The Mariners face Nathan Eovaldi who has a 10-8 record with a 3.57 era and a 1.15 whip in twenty-eight starts this season. The right-hander has not been the same pitcher when away from Fenway Park this season. He has an era of 4.87 and a 1.38 whip on the road. Boston has only won once in their last five games on the road with Eovaldi their starting pitcher in games when the oddsmakers install the over/under from 7 to 8.5. Boston has a 44-29 record at Fenway Park this season, yet they have won only seven of their last twenty-four games on the road. The Red Sox have won only five of their last nineteen games on the road against winning teams. Boston has only beaten two of the last eight winning teams they have played, and they have avoided an upset just once in their last five games when the oddsmakers install them as a favorite. They have a tricky challenge tonight against the Mariners’ Tyler Anderson. The left-hander has a 6-9 record with a 4.20 era and a 1.20 whip for the season yet he has been better as of late. In his last seven starts, Anderson has a 3.66 era and a 1.22 whip with 31 strikeouts and only seven walks in 39 1/3 innings. Anderson has an era of 3.23 in his eleven home starts with a 1.14 whip. His teams have won eight of their last twelve games at home when the oddsmakers install the over/under from 7 to 8.5, and his teams have won six of their last seven games when he is the starting pitcher in September. The Red Sox average only 4.3 runs per game on the road with a .242 batting average and a slugging percentage of .416. Boston has won only twice in their last twelve road games against left-handed starting pitchers. After last night’s loss, the Red Sox have won just once in their last five games at Seattle. Take Seattle with the money line. Good luck - Team Del Genio.
