OVERs the Story When Mariners and Rangers Collide in Texas

The Seattle Mariners have finally swam above water and are two games over .500 for the second time in the MLB campaign. They’ll look to complete a three-game sweep of the host Texas Rangers today, where sportsbooks opened the Rangers as -115 home favorites with a total of 11.

Shark Bites
  • The Mariners are 3-8 SU in their last 11 games on the road against the Rangers.
  • The total has gone UNDER in five of the Rangers’ last seven games at home with Andrew Cashner as the starting pitcher.
  • The Rangers are 1-5 SU and ATS in their last six games when closing out a series.

Ariel Miranda and Andrew Cashner are expected to get the start for the M’s and Rangers, respectively. Miranda (7-4, 4.31 ERA) has hit a bit of a wall lately, going four starts without a decision despite striking out a career-high 10 in six innings of work against the New York Mets in his last appearance. The 28-year-old has only faced Texas once in his career, when he allowed three unearned runs and three hits in a six-inning effort against the Rangers last season.

Cashner (6-8, 3.48) has won back-to-back starts and three of his last four. The hurler is 0-1 with a 3.18 ERA in two appearances against Seattle this season and 0-3 with a 3.58 ERA in six career turns against them.

The OVER is red-hot when these teams collide in Texas. In the last 13 between the Mariners and Rangers in the Lone Star State, the OVER is 10-3.
