Mariners' Hot Bats are a Boon for OVER Bettors

The Seattle Mariners have been scoring runs in bunches lately and will look to keep those gaudy offensive numbers going against the Texas Rangers on Thursday.

Shark Bites
  • The Mariners are 0-5 SU in their last 5 games after a win.
  • The Rangers are 8-3 SU in their last 11 games against teams with winning records.
  • The total has gone OVER in the Rangers' last 7 games with a closing total of 8.5 or more.

Derek Holland and Taijuan Walker will get the nod for the Rangers and M’s, respectively. Holland has a 2.00 ERA in three starts since returning from a two-month absence due to a shoulder injury. The veteran is 12-5 with a 3.56 ERA and 1.21 WHIP in 24 career apperances against the Mariners.

Walker (4-10, 4.60) is 0-4 with a 9.55 ERA over his last five starts and has given up 23 home runs in just 103 2/3 innings of work this year. Yikes.

The Mariners are going above totals with ease of late. In Seattle's last nine tilts, the OVER is 8-1.
