Tough to buck the Seattle Mariners’ red hot lineup, which just shredded the Boston pitching staff for 34 runs over the past four days. Seattle’s bats scored at least six runs in every game en-route to winning three of four and currently lead the American League with a .904 OPS.

Event: (923) Los Angeles Angels at (924) Seattle Mariners
Sport/League: MLB
Date/Time: April 1, 2019 10PM EDT
Play: Total Over 8.5 (-115)

While Seattle’s offense is clicking, not in any rush to back veteran right hander Felix Hernandez in his first start. The 34 year old is capable of periodically registering a quality effort but attempting to guess when those may come this season isn’t recommended. Los Angeles slammed Hernandez last season piling up 13 hits, 6 walks and 12 ER in just 8 1/3 innings. “King” Felix went 0-2 in that pair of starts and limped out with a 2.28 WHIP and 12.96 ERA. With the M’s bats raking right now and LA having great recent success versus Hernandez, the lean here will be toward the “over” 8.5 runs. Home plate umpire won’t be known until later this evening but still inclined to side with the fundamentals which indicate a 5-4 ticket cashing final isn’t too much to ask for.

Recommendation: OVER 8.5 (-115)
