Minnesota Twins vs. Seattle Mariners

MLB Baseball: Thursday, May 16th 2019 10:10 PM EST TIME

The Minnesota Twins are ready to begin a nice long road trip as they head to Seattle to take on the Mariners. As for the Mariners, they are they seem to be back on track winning at home.

Twins Notes

Surprise, Surprise, the Minnesota Twins have finished off the first 1/4 of the baseball season by being one of the best teams. Even with the likes of the Cleveland Indians and Chicago White Sox in the division, the Twins finished off with an impressive 26-15 overall record and are looking to keep that going. Even though they might be heading upward, their recent games speak otherwise. Depending on Wednesday’s result with the Angels, the Twins could lose back to back series.

  1. Max Kepler (L) RF
  2. Jorge Polanco (S) DH
  3. Eddie Rosario (L) LF
  4. C.J. Cron (R) 1B
  5. Willians Astudillo (R) 3B
  6. Jonathan Schoop (R) 2B
  7. Ehire Adrianza (S) SS
  8. Jason Castro (L) C
  9. Byron Buxton (R) CF

The Twins are going to need a strong start in Game 1 of this series against the Mariners and that will come with starting pitcher Michael Pineda. He comes into this game with a 7.56 ERA in his last five starts, but continued to show signs of improvement in his outing last Saturday against Detroit, when he made his first quality start since April 13.

Mariners Notes

As for the Seattle Mariners, they might of had the greatest of 1/4 baseball starts to the season, but are still very much in the mix in the AL West. The Mariners enter this game with an overall record of 22-23, but seem to be turning the corner ever since they got swept by the Boston Red Sox. They have won two straight games against the Oakland Athletics as it was a short two-game series sweep for them. Now the Mariners have one day’s rest and will be ready to rock and roll again on Thursday.

  1. Mitch Haniger (R) CF
  2. Domingo Santana (R) LF
  3. Edwin Encarnacion (R) 1B
  4. Daniel Vogelbach (L) DH
  5. Ryon Healy (R) 3B
  6. Jay Bruce (L) RF
  7. Tim Beckham (R) 2B
  8. Tom Murphy (R) C
  9. J.P. Crawford (L) SS

For the Mariners, they will be sending out Erik Swanson to the hill as the 25-year-old rookie has been inconsistent in his five starts in place of the injured Wade LeBlanc. Swanson gave up 7 hits and 7 runs in 4 2/3 innings in his last start in Boston in a 14-1 loss.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

I really do not like the pitching matchup for either team, but there is one trend I’m leaning a lot on. The Twins are 1-5 in the last 6 meetings in Seattle as well as 0-5 in the last 5 meetings. With the Mariners on rest, expect Seattle to come out of this game with being the winner.

Prediction: Mariners

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

It has been awhile for both of these pitchers to get consistent, but that will change on Thursday. The total is set very high as the Under is the play here as both lineups are batting both under .240 on the season. The Under is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings in Seattle as well as 4-0 in the last 4 meetings.

Prediction: UNDER
