Score: 6 - 7
Total: -102/+9 Under
Mariners LH Joe Saunders (11-13, 4.92 ERA) vs. Royals RH Jeremy Guthrie (13-10, 4.08)
Saunders the Mariners starter this afternoon has pitched well against the Royals, recording a perfect 4-0 record and 2.81 ERA in seven career starts.In his last outing the southpaw defeated Houston allowing just one unearned run and six hits in 5 1/3 frames. Meanwhile, Guthrie his Royals pitching opponent has not done all that well vs Seattle, but fortunately for the Royals and Guthrie the Mariners offense is in a huge slump and have only scored more than 3 runs just three times in their L/13 overall. With that said, Im betting there is good value on the total and recommending we bet under the number. Under is 5-0 in Mariners last 5 games vs. a starter with a WHIP greater than 1.30.Under is 4-1-2 in Saunders' last 7 starts as a road underdog of +151 to +200.Under is 9-1-2 in Royals last 12 games vs. a starter with a WHIP greater than 1.30.
