Expert Pick & Score Prediction

This game looks like a difficult call, seeing as how both starting pitchers are throwing the ball very well in their last starts. However, this really isn’t that much of a tough choice when you see how Seattle is putting runs on the board nicely while simultaneously doing a nice job of keeping their opponents from scoring.Seattle has held the opposition to three runs or less in three of their last five wins while Los Angeles was held to three runs or less in four straight games before their last win. Overall, the Dodgers have been limited to four runs or less in nine of their last 10 games while scoring two runs or less in four of those affairs. The Mariners are on a roll right now that I believe they’ll continue with the big home win in this one!Score: Los Angeles Dodgers 3 – Seattle Mariners 6
