Posted by Alex Murphy on Friday,May 29, 2015 10:50, EST in

It’s always fun to see a pair of teams on a hot streak go head to head, as it creates a great atmosphere that is often missing in this early part of the season. Two of the hottest teams in the league right now are the Cleveland Indians and the Seattle Mariners, and they will hook up for a 4-game series in Seattle, with the second of that series set for Friday night. Let’s review the trends, MLB odds, and expected moves for this game.

A Brief Look at the MLB Lines Prediction for Cleveland Indians at Seattle Mariners & Game Info

Time: May 29, 10:10 p.m. ET
Venue: Safeco Field, Seattle, Washington
National TV: SportsTime Ohio, WMMS 100.7, Indians Radio Network, WTAM 1100
Opening line: TBA

The Mariners (23-23) have seemingly become hot right out of nowhere. They have spent almost the whole season to this point trying to find some level of consistency, and it appears that they have now stuck gold. They are 7-3 in their last 10 games and are coming off a 3-game sweep of the Tampa Bay Rays. You might argue that they ran into the Rays at just the right time, but keep in mind that they took 2 of 3 from the Blue Jays in the series before that. These 4 games against the Indians are going to be a sterner test for them, though, and if they can come out on top, it may be just what they need to go on an extended run of good form. Taijuan Walker (1-5, 7.33 ERA) will start on Friday, and will need to be a whole lot better than what he has shown in his other starts this season.

The Cleveland Indians (21-25) share the same 7-3 record in their last 10 as the mariners, but it looks as though their run of form might be drawing to a close. After reeling off 6-straight wins, they ran into a wall in the form of the Texas Rangers. They lost the first 2 games in that series, but did bounce back with an impressive display on Wednesday to avoid the sweep. The Indians are still a good way off the pace in the AL Central, and will need to find an extended run of good form if they want to be in any way competitive in what is a very good division. Trevor Bauer (4-1, 3.02 ERA) will take to the hill for the Indians on Friday in search of his third consecutive win.

Key Betting Trends

Cleveland Indians

  • Cleveland is 6-2 SU in its last 8 games
  • The total has gone UNDER in 8 of Cleveland’s last 10 games

Seattle Mariners

  • Seattle is 4-1 SU in its last 5 games
  • The total has gone UNDER in 9 of Seattle’s last 13 games

Consider This Before Placing Your Bets

This looks to me like a pretty lopsided pitching match-up that falls heavily on the side of the Cleveland Indians. I think they will come away with a pretty comfortable win in this one.
