There are some teams in the MLB who are so bad that you expect them to be on the losing end of every game that they play. On the flipside, there are teams who are down in the cellar of the MLB who are seen as a potential threat every single night. These tend to be the teams who, despite their lowly standing, are still able to deliver some potent offense on any given night. When you have a team capable of cranking out 7 or 8 runs in a game, they are sometimes able to overcome their defensive frailties.
One such team is the Seattle Mariners. They are a team that can drive home a lot of runs on a good night, which makes them a tricky team to go against. The Milwaukee Brewers found that out the hard way in the opening game of this series, so they will be looking to bounce back when they once again host the Mariners on Wednesday night as MLB Betting favorites.

Why bet on the Seattle Mariners?We are all now well aware of the collapse that the Mariners experienced after storming out the gate at the start of the season. As mentioned, though, this is a team that still has the ability to be dangerous given that they have a high-powered offense. They have hammered home 443 runs this season, which has them among the elite in the league in terms of offense.
The fact that they have surrendered over 500 runs is the reason why they are now sitting at just 36-47 on the season. The Mariners have been decent of late, taking out the Brewers 8-3 in the first game of this series, which takes them to 6-4 in their last 10. The Mariners are 19-22 SU and 11-20 ATS as a road dog.

Why bet on the Milwaukee Brewers?The Milwaukee Brewers look like a team ready for the All-Star Break, as they are beginning to stumble to the midway point of the season, going 3-7 in their last 10 games. Despite being on a poor run of form, they are still sitting at 42-37 on the season, which has them a game back of the Chicago Cubs in the NL Central.
The loss to the Mariners in the opening game of this series is a bit of a surprise when you consider that the Brewers are a very decent 24-16 SU and ATS in their own ballpark. Perhaps it shouldn’t be a huge shocker, though, as the Brewers have struggled in interleague play, going 2-6 SU in those games. Milwaukee will hand the ball to Adrian Houser (2-1 2.27 ERA) for this one.
