GAME OF THE MONTH (MLB): MIKE'S TOP RATED TOTAL FOR MAY
Minnesota vs. Seattle,
05/18/2019 22:10 EDT,
Score: 18 - 4
Total: -114/+9 Over
The over/under is 31-14-2 in games involving the Seattle Mariners this season, and I think Saturday's matchup with the Minnesota Twins will fly over the total.
Twins right-hander Jose Berrios (6-2, 3.05 ERA) was tagged with five runs on 12 hits and three walks in 5 2/3 innings of a 5-4 loss to the Angels last time out. Over is 5-0 in Mariners last five games vs. a right-handed starter.
The Mariners turn to left-hander Wade LeBlanc (2-0, 4.50 ERA) who will make his first start since April 12 after a stint on the injured list. LeBlanc has made three starts in 2019 with 21 hits allowed over 16 innings of work. Over is 7-2-1 in Twins last 10 games vs. a left-handed starter.
We can also note that Minnesota and Seattle rank 2nd and 3rd respectively in slugging percentage this season.
10* play on OVER.
