TOP RATED 10* MLB BIG HITTER
Minnesota vs. Seattle,
05/19/2019 16:10 EDT,
Score: 4 - 7
Total: -106/+8½ Over
The Minnesota Twins and the Seattle Mariners combined for 20+ runs on Saturday, and with depleted bullpens (particularly for the home team) I expect Sunday's matchup to turn into another high-scoring affair.
Minnesota hands the ball to right-hander Kyle Gibson (4-1, 2.26 ERA). He was tagged with three runs on six hits and a pair of walks through 5 2/3 innings against the Halos last time out. Gibson has allowed 29 hits and eight walks in 26 1/3 innings of work through five road starts on the season (over is 4-1 in those games).
The Mariners counter with left-hander Yusei Kikuchi (2-1, 3.64 ERA) who served up three home runs in six innings against Oakland last time out. The 27-year-old rookie has made just one day starts in the big leagues, at Chicago White Sox on April 5 when he was tagged with six runs (four earned) through five frames. Over is 7-1-1 in Kikuchi's last nine starts overall.
Over/under is 34-12-2 in games involving the Mariners this season. Minnesota and Seattle rank 2nd and 3rd respectively in slugging percentage this season (prior to Saturday's slate of games).
10* play on OVER.
