Seattle vs. Texas,
05/20/2019 20:05 EDT,
Score: 9 - 10
Money Line: -143 Texas
The Mariners starter Leake's worst outing of the year came against the Rangers on April 27 when he allowed 10 hits and 9 runs (5 earned) in 5 innings in a 15-1 loss in Seattle and according to my cross reference pitching vs batting order power rankings does not matchup well vs Rangers. Meanwhile, Minor beat the Mariners, 15-1 in that above mentioned April 27 tilt, by holding them to one run in seven innings. He allowed three hits and struck out 13. Minor earned a victory in his last start last Wednesday, when he allowed one run over five innings as the Rangers cruised past the Royals 6-1 and has momentum and confidence entering this tilt vs since April 27 Seattle team that is the worst . He entered Sunday ranked among the AL's top 10 in both ERA and strikeouts (tied for 10th with 56).
SEATTLE is 1-13 against the money line vs. a starting pitcher whose strikes out 5 or more batters per start this season.
TEXAS is 8-3 against the money line in home games against division opponents this season.
MLB Road underdogs with a money line of +125 to +175 (SEATTLE) - with a starting pitcher whose gives up 7 or more hits/start, starting a pitcher who walked 1 or less hitters each of his last 2 outings are 7-43 L/5 seasons for a 86% go against conversion rate for bettors.
Play on Texas to win on the ML
