Baltimore at Seattle

3 units on Seattle -190 (moneyline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: WIN
Baltimore is 2-13 on the season. Their offense is non-existent (3.0 runs per game overall and just 2.5 per game in night games). Seattle has allowed just 3.5 runs per game overall, 2.2 in home games and 2.0 over their last seven. With Felix Hernandez on the mound, Baltimore is really going to struggle to put up runs in this one. Sure Seattle's offense isn't great, but that doesn't matter. The Orioles are just 5-19 since last season when facing an AL team with a batting average under .255. When Hernandez has faced an AL team batting under .265 the past two seasons, he has gone 13-1! Meanwhile, the Orioles are a perfect 0-12 the past three seasons after a three-game span batting .200 or worse. Even at these odds, there's value on the Mariners here.
