Cleveland at Seattle
Friday 07/18 10:10 PM Eastern
3 units on Seattle -1.5 runs +164 (runline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: WIN
Cleveland finally won some games, but it took a team colder than them to do it. They did it against the Rays who have now dropped seven straight. Aaron Laffey completed May with a 1.59 ERA, but has since pitched to a five ERA, and the Tribe has lost four of his last five starts. Felix Hernandez has allowed just 24 hits in his last 38 innings pitched, while striking out 39, and has demonstrated the stuff he was credited with when he first arrived in the bigs. Seattle has now won five of his last six starts, and we like them to win big here. We like the Mariners on the runline. Hernandez has been 6-3 in his wins vs. the runline, while Laffey is yet to cover a runline on the road in games he has lost. Favorable situation for the M's to win one big.
