2010 Season MLB Baseball Past Picks

Cleveland at Seattle
Thursday 09/02 10:10 PM Eastern
2 units on Seattle -150 (moneyline) (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: LOSS
The Indians have definitely improved, but that has shown up more at home than on the road. The Tribe is second to the fading Pirates in road futility as over their last 80 road games Cleveland is a woeful 24-56. That includes 15-40 in their last 55 vs. a right-hand starter. Cleveland has also had problems after a loss, where they are just 32-67 in their last 99. The Mariners are good in the right spot, and that sweet spot is as a good sized favorite. The Mariners bring a 10-2 mark into this one their last 12 times favored from -151 to -200. Doug Fister has completed 17 of his 22 starts by allowing 3 runs or less, and the Tribe's Josh Tomlin is finding too much of the strike zone, allowing 5 HRs in his 35 big league innings. I like Seattle in this one.
