4 units on Seattle -1.5 runs +135 (runline) (risk 4 to return 4) RESULT: LOSS
Eric Bedard has been the most consistent pitcher in baseball over his last 25 starts, not counting his last one last year, when he was injured. He has had quality starts (three runs or less in 6+ innings) in 24 of the 25. The current Rangers' roster has done absolutely nothing with Bedard, as they combine to hit just .147 against him. In contrast, Victor Padilla has had no success against the Mariners, as he is 2-5 with a 5.66 lifetime ERA. Ichiro has worn him out to the tune of a .577 average, and as a team, the Mariners are well over .300 against Padilla. The Mariners will feast, while the Rangers will be hard pressed to score here.
