Over/Under Odds: 9

Mariners at Rangers Pick: Seattle Mariners -130, Under 9

Odds from 

Okay, the over and under in this game is a toss up. It could go either way, but I think this game will stay on the under as both of these teams are struggling at times when it comes to run production even against weaker pitchers. The Mariners, though, are doing better when it comes to the overall pitching and the starting pitching in this game. Those two factors combined makes me think this game is going to hit the under and the Mariners will come out on top.
