The Seattle Mariners are playing especially well of late. They owned a 42-31 record and were 26-12 at home.  They are winning around 70% of their recent games as of June 16.  One should especially consider a bet on the Mariners when playing at home but they are fair game on the road as well.

Mariners Power Rankings

(June 16, 2024) - "As the Mariners wait to see what develops with Bryan Woo's latest arm trouble, we can pause to marvel at what the Seattle rotation has done since Woo returned from the IL on May 10. Led by his 1.07 ERA over six starts during that span, Seattle has topped the majors with 19 quality starts while posting a 3.38 ERA and a collective strikeout-to-walk ratio of right about 5-to-1. The Mariners have pushed their lead in the AL West to 6½ games over the defending champion Rangers during that time. So, Seattle has built up a little buffer, but you'd hate to see a disruption to the unit that has been the biggest driver of the M's surge." -- Bradford Doolittle,
