MLB Opening Day for the 2021 season is only a few weeks away. After a shortened 2020 season, all 30 teams are starting with zero wins and the singular goal of winning the World Series. The Seattle Mariners will be one of those teams looking to take a significant leap this season.
The Mariners finished last season with a record of 27-33 and third place in the AL West. We will be taking a look at their win total for this season and discussing if they will be going over or under using odds from DraftKings Sportsbook.
Seattle Mariners Over 72.5 wins (-112)
Last season, the Mariners finished five games behind the Toronto Blue Jays for the second wild card spot in the American League, which isn’t bad considering it was a shortened 2020 season.
This season, Seattle hopes that reigning AL Rookie of the Year award winner Kyle Lewis can take this offense to another level. His development along with Evan White, and J.P. Crawford will play major roles in the team’s success. If the offense struggles, the Mariners do have a viable starting rotation which features James Paxton, Justin Dunn, Justus Sheffield, Marco Gonzales, and Yusei Kikuchi. Outside of the 2019 season, where they had a record of 68-94, the Mariners had five-straight seasons dating back to 2014 over 72.5 wins.
