Odds, picks & predictions
Run Line: Mariners -1.5 (+135)
Run total: 8.5
Moneyline odds: Mariners -140, Rangers +120
Moneyline pick: Mariners -140
Runs could be hard to come by in this spot based on how well Flexen is throwing and Seattle’s poor season-long numbers at the plate. Flexen has been far more reliable than Otto this season, especially recently. He has not allowed more than 3 runs in a start since May 21, a span of 10 starts.
Player prop pick: Glenn Otto Over 4.5 strikeouts (+120)
The Rangers starter has a chance to go fairly deep into this game going up against a Mariners offense that has not done all that well this season. Otto has just a 6.9 K/9 to this point of the season, but the Mariners strike out 8.6 times per game.
