Los Angeles Angels at Seattle Mariners Prediction

Heading into Saturday night’s showdown between Los Angeles and Seattle, look for both offenses to struggle at the plate, as George Kirby and Reid Detmers have each put together strong seasons. Detmers comes into the game with a WHIP of just 1.05 and racked up 12 K’s in his last outings. I see this playing out as a low-scoring game and recommend taking the under.
