Rangers vs. Mariners Offense Outlook

Corey Seager has been the Rangers’ top power threat this season, as his 14 home runs are 7th in the league and the most on the team. He comes into the game on a bit of a hot streak, going 1/3 with a home run and three RBIs in his most recent game. Adolis Garcia has also been a key power bat for the Rangers, as he has 13 homers and 40 RBIs, which is 12th in the league.

As a team, the Rangers are averaging 4.3 runs per game, which is 16th in the league. Their team batting average of .241 is 12th in the league, and they have the 15th best slugging percentage in the league. However, their collective on-base percentage of .310 is just 13th in the league.

So far this season, the Mariners offense is averaging just 3.8 runs per game, which is 27th in the league. They have been even worse at home, putting up only 3.7 runs per contest. As a team, they are batting just .220, and their on-base percentage of .298 is also near the bottom of the league. One positive for the Mariners is that they are 6th in the league in home runs, but they will need to find a way to string together more hits if they are going to improve their offensive numbers.

Julio Rodriguez has been one of the Mariners’ top power threats this season, as his six home runs are 3rd on the team and 15th in the league. He comes into the game with two homers in his last nine games while going 9/35 overall. Cal Raleigh is the team’s home run leader with 12, but he is batting just .211 for the season. Mitch Garver is also batting below the Mendoza line at just .173.

Free Rangers vs. Mariners MLB Pick

Luis Castillo is coming off his worst start of the season, having given up five runs vs. the Royals on June 6th, but is still putting together a great season so far. On the other side, Andrew Heaney has been solid for the Rangers. With both offenses struggling of late, I’m looking at the total in this one, and I am taking the under. Look for this to be a tight low scoring game that could end up being decided in the 9th or extras. Note: If you’re betting on baseball, it’s IMPERATIVE that you’re betting dime lines!
