Stephen Nover's MLB Game of the Week
LA Angels vs. Seattle,
04/01/2019 22:10 EDT,
Score: 3 - 6
Total: -115/+8½ Over
The Mariners have gone Over the total in five of their six games this season. Seattle has a very underrated offense. The Mariners are averaging eight runs a game. However, the Mariners have a very unsettled bullpen with no reliable closer. Seattle is giving up 5.8 runs per game.
The Mariners should keep their hot bats going against Chris Stratton, who had a 4.63 ERA with the Giants last season and wasn't very effective.
The Angels should get their share of runs facing Felix Hernandez, who hasn't won since June 30 of last season. If Hernandez wasn't "King Felix" he wouldn't even be in a starting rotation. Too much wear and tear has reduced Hernandez to someone who shouldn't be in a big league starting rotation. He is 0-8 with a 6.34 ERA in his last 11 starts.
