The Guardians vs Mariners match is a game between two teams that have seen a lot of each other this year. It is the fifth game between the two within the first two weeks of the MLB season. Also, Cleveland Guardians won the first series. However, the Mariners want to rebound from that defeat.
According to sports chats, the game is also a rematch between Aaron Civale and Logan Gilbert on the mound. Civale won their first meeting when he allowed two hits in seven innings. Will the pitchers dominate the game?
The baseball betting odds for the match are:
Cleveland Guardians vs Seattle Mariners Analysis and Predictions
The Mariners’ chances of making the playoffs this year have not been helped by their slow start. Since Robbie Ray was hurt, their offense hasn’t done anything.
Ty France is the lone Seattle Mariners batter with a hot bat. If Civale returns to being the pitcher he was in 2022, though, the rest of the offense may finally get going.
Baseball betting websites say the Guardians should be ready to pounce on Gilbert. The right-hander had a 3.20 ERA last season, but his average exit velocity and hard-hit rate were in the bottom 5 percent.
These factors account for his 4.11 xERA and 3.53 FIP, which are regression markers. He is bound to get smacked after his stellar performance in his first start against the Guardians.
That might not be the case since the Guardians sit in the middle of the pack in wOBA and wRC+. Also, they were terrible with their offense.
