Mariners vs Red Sox MLB Betting Predictions

Mariners vs Red Sox Week 4
Mariners vs Red Sox betting predictions MLB

In game 2 of a 4 game set, the Mariners are in Beantown USA to take on the Sox. Seattle will start LHP Yusei Kikuchi (0-0) against Boston LHP Martin Perez (0-1). Seattle is ½ game out of first in the AL West and Boston is tops in the AL East. This should be a fun one to watch and look for the bullpens to decide the winner. I pick the Red Sox to win.

Mariners vs Red Sox Betting Odds

There is no place like first place and 1st in the AL East is where Red Sox manager Ron Roenicke has his team as Friday the Sox host Seattle at Fenway in game 2 of a 4 game weekend series.

Speaking of 1st, the Sox lead the majors in several offensive categories, 1st in BA .285, 1st in OBP .345, 1st in Slugging .470 and the Red Sox have scored a league leading 103 runs as of Thursday – good info to have if you’re looking for baseball betting sites.

Roenicke will start lefty Martin Perez Friday. At 0-1 on the season Perez has been unimpressive with a 5.93 ERA so far in his 3 starts. Fortunately for the Sox and Roenicke his bullpen has been stellar so far with a 2.86 ERA and if he can bring in his closer, Matt Barnes has 3 saves, with an outstanding .56 WHIP in ‘21.

As mentioned, the Red Sox real success has come on offense. LF/DH J.D Martinez leads the majors with 20 RBI and is 3rd in MLB with a 1.177 OPS. Superstar shortstop Xander Bogaerts has a .429 OBP and leads MLB shortstops slugging .585. The Sox 3B Rafel Devers has added timely hitting (as has the rest of the Boston team) and has 16 RBI.

Seattle, who is ½ game out of first in the AL West behind Oakland, is looking to get to the postseason for the first time since ‘01 when they set a MLB record winning 116 games. Scott Servais now in his 6th season with the Ms will call on LHP Yusei Kikuchi who is 0-0 in his 3 starts in with 19 IP and a 4.74 ERA in ‘21. If you’re looking how to bet on MLB in NJ, like the Red Sox, the secret for the Mariners so far has been its bullpen with a 2.69 ERA.

The Mariners have won 8 of 11 and are 5-2 as of Thursday on the road in ‘21. Third Baseman Ty France leads the team with a .922 OPS and is hitting .303. RF Mitch Haniger leads the Ms slugging .575 with 14 RBI.

With each team going with shaky lefty starters in this one, the game will likely come down to how the bullpens match up vs the offenses. I think the Red Sox should have the upper hand here and even though the Ms pen is solid, the offensive output the Sox have generated should be good enough for them to outscore Seattle. I expect this one to end up with the Sox knocking in a few late runs and coming up with a win. I pick the Red Sox to win at home against the Mariners.
