Sport: MLB | Star Rating: 8.0 Evaluation: Loss (-912) - Final Total 1
Over 8 (-114) @ pinnacle

8* Over Dodgers/Mariners (4:10 ET): Though they’ve been held to just seven runs total over the L3 games (and LOST to Mariners 4-3 yday), you’ve got to like the Dodgers chances to “break out” offensive today. They will be facing embattled Seattle starter Marco Gonzales, who has an 8.22 ERA and 1.761 WHIP this year. Despite the lack of production at the plate the L3 games, Los Angeles is still averaging 5.5 runs per game and the addition of a DH (AL park) their lineup obviously becomes more potent. 

Jose Urias will start for the Dodgers today, hoping for a better effort than what he gave his last time out. Urias allowed five runs (four earned) in six innings against Colorado last Thursday, ironically way more than he allowed when he faced the Rockies at Coors Field earlier in the month. The Dodgers still won the game, 7-5, and the Over is now 11-1 in Urias’ last 12 starts. The fewest number of runs scored by the Dodgers in any Urias start during that time is four. They’ve AVERAGED 7.5 runs in those 12 games. 

Like I said earlier, Gonzales figures to struggle facing the NL’s highest scoring offense. He was better in his last start, but that was against Baltimore. The first two starts saw him allow 12 runs in 10 ⅓ IP. He’s also already allowed six home runs. Again, facing the already loaded Dodgers lineup plus a DH is a tough task. In his only previous start here at home, Gonzales gave up three home runs. The Dodgers’ lineup has homered in every game but three this season and all but one since the first two games. 8* Over Dodgers/Mariners


What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
