July 4, 2024

MLB action is fast approaching, with the Baltimore Orioles (55-31) looking for the series sweep against the Seattle Mariners (47-41) on Thursday, July 4th, at 4:10 PM ET. Despite the game being played at T-Mobile Park in Seattle, Washington, the Orioles are favorites to succeed with a -145 moneyline.

Baltimore Orioles Betting Preview

The Orioles are 4-1 over their last five games and have won two consecutive against the Mariners. They have averaged 3.20 runs a game and have allowed 3.80, with one outlier being an 11-2 loss to the Texas Rangers in their last series.

Corbin Burnes (9-3) (2.28 ERA, 1.03 WHIP) gets the starting position for pitcher in this matchup. With his ERA, he puts them in a good position compared to their team average of 3.40.

The offense thrives with Gunnar Henderson (26 homers, 58 RBIs) and Adley Rutschman (.288 batting average). Both will need another strong performance at the plate to help them stay ahead.

The Orioles separate themselves from the Mariners with their averages at the plate. They are averaging .255 on offense and allow just .224. This is the biggest threat to the Mariners, as the Orioles have the potential to run away with it.

Seattle Mariners Betting Preview

The Mariners have lost four consecutive games, two against the Orioles and two against the Minnesota Twins in their last series. Over their last five games, they are averaging 1.60 runs and giving up 3.60.

Having Bryce Miller (6-7) (3.88 ERA, 1.05 WHIP) on the mound should offer a solid chance to slow down the Orioles. But with their team ERA at 3.56, it will be tough for him to hold them down long without help from relief pitching.

Their offense is led by a few key players who must have a standout game for them to have a shot at winning. Julio Rodriguez leads with a batting average of .244, and Cal Raleigh leads with 15 homers and 51 RBIs.

The Mariners' batting average is a paltry .217, which seems generous compared to their offense lately. They keep opponents around .220 at the plate, but they must step it up on the offensive end. If they have a slow start, this could be a long game.
