Cincinnati Reds Betting Preview

The Reds ended their three-game win streak when they came up short against the Mariners in game one of this series. This battle resulted in a 9-3 blowout, where the Mariners were up 3-0 after the end of the first inning.

Hunter Greene (0-1) gets his shot on the mound to put this series back in their favor. He currently has an ERA at 4.86 and a WHIP at 1.20, which will need to be better in this matchup if they want any chance at success.

Their offense is led by Spencer Steer, who has a batting average at .321 and 18 RBIs so far. He also averages an on base percentage at .449 and a slugging percentage at .625, both of which are above averages for those respective categories.

They have a solid chance at victory if they continue to bat .244 and allow .234. However, they will need to widen this gap further if they want better opportunities for success.

Seattle Mariners Betting Preview

The Mariners snapped a two-game losing streak when they took care of business in game one of this series. Despite their current losing record, they are 3-2 in their previous five matchups.

They have a good chance at success if Logan Gilbert can control the first half of this game on the mound. He currently boasts a 2.66 ERA and a 0.84 WHIP, which is much more appealing than what Greene is averaging for the Reds.

Mitch Hangier has their offense pushing in the right direction. He leads with a batting average at .281 and 11 RBIs thus far into the season, which will need to improve from here. He also has an on base percentage at .375 and a slugging percentage at .500.

They have run into trouble a few times this season with poor offense. They are batting .210 and allowing their opponents to average .244. This dynamic will need to flip if they want any shot at success here and the rest of the season.
