Seattle Mariners vs. Los Angeles Angels Pick – MLB June 24, 2022

The Seattle Mariners and Los Angeles have a three-game rematch at Angel Stadium this weekend. They were at T-Mobile Park last weekend in Seattle, with the Angels winning two of three games.

Michael Lorenzen started the only loss for the Angels in the series opener. The next two days for all Angels, as they pulled away for a 3-0 and 4-0 win behind strong starts from Jose Suarez and Kenny Rosenberg.

Since then, the Angels lost two of three games against the Kansas City Royals at home. They were on a seven-game road trip before going home to lose to the Royals.

They are coming off a strong win, and you guessed it, Shohei Ohtani had to come to the rescue to prevent another losing streak. Ohtani went 8 innings with just 2 hits and 2 walked yielded.

Daniel Lynch had a solid game versus an underachieving Angels’ offense, but the bullpen couldn’t hold for the Royals. They weren’t scoring with Ohtani dealing anyway.

The Angels are a disappointing 34-38 going into Friday night.

If you look at their record and nothing else, you’d see just the same old Angels. This time, though, they were competitive to open this season and then collapsed on a 14-game skid.

There are no excuses with Mike Trout and Ohtani in the lineup most of this season. Trout missed a brief minute, but has largely been active and doing his best to carry the load with Ohtani.

Chris Flexen and Lorenzen will receive some work on Friday night. They are tabbed as the starters to get this series underway. Head below for our free Mariners vs. Angels pick on June 24, 2022.

Mariners vs. Angels Prediction:

Michael Lorenzen struggled to get outs against the Mariners last weekend. The Mariners had him from the start, as Lorenzen was responsible for 7 earned runs in 5 innings.

The Mariners are hitting .309 with 8 RBIs in 39 at-bats against Lorenzen. There are four hitters in the Mariners lineup hitting better than .500.

Overall, Lorenzen has an ERA of 4.15 and a 1.20 WHIP across 65 innings.

He’s going into Friday night with an ERA of 6.88 and a 1.59 WHIP in his previous three attempts. The pitching staff has traditionally been underachievers, but they’ve been fine enough to give this overrated offense a chance.

The Angels are 20th in the major leagues with a .238 batting average and 4.33 runs per 9 innings. That’s not up to par for a team that is expected to do a lot more.

The Angels are good in spurts, but they rely too heavily on Trout and Ohtani to have big nights. Anthony Rendon has been out, though the offense was too up and down then as well.

The pitching has been solid for the Mariners, but not from who was expected to be the ace.

Robbie Ray is looking to sort things out while the rest of the rotation has been rather rock solid. The Mariners are eighth in the major leagues with 4.11 runs allowed per 9 innings.

Seattle Mariners vs. LA Angels Betting Trends:

Mariners

  • Record (Last 10): 5-5
  • 4-0 overall in their previous four games on the road
  • 4-0 overall in their previous four games versus a right-handed starter
  • 19-8 overall in their previous 27 games on a Friday
  • 5-2 overall in their previous seven games at Anaheim
  • UNDER is 4-1 in their previous five games versus the Angels

Angels

  • Record (Last 10): 5-5
  • 4-1 overall in their previous five games versus the AL West
  • 2-10 overall in their previous 12 games after a day off
  • 1-7 overall in their previous eight first game of a series
  • 3-12 overall in their previous 15 games at home
  • 1-7 overall in their previous eight games after scoring 5 or more runs

  • Chris Flexen has been fine for the Mariners, with a 4.23 ERA and 1.42 WHIP. He’s going into this one with an ERA of 4.62 and a 1.49 WHIP in 37 innings of work.

    Flexen held up well against the Angels last week.

    Flexen was in good form, as he went 5.1 innings with 2 earned runs allowed. If he can do the same tonight, the Mariners should be within striking distance.

    Flexen doesn’t necessarily have the advantage over Lorenzen, but neither does the Angels’ hurler. This looks like a fairly even matchup on the mound.

    Through their last five games, the Angles are hitting .196 with 3.42 runs per 9 innings. This is after ending their losing streak and they’re still wildly inconsistent at the plate.

    I’m not interested in laying -155 on the Angels and there appears to be some good value on the other side. I will take my chances on the Mariners at +130 to win on the moneyline.
