Los Angeles Angels vs Seattle Mariners 4/5/2023 Expert Picks, Tips and Previews

The Los Angeles Angels will take on the Seattle Mariners in a National League West division matchup at T-Mobile Park on Wednesday. The Angels are off to a hot start with a record of 3-1, while the Mariners are struggling at 1-4. The Angels dominated the series opener with a comfortable 7-3 victory. The Angels’ ace, Shohei Ohtani, will be on the mound, widely regarded as the best pitcher in the league. Ohtani was sensational in his last start, throwing six innings of two-hit baseball and striking out an impressive 10 batters.

The Mariners’ offense has been struggling and may struggle against Ohtani. They only scored in the ninth inning in Tuesday’s game, with only Taylor Ward and Hunter Renfroe managing to get multiple hits. The Angels’ team batting average of .270 ranks ninth in the league, and they’ll face a Seattle pitching staff that ranks tenth with a 3.52 ERA. Ohtani is looking to build on his career-best pitching numbers from last season after leading Japan to victory in the World Baseball Classic this spring.

  • The total went OVER in 4 of the LA Angels’ last 6 games on the road against Seattle.
  • The Los Angeles Angels are 9-2 SU in their last 11 games played in April.
  • The total stayed UNDER in 4 of the LA Angels’ last 5 games as the favorite.

Los Angeles Angels vs Seattle Mariners 4/5/2023 Expert Picks, Tips and Previews

The Seattle Mariners have been stuck in a back-and-forth pattern of winning and losing, but they managed to break the cycle with a resounding 11-2 win over their opponents on Tuesday. Although they started the season with a solid 3-0 victory on Opening Day, they then proceeded to drop their next four games, struggling to put up more than five runs in any of those outings. They even suffered a shutout loss last Saturday and, although they managed to take a 2-1 lead in their game against the Los Angeles team, they ultimately gave up six of the next seven runs.

Despite their recent struggles, the Mariners were able to turn things around in their latest game, thanks to an explosive offensive performance. They put up a whopping 11 runs on 13 hits, with each of their top six players recording multiple hits. Both Teoscar Hernandez and A.J. Pollock hit two homers each, contributing significantly to the team’s success.

Looking ahead to their next game, the Mariners will be starting pitcher Chris Flexen in place of the injured Robbie Ray, who has been placed on the 15-day injured list due to a Grade 1 flexor strain. Flexen pitched four innings of one-run baseball in relief of Ray last Friday, so he should be well-prepared for his upcoming start. While he may not be a dominant strikeout pitcher, he was effective in his role last season, with an 8-9 record and a 3.73 ERA across 33 appearances (22 starts). The Mariners will be relying on Flexen to pitch well and rely on their solid defense to get them through their upcoming games.

  • The total went OVER in 9 of Seattle’s last 11 over the Angels.
  • The Seattle Mariners are 2-5 SU in their last 7 games at home.
  • The total hung OVER in 4 of the Mariners’ last 6 games at home against the Angels.

Los Angeles Angels vs Seattle Mariners. The MLB pick for this game is the Los Angeles Angels. It would be a risky move to bet against Ohtani, especially given the favorable line against a replacement pitcher. While Seattle was able to put up a decent number of runs in Tuesday’s game, they face a daunting challenge on Wednesday in the form of Ohtani, one of the league’s top pitchers. He has showcased his exceptional skills in past events such as the World Baseball Classic and proved his worth during his Opening Day start against Oakland. With his best pitching stats from last season under his belt, Ohtani is eager to lead his team to victory in the upcoming game.

Meanwhile, Seattle’s decision to add Flexen to the roster is simply due to Ray’s unfortunate injury. Flexen’s strategy heavily relies on his defense to make outs, which may not always be reliable. As for the predicted outcome, it’s likely that the LA Angels will triumph over Seattle with a score of 6-4.
