Los Angeles Angels (20-33) vs. Seattle Mariners (29-26)

The upcoming MLB matchup between the struggling Los Angeles Angels and the relatively steady Seattle Mariners is set to be an intriguing clash on the diamond. As the two teams prepare to face off at T-Mobile Park on May 31, 2024, at 10:10 PM ET, the Angels will look to improve their dismal record of 20-33, while the Mariners aim to extend their lead with a 29-26 standing. Broadcasted live on ATV+, this game is one to watch, with fans and bettors alike eager to see if the Angels can turn their fortune around or if the Mariners will hold their ground. For the latest MLB picks, this matchup provides several angles to consider, especially with the current form and historical performance of both teams.

The Los Angeles Angels finding themselves in a rather difficult period, with rather poor performance in the current fixtures – 1 win in the past 5 games, weakness both in offense and defense might be the reasons. As for the team batting average of .245, this team has made 230 runs from 444 hits this season, which while not spectacular is rather good. Their slugging percentage is .403, coupled with the average on base plus percentage of .307. The pitching side is equally as poor having an average of (4.64) and a WHIP of (1.32), meaning they are allowing too many opposition hitters on the bases. As it stands, their success on the road could present some value; they have gone 19-9 ATS in away games, so there’s potentially an exploitable edge.

The team with a slightly better record of 29-26 is the Seattle Mariners and they have a better distribution of the team strength. The hitting has been average at a .224 batting average, a little lower than Angels, but the strength here has been the pitching with 3.66 ERA and a splendid 1.09 WHIP in the league. The Mariners’ performance in this aspect is characterized by 61 home runs and a slugging average of .368. They have fared well especially when it comes to restricting opposition teams from taking walks, 133 times and controlling hits allowed, which is showcased in their .220 opponent batting average. Nevertheless, they record a poor return when it comes to spread betting, more so when they are playing at home; (13-16).

Jose Soriano (2-5, 3.61 ERA) vs. Bryan Woo (2-0, 1.66 ERA)

Jose Soriano stands with a 2-5 win-loss record for the season however he has a 3.61 ERA over 52.1 innings pitched. He got 51 strike out losses, and 23 strike out walks: it means he can do good, but he can also be bad. Of course, one of the key strengths of Soriano is the ability to strike out hitters and as in any pitching, statistical control could be a problem having a number of walks. This game will be very important for the Angels and its outcome depends on His’s performance, especially while facing the confident batters of the Mariners.

On the other hand, Bryan Woo has been great for the Mariners whenever he has featured in this season. Looking at the season statistics Woo has a record of 2-0 and an ERA of 1.66 with an average of 21.2 innings pitched, and a WHIP of 0.6 which indicates that Woo has excellent control and efficiency for a starter. His prowess of allowing very few base runners through giving out only 11 hits and 2 walks further boosts his pitching performance.
