Seattle Mariners vs San Diego Padres 2/24/2023 Picks, Odds and Previews

MLB Spring Training games begin Friday, Feb. 24, with two Cactus League games. In the first game, Kansas City hosts Texas with the first pitch set for 3:05 p.m. EST. The San Diego Padres and Seattle Mariners game gets started at 3:10 p.m. at the Padres Spring Training home, the Peoria Sports Complex in Peoria Arizona. Seattle also made the playoffs as a Wild Card team, finishing second in the American League West at 90-72, 16 games behind the Houston Astros. The Mariners knocked out the Toronto Blue Jays in the Wild Card round 2-0, then got swept by Houston, 3-0, in the ALDS.

In the upcoming game on Friday, the Seattle Mariners will be facing off against the San Diego Padres for the first time this season. Last year, the two teams had a four-game series, and the Mariners won three of those matchups. Seattle’s starting pitcher for the game will be Robbie Ray, who did not pitch against the Padres last season. On the other hand, San Diego’s starter Nick Martinez did not face the Mariners either. In 2022, Ray had a 3.71 ERA and a 12-12 record, while Martinez went 4-4 with a 3.47 ERA in 49 appearances, including ten starts, for the Padres. The Mariners made headlines in the MLB when they acquired former All-Star Teoscar Hernandez from the Toronto Blue Jays in exchange for reliever Erik Swanson.

The Seattle Mariners struggled to cover the spread, only managing to do so once in their last five outings. However, the team has been quite successful on the road, covering the spread in 45 out of 80 away games. It’s also worth noting that in four out of their last five games, the total points scored went over the set line.

Seattle Mariners vs San Diego Padres 2/24/2023 Picks, Odds and Previews

Last year, the San Diego Padres qualified for the playoffs with an impressive 89-73 record, securing second place in the National League West, albeit 22 games behind division leaders, the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Padres then advanced to the National League Championship Series, but unfortunately suffered a 4-1 defeat to the Philadelphia Phillies. San Diego began their playoff journey by beating the New York Mets 2-1 in the Wild Card round, before winning three of four games against the Dodgers in the NL Division Series to secure their place in the NL Championship Series.

The San Diego Padres made a big splash in the offseason, signing free agent shortstop Xander Bogaerts to an enormous 11-year, $280 million deal, sending a message to the rest of the league. Bogaerts is expected to be in the lineup for the Padres’ first spring game against the Seattle Mariners, adding to a strong group that already includes Juan Soto, Manny Machado, and possibly Fernando Tatis if he’s healthy. On the other side, Julio Rodriguez has been a standout performer for the Mariners, but they’ve also added Teoscar Hernandez, Kolten Wong, and AJ Pollock to bolster their offense.

The San Diego Padres have failed to cover the spread in three of their five most recent matchups. When playing on the road, the Padres have a record of 42 wins and 39 losses against the spread. Additionally, the total score exceeded the betting line in two of San Diego’s last five games.

Seattle Mariners vs San Diego Padres. The MLB pick for this game is the San Diego Padres. As far as the starters go, Ray appears to have the advantage heading into this game. While Seattle’s offense has shown improvement, the Padres boast a formidable lineup, especially if their big hitters are in the game. Playing at home and favored by a small margin, we believe the Padres will come out on top. Our final score prediction is a close 6-4 victory for the San Diego Padres.
