Boston Red Sox at Seattle Mariners Preview

Boston Red Sox vs Seattle Mariners Predictions 8-01-16 & Odds, MLB Preview, Free Pick

The Red Sox trail Baltimore by 1 1/2 games for first place in the American League East but own a one-game lead over Detroit for the second AL wild card. The Red Sox capped a four-game split against the Los Angeles Angels on Sunday afternoon, scoring five times in the ninth inning for a 5-3 win at Anaheim. Seattle returns home from a 4-4 road trip that ended with them costing me a bet by blowing a 6-0 lead by giving up 3 runs in the 9th inning and then one more in the 12th.

Boston vs Seattle MLB Pick

The Red Sox have to win these games against weaker teams if they are going to stay in the playoff hunt. Boston has feasted on weaker pitching and they will have a chance to do that today. Paxton would have cost you over $500 if you had laid a bill on each of his starts this season. Rodriguez keeps winning because he keeps starting against bad pitchers. The same is true today. I am taking the Red Sox to pound a weak pitcher and a drained bullpen into submission. I will be betting 75% of my money on the Red Sox money line and 25% on a parlay of the Red Sox money line  and the over.

Red Sox vs Mariners Prediction:
Boston 8 – Seattle 4
