Seattle vs. Oakland, 04/04/2013 15:35
Money Line: +137 Seattle
Thursday's Free MLB Pick: Seattle Mariners +137
The Mariners have taken two of three against the A's in this four game series and are showing some great value as a pretty big underdog. Seattle will send out youngster Brandon Maurer, who will be making his big league debut. Maurer was dominant in spring training. He went 3-1 with a 1.50 ERA over seven games, while striking out 25 batters in 24 innings. Oakland will counter with A.J. Griffin, who went 7-1 with a 3.06 ERA over 15 starts last year. However, Griffin struggled late with a 7.27 ERA in his last four starts of 2012 and has not looked good in spring ball, going just 2-2 with a 5.40 ERA in five starts. This isn't one of my strongest plays in the MLB today, but there's certainly enough value here that it's worth a small wager. BET THE MARINERS!
