Mariners vs Padres Betting Pick
This game will be played at Petco Park at 4:10 PM ET on Tuesday, July 5, 2022.
Why Bet The Mariners:
✅ Logan Gilbert has been the Mariners’ best starting pitcher so far this season. The 25-year-old righty is 9-3 with a sharp 2.66 ERA, 1.12 WHIP, and 92/26 K/BB ratio in 16 starts (94.2 innings pitched) in 2022. Gilbert has struggled a bit in his last two outings and still emerged victorious on both occasions. He’s yielded seven runs over his previous 11.2 frames of work, but Gilbert’s four-seamer and curveball still have a minus-11 run value combined.
✅ The Padres’ bullpen has slowed down a bit in the last ten days, posting a pedestrian 5.68 ERA and .311 BABIP across 25.1 innings of work. Mike Clevinger is building up his stamina following a couple of stints on the IL and COVID-19 list, so the Padres ‘pen should be busy Tuesday against the Mariners.
✅ San Diego’s offense has accounted for just 45 runs in the previous 13 outings while slashing a poor .222/.293/.344 with nine homers and 24 doubles across 433 at-bats. The Mariners haven’t impressed at the plate in their last 13 games, but they’ve still scored 55 runs on a .237/.322/.419 triple-slash.
The M’s were searching for their third straight win in Monday’s opener at Petco Park which has been excluded from the analysis. Seattle has gone 10-3 in its last 13 contests to improve to 39-42 on the season, so the Mariners’ playoff hopes are still alive.
Seattle’s bullpen has been outstanding in the last ten days and 29.2 frames of work. It has compiled a shiny 1.52 ERA, 2.98 FIP, .220 BABIP, and 11.5 K/9.
San Diego Padres
The Padres beat the LA Dodgers 4-2 this past Sunday to avoid a sweep in a four-game road series. They fell to 47-34 on the season, and the Padres have won only three of their previous ten games overall.
Mike Clevinger is 2-0 with a 2.79 ERA and 1.10 WHIP in six starts and one relief appearance in 2022. He’s tossed just 29 innings thus far. Last Wednesday, the 31-year-old righty needed 86 pitches to get through six scoreless innings in a 4-0 victory at the Arizona Diamondbacks. Clevinger yielded only one hit and a walk while punching out six.
