Blue Jays Mariners : Prediction for Pivotal Game 9/20

Updated: September 20, 2016

Blue Jays Mariners

Gigantic game is in the cards today as the Blue Jays Mariners series goes a long way in the determination of whom gets those AL Wild Card spots. Tuesday has come around and baseball is in the air here at The Gambling Forum.  Treat for a 10PM game tonight.  Toronto is attempting to salvage their west coast swing and hold onto that 2nd Wild Card spot. Seattle has been coming on very quickly but can not afford a second straight loss to the Jays in as many nights.  Where will the profit pour in from in this entertainment and value filled game this evening?

Blue Jays Mariners : Happ’s Tired Arm

Happ is already at his most innings pitched for one year in his career.  While he has not fallen off the cliff, his recent performances have not been of the lock down variety.  Tampa toyed with him getting him to use 85 pitches in just short of three innings of work.  He was very fortunate to escape with just three runs allowed.  Walks get him in trouble in this stretch because he does not have the fireballer stuff to punch out batters at will.  Now on this long west coast swing, attrition might be hitting the Jays.  They had taken a comfortable situation and now introduced an element of panic.  Only so long one can run on adrenaline.  Bats have tailed off and if Happ is helpless today then it might be a long night for the Jays.

Seattle’s Stand

Iwakuma has better stuff at home because SafeCo is a forgiving field for the type of mistakes he makes.  Seattle has come a very long way to dig themselves out of the hole.  They have to take these two games because then they can coast and travel to the down and out Twins. Only problem that is here deals with their home field advantage.  It will not be there because legions of Canadians are making the trip south of the border to root on their team.  When we watch the game tonight, distinct pockets of blue shirts will be seen in the stands.  Crowd will not be a factor here that it usually is for Seattle.

Odd that Seattle is a home dog where most of the factors go towards them this evening.  The small market movement has seen money coming in for the Jays.  This is the wrong direction.  Our Free Pick of the Day is for the Seattle Mariners ML to cash.  Good fortune in this home dog and we will see you next time here at The Gambling Forum.
