Betting Odds: Mariners (-155) - Over/Under (7.5)

Pick: Over 7.5 Runs (-120)

Monday night will mark the opening game of a three game series between the Cincinnati Reds and the Seattle Mariners. Both of these teams came into the 2024 Major League Baseball season with expectations of making a playoff appearance at the end of the year. Coming out of the gate, these teams have had different seasons as one of them has lived up to the expectations, and the other has arguably been underwhelming throughout the first few weeks of the season. Now they will cross paths for the first time this season in the Pacific Northwest. The winner of this game will look to get the upper hand heading into the final two games of the series later this week. 

The Cincinnati Reds come into this game with nine victories through their first 15 games of the season. They’ve gotten the job done with solid hitting and respectable pitching and they will look to keep the momentum rolling coming into this game on Monday night in Seattle. Cincinnati is a team that came into the season with plenty of expectations after overachieving with a group of young players last year. They were expected to be in a rebuilding phase last season, but they ended up pushing for the postseason all the way to the end, and now anything less than a postseason appearance would be considered a failure. 

Cincinnati is coming off of a series sweep against the Chicago White Sox and they will remain on the road against the American League in this series as well. They have won three games in a row, and they are currently sitting in the middle of the division in the National League Central and they look to climb up the standings with another victory here on Monday night. Cincinnati had plenty of hot hitting throughout their series with Chicago and now they will look to replicate that performance in this series against Seattle.

Seattle came into the year with plenty of expectations. However, they have been a little bit underwhelming throughout their first 16 games of the season. They come into this game four games below the .500 mark as they have picked up 10 losses through their first 16 games. They will look to get back on track with a much-needed victory here at home on Monday night against Cincinnati. Seattle has plenty of talent on their roster and they certainly have enough to compete as they’ve shown in previous seasons and they will just need to get things going in the right direction and pick up some momentum. 

Their lineup has the ability to put up a barrage of runs each and every night and that is something they will look to do here on Monday night against the Cincinnati Reds. As they look to open up this series against Cincinnati with a victory here at home. They are coming off of a series loss of Chicago and that is something they will look to fix against Cincinnati. Jeff Kirby will get the start for Seattle in this one while Frankie Montas will be on the hill for Cincinnati. Both of these starting pitchers have struggled throughout the early part of the season so you can expect plenty of runs to be scored in this game on Monday night. 

Betting trends to consider in this matchup:

- The over is 11-4 in Reds games this season

- Cincinnati is averaging six runs per game 

- Seattle is allowing 4.5 runs per game 

With two of the best offenses and all of baseball, getting ready to face off here on Monday night, I look for this one to be high scoring and back-and-forth throughout the contest. That is why I look for this game to go over. The total amount of runs that the line is set at is currently 7 1/2 half. I look for both of these teams to put up three or more runs throughout this game on Monday night in Seattle. They will have the advantage of playing a hitters like T-Mobile Park and the two starting pitchers in this game have been giving up runs at a fast pace throughout the early part of the season.
