Wednesday takes us to T-Mobile Park in Seattle, which was the site of the 2023 Major League Baseball All-Star game. This time around T-Mobile Park will host game three of a four-game series between the American League Central division, leading Minnesota Twins, and the home team, the Seattle Mariners.
Minnesota has been reaping the benefits of playing in the worst division in baseball so far this season. That is why they are barely hovering above .500 but still find themselves sitting in a playoff spot and on top of the American League Central division. However, Cleveland has been taking advantage of playing a weak Pittsburgh Pirates team, and they are hot on the heels of the Minnesota Twins coming into Wednesday's slate of Major League Baseball action. Minnesota has been somewhat successful throughout this current road trip, as they are coming off of a sweep of the Oakland Athletics. However, throughout the first two games against the Seattle Mariners, Minnesota hasn’t looked as solid as they did against Oakland. This is to be expected because the 2023 Athletics I have the potential to go down as the worst single-season team in the history of baseball.
Kenta Maeda is expected to take the mound for the Minnesota Twins in the third game of this four-game series on Wednesday evening. He isn’t having the best season up until this point as he comes into this game with only a pair of victories to his name and five losses. Minnesota has looked rough when he takes the mound for them, which puts them at a huge disadvantage for this game against Seattle on Wednesday night.

The Seattle Mariners have struggled throughout the season after being a playoff team at the end of last year. Over the past two seasons, they have one more than 90 games in each of those seasons and made one postseason appearance, which broke a two-decades-long playoff drought. However, if they don’t get things turned around quickly, they will find themselves sitting at home during the postseason once again, as they are currently on the outside looking in at the American League playoff race. They have had a sluggish start to the season and they will be hoping they can turn things around in the second half of the year, and it starts with a solid performance in this four-game series against the Minnesota Twins.
They pulled out a solid win in the opening game of the series against the Minnesota Twins. They followed up their victory with a letdown game on Tuesday as the twins put a crooked number on the board to pick up a victory over the Mariners to even up this series at one game apiece coming into game number three. Luis Castillo is expected to take the mound for the Seattle Mariners in this game, and he started off the season red hot, but he has been in a slump as of late. He comes into this game, one game below .500 with six victories and seven losses on the season. He will be looking to even up his record and lower his ERA with a quality performance against Minnesota here on Wednesday night.
Betting trends to consider in this matchup:
- Seattle is 25-21 after a loss this season
- Seattle is 26-23 at home this season
- Minnesota is 10-16 as an away underdog
With Luis Castillo taking the mound for the Seattle Mariners I think they have the pitching advantage in this game on Wednesday night. That is why I have to go with the Seattle Mariners to pick up a victory in the third game of the series against the Minnesota Twins to secure at least a split of this four-game series before heading into Thursday's finale. I expect Castillo’s performance to have a heavy impact on the outcome of this game and that is why I have the Mariners grabbing a comfortable victory over Minnesota.As always, get our VIP Pick Free Tonight by Clicking Here!
