The Toronto Blue Jays will face the Seattle Mariners tonight (Blue Jays vs Mariners) in Major League Baseball action. The game will come from Seattle and the Mariners are very small favorites at -115. However, this game is almost a coin toss as the Jays are -105 in what will be the late game for the evening (10:10 PM ET).

Blue Jays vs Mariners: Pitching Matchup

The game will feature Toronto’s Yusei Kikuchi against Seattle’s Bryce Miller. Miller enters the game with a more impressive stat line than his counterpart. He has a 3.66 ERA and a WHIP of 0.97. The latter is incredibly impressive, especially since it’s based on a reasonable amount of innings. He has 64 innings pitched so far this season.

Miller’s best month was May and he regressed a little in June. In his latest outing, he pitched five shutout innings to pick up a win. In some ways, Miller is a tough read at this point because of the bad month in June and the fact that he has just one recent appearance. But Miller looks like the pitcher to back in this game. The time he spent on the DL after June may have served him very well in getting back to his best stuff.

Kikuchi has struggled badly in recent starts. He is 7-3 but July has been a bad month so far. He has a 6.43 ERA on month-to-date stats. That makes him really hard to back as the Jays head into Seattle.

Betting recommendation: take the Mariners

The home-and-away splits don’t depict a significant edge. The Jays have been playing a little bit better recently than Seattle but neither team is in a slump. Our recommendation is to go with the favored Mariners. Take them on the moneyline at -115 as they have the pitching-matchup edge in this contest.

Recommendation: take the Mariners at -115 with bet365 sportsbook.
