It’s hard for me to type this out because I’m so excited. It’s such a rare occurrence to have the Mariners playing in a game that matters for them in October. Sure, they’ve had a chance to play spoiler in some sort over the years, but for once, they are on the other side of it.
If the Mariners can win today, they will give themselves a shot at making the playoffs. Well, depending on how you feel about play-in games and the Wild Card game itself. But that’s a story for tomorrow. The Mariners are currently a game out, but a win by them and a loss by either the Red Sox or Yankees will put the Mariners into a tie for one of the Wild Card spots, extending their season another day.
Let’s take a look at some of the odds from today’s upcoming game, including the spread, over/under, as well as taking a look at who is on the mound to start for the Mariners and what their lineup is going to look like.

No surprise here because of who’s pitching for the Mariners tonight (more on that below), but the Mariners are favored in tonight’s game at -165 (Bet $165 to win $100) with the Angels at +152 (Bet $100 to win $152).
When it comes to the spread, the M’s are +120 at -1.5 (If you beat $100 and they win by two or more, you win $120), with the Angels sitting at -140 at +1.5 (If they lose by one or win, you win $100 on a $140 bet).
If all you are concerned with is the run total in the game, the over-under is set at 7.5. If you like the over, it’s -110 (Bet $110 to win $100) and the under is -110 (Bet $110 to win $100).
Mariners Pitcher Today: Tyler Anderson
You know, I’m completely okay with this. Yeah, there was a stretch in September where he was struggling a bit. Do you know what else he did? Had 25 or so straight starts where he went 5+, and then, for his last start, went to Servais and crew and told them to give me the ball. Not quite in the same way that Keyshawn Johnson did it back in the day, but he still wanted it, and to take command of the team.
Tyler Anderson did just that, throwing four great innings with just 46 pitches, 40 of which were strikes. If that’s not taking the bull by the horns and going after them, I don’t know what could be. That was on short rest, which explains the short outing. He is back to normal rest, and pending any trouble, he should be able to go 5-6 innings without issue.
Mariners Starting Lineup
Pretty solid lineup. The only thing that worries me is Moore in the nine-hole. He’s struggled all year both on the field and at the plate. Raleigh has the eighth spot, so at least we know that the catcher will be able to catch a ball, which will be a nice upgrade.
Mariners vs Angels Prediction Today
One game left. The Mariners have to win to have a chance to get into a playoff. Earlier in the week, I said that they would go 2-1 this series, winning late in the game on Sunday with a Kelenic go-ahead home run in the 8th inning. I’m sticking with that, and the Mariners are going to do their part today by winning their game against the Angels.
