MLB Picks and Predictions for Monday, June 9, 2014

Seattle Mariners vs. Tampa Bay Rays (1:10 PM ET)

Line: Seattle Mariners (+175) at Tampa Bay Rays (-205); total 7.5view all MLB lines

[sc:MLB240banner ]The Tampa Bay Rays have won only once in the last 13 games. On the other hand, the Seattle Mariners have won seven of eight with reliable offense and pitching. They hit .283 scoring 4.75 runs per game while limiting their opponents’ to hitting .207 and a 2.15 ERA over that stretch.

Writer’s Prediction: Seattle continues its hot streak by adding another win over the Rays.

Boston Red Sox vs. Baltimore Orioles (7:05 PM ET)

Line: Boston Red Sox (+114) at Baltimore Orioles (-124); total 9.0view all MLB lines

The Boston Red Sox will end a nine-game road trip with a three-game series with the Baltimore Orioles. The Red Sox have won only one of their six games on the road thus far. Starting for Boston will be Jake Peavy (1-3, 4.72 ERA), who has allowed 44 hits in 30 2/3 innings over his last five starts. Meanwhile, the Orioles are coming off a rough series against the Oakland Athletics, including being trounced 11-1 in their last game.

Writer’s Prediction: The Red Sox’ rough road trip continues with a loss to the Orioles.

Cleveland Indians vs. Texas Rangers (8:05 PM ET)

Line: Cleveland Indians (-105) at Texas Rangers (-105); total 10.0view all MLB lines

Donnie Murphy

In the American League, the Texas Rangers are second to the last team in pitching. This will come into play when they meet AL’s fifth-best hitting team, the Cleveland Indians. In a sick twist of fate, the already injury-laden Rangers team lost Mitch Moreland to ankle problems. The Rangers will slot in Donnie Murphy and his .220 average against the Indians in the fourth game of their series.

The Indians are red hot, having won nine of their last 10.

Writer’s Prediction: The Indians will use their trusty batting to take the fourth game from the Rangers.

New York Yankees vs. Kansas City Royals (8:10 PM ET)

Line: New York Yankees (+122) at Kansas City Royals (-132); total 8.0view all MLB lines

The Kansas City Royals are on the verge of climbing back to .500 with a third-straight win against the Yankees. However, the Royals are starting left-hander Jason Vargas, who has never beaten the Yankees. Vargas has gone 0-4 with a 6.75 ERA in seven starts and one relief effort against the Yankees.

Writer’s Prediction: The Yankees will split the series with the Royals with a win in the fourth game.

Oakland Athletics vs. L.A. Angels (10:05 PM ET)

Line: Oakland Athletics (+105) at L.A. Angels (-115); total 8.5view all MLB lines

In a series clash between the top two teams in AL West last week, the Oakland Athletics pulled further away from the Los Angeles Angels in a three-game sweep. Now returning the visit, circumstances seem to favor the A’s ahead of their three-game series in the Angels’ ballpark. Starting for the Angels is right-hander Garrett Richards, who has gone 0-3 with a 7.50 ERA in six starts—all losing efforts—against the A’s in his career.

Writer’s Prediction: The Oakland Athletics will take another win over the L.A. Angels.
