Seattle at Tampa Bay Preview The Dog Days of Summer In Tampa

League: MLB
By: Rob Vinciletti Published on: 08/13/2013

In This piece we will look at the Series opening game between the Seattle Mariners and the Tampa Bay Rays and have a look at a Powerful League Wide System and Review all the Pertinent statistical Indicators pertaining to this matchup.
 
 
 
On Tuesday the Seattle Mariners will Head Down to Tampa Bay to Take on the Rays. Tampa is back home off a horrendous road trip which saw them lose all 5 games. Now they will look to get healthy against a medicore Seattle team that comes in off a home shutout win over an equally inept Milwaukee team that was shut down by Seattle Ace Felix Hernandez. That win sets the Mariners up in some negative indictors for this game. As a team the Mariners have lost 12 straight as a road dog of +140 or higher when coming off a home win, and 10 of those 12 losses were by more than 1 run. There is also a Solid League wide system as seen below that applies in this game. We want to play on home favorites like Tampa that are -140 or higher and coming in off a road loss, if they scored 2 or less runs and had 4 or less hits in the loss, vs an opponent like Seattle that scored 4 or less runs in their last game if the posted total in this game is 8 or less. These home teams are a solid 27-5 if we stop right there. However, if we insist our home team is favored at -200 or more that 27-5 System shoots to 6-0 and the average win is by 5.5 runs per game. So its easy to see why we will recommend a run line play on Tampa Bay at -1.5 runs tonight. The Rays are 17-3 of late vs teams under .500 and have won all 3 times as a home favorite of -200 or higher. In home games against left handed pitchers Tampa has won 7 of the last 9. Seattle has dropped 7 of the last 10 when they are off a shut out win and they are hitting just .212 the past week. The Mariners have Lefty E. Ramirez making the start and he has an elevated 7.25 era. He will oppose Hard throwing Tampa Right C. Archer who has a solid 2.37 home era. Based on the Power system and the Indicators mentioned we will recommend a run line play on Tampa Bay.
