Nover’s View: A’s-Mariners Free Monday Play

On September 27, 2021, in Free Picks, MLB, by Stephen

Mariners minus $1.14 hosting A’s

It still surprises me how the Mariners remain undervalued by the oddsmaker.

This is a very reasonable price to get involved with the Mariners, who are 42-33 at home and 8-2 in their last 10 overall games.

The A’s are going with Cole Irvin, a bottom-of-the-rotation type starter who has given up 22 runs in 24 innings during his last five road starts. Irvin is 0-4 lifetime against the Mariners with a 7.56 ERA and 2.16 WHIP spanning 16 2/3 innings.

Seattle starter Chris Flexen loves to pitch at T-Mobile Park. He’s 6-5 with a 3.09 ERA and 1.14 ratio there this season. Career-wise, Flexen has a 3.24 ERA and 1.12 ratio against Oakland in 25 innings. Flexen is backed by a very underrated bullpen. The A’s have scored 3 runs or fewer in six of their last nine games.

I am coming off a 9-2 football weekend. My Monday card is headed by my Eagles-Cowboys play. If you are interested in my sports service please email me at, or message me via Twitter. Thanks and best of luck!
