The game on Monday between the Seattle Mariners and Toronto Blue Jays holds a promising possibility for bettors.

The Mariners are coming off an 8-7 victory Sunday over the Mets in New York, winning the three-game series.

This provides momentum as the team flies to Canada to take on the Blue Jays in the first game of a three-game series. Monday’s game is set to start at 7:07 p.m. ET at the Rogers Centre in Toronto. 

Overall this season, the Mariners are 16-19. The team has struggled to a 7-12 road record on the moneyline, averaging a +118 underdog wager, losing 3.65 units for a -19% return-on-investment (ROI).

The Blue Jays have underperformed this season, sporting an 18-16 record, making 0.35 units for 1.05% ROI. In home games, the Jays’ record is just 10-6.

Take The Mariners On The Road In Toronto

Toronto will hand the ball to left-handed pitcher Yusei Kikuchi, a former Mariner. He has not been consistent and has struggled with control in six starts this season, with 17 walks and just 27 strikeouts in 26 innings of work.

The Mariners will have right-handed Chris Flexen on the mound. Flexen has struggled to a 1-5 record, but he has a decent 4.24 ERA, spanning 6 starts and 34 innings of work. 

Flexen is not going to dominate or overwhelm any MLB batting order, but he knows how to get batters out with pitch movement and working the corners of the strike zone.

Over the last two seasons, Seattle has been a solid money-making 55-43 on the moneyline when taking on an opponent with a winning record. 

WIth this in mind, I am going to bet on the Seattle Mariners on the moneyline, currently +145 as offered at BetMGM Sportsbook.
