Los Angeles Dodgers @ Seattle Mariners Tips 


The Los Angeles Dodgers take on the Seattle Mariners in the first of two consecutive MLB regular-season games on Wednesday, May 12. Both of these teams are currently 3rd in their respective divisions, and both have identical records. Both teams are also in need of a win; the Dodgers have lost 5 of their last 6 games going into this match, while the Mariners have lost 3 of their last 4. 

The LA Dodgers are the reigning World Series Champions, and started this season as big favorites to retain their crown. However, after a strong start they have seriously gone off the boil, and are now 2-8 in their last ten games. The Dodgers topped National League West Division until recently, but their loss of form has seen them slip to third. 

The Seattle Mariners compete in the American League and are third in their West Division. Like the Dodgers, the Mariners have an overall 18-17 record, although they are 5-5 in their last ten games. After a decent start, Seattle have won just one series out of their last five. 

Nevertheless, I’m backing the Mariners to defeat the Dodgers based purely off the fact that Seattle are slightly more consistent than Los Angeles right now, and have won more games recently.

  • Dodgers 3rd in NL West Division
  • Dodgers 18-17 this season
  • Mariners 3rd in AL West Division
  • Mariners 18-17 this season

Head to Head 


The Seattle Mariners and the LA Dodgers have played each other only nine times during the past four seasons, with the score at 6-3 to the Dodgers. In 2020 they met four times (3-1 Dodgers), and they didn’t play each other at all in 2019. In 2018 the Mariners and the Dodgers played only one three-game series, which LA won 2-1. This year they have faced each other twice, with the score tied at 1-1. Their most recent meeting took place in April, with the LA Dodgers winning 1-0.

LA Dodgers Form


The Los Angeles Dodgers season seemingly turned from the moment they lost 5-2 to the Sand Diego Padres on April 18, having already secured the series 2-1. The Dodgers had won eight matches in a row, and lost just once in 14 games, an unusually good run in MLB. Maybe the way they lost that match to the Padres exposed a cavalier attitude toward throwing away games they deemed irrelevant.

Whatever their reasoning, the result has been nothing short of catastrophic; in their 20 subsequent games they are 5-15, with no series wins. In their fixtures this month, the Dodgers were hammered 3-1 in their series with the Milwaukee Brewers, beaten 3-0 by the Chicago Cubs in their series, and most recently 2-1 by city rivals the LA Angels. Their only triumph was winning their second game against the Angels 14-11. Should the Dodgers lose these next two games against Seattle, it will be surely time for crisis talks. 

Seattle Mariners Form


While there is pressure for the Mariners to succeed, it’s a different kind of pressure to what the Dodgers are facing. Seattle are the holders of three rather dubious records which are; going 30 out of 44 seasons with a losing record, suffering the longest playoff drought in all four major North American professional sports (having not made the playoffs since 2001), and being the only team in MLB who are never played in a World Series.

The Mariners finished third in the AL West Division last season, so right now they are on schedule to repeat that achievement. The Mariners and not a bad team; the San Francisco Giants lead the West Division right now, and Seattle defeated them 2-1 in their opening series of the season. They also scored series wins over the Minnesota Twins, the Baltimore Orioles, the LA Angels and drew 2-2 with the Boston Red Sox. They lost their last series to the Texas Rangers 2-1, going down 10-2 in the third game on Sunday.

Verdict

Both the LA Dodgers and the Seattle Mariners are sitting third in their respective divisions, and both currently hold 18-17 records. However, while the Mariners have remained competitive in recent matches and are 5-5 in their last 10 games, the Dodgers have gone into complete freefall, have gone 5-15 since mid-April, and are 2-8 in their last ten.
 
Despite the fact that the Dodgers are the reigning World Series winners, and the Mariners are chronic underachievers, I’m backing Seattle to defeat Los Angeles on Wednesday. This game will feature around 10 runs in total, with the scoreline something like 6-4 or even 7-3 to the Mariners.
