Rays-Mariners : How to Watch, Stream & Bet Apple TV's 'Friday Night Baseball'

The Seattle Mariners are struggling and have lost four straight games, but will look to get back on track tonight when they host the Tampa Bay Rays. The Rays have won three of four games against the Mariners this season and that should bode well for them again in Game 2 of their four-game series tonight. After a surprisingly hot start, the Mariners have since posted a 2-8 record over their last ten.

The Mariners have struggled of late, but they do have their best starting pitcher this season on the mound tonight. That should give the Mariners an edge in this game and the value you’re getting on the run line with Seattle may be too good to pass up tonight.
