The New York Yankees attempt to extend their winning streak to six games when they visit the Seattle Mariners for the finale of their three-game series on Wednesday (9:40 p.m. ET). New York (34-23) endured a three-game skid before winning the final two contests of its three-game set against San Diego at home last weekend and taking the first two at Seattle. The Yankees' offense has been firing on all cylinders as the team has scored 10 runs in each of its last three outings. On Wednesday, New York's Clarke Schmidt (2-5, 5.58 ERA) takes the mound opposite Seattle's George Kirby (5-4, 3.43). The Mariners are -140 favorites (risk $140 to win $100) in the latest MLB odds from Caesars Sportsbook, while the Yankees are +118 underdogs. The over/under for total runs scored is 7.5.
The game is one of seven on the MLB schedule for Wednesday evening. Elsewhere in the majors, the Cincinnati Reds (+140) aim to match a season high with their fifth consecutive victory when they visit the Boston Red Sox and the Arizona Diamondbacks (-165) attempt to post their fourth win in a row when they host the Colorado Rockies.
