The Seattle Mariners host the Los Angeles tonight for the first game in their five-game series. Can the Angels get back on track? Will Shohei Ohtani help them do that? Jason Radowitz answers.

Seattle Mariners vs. Los Angeles Angels Prediction: How Will Shohei Ohtani Perform in Seattle?

The Los Angeles Angels were a couple of outs away from getting a no-hit by Tyler Anderson. The no-hit bid was broken up by Shohei Ohtani, who will be pitching in tonight's game against the Mariners. The Angels are just 29-35 on the season after a disastrous last three weeks. However, the roster is still good enough that they can string together wins and find the postseason. It's still early, but the Angels need to do whatever they can to get back on track.

Will a series against Seattle help the Angels get back on track?

Here are our picks, predictions, and odds for Thursday’s game between the Seattle Mariners and Los Angeles Angels.

Seattle Mariners vs. Los Angeles Angels Prediction

The Los Angeles Angels will send out Shohei Ohtani for tonight's opening game against the Mariners.

Ohtani is 4-4 with a 3.64 ERA. In the last 30 days, he's earned 26.6% of strikeouts while walking just 6.4% of batters. In that same timeframe, however, Ohtani has allowed a .333 BABIP with just 37.1% of ground balls induced.

Still, Ohtani has limited line drives recently, giving up just 14.5% of line drives in the last 30 days on the mound.

The Mariners are hitting a lot of line drives against righties in the last 30 days with five batters hitting 23.9% of line drives or more in the last 30 days against righties. But also, five batters in the Mariners lineup are also striking out at least 22.4% of the time. So you get the best of both worlds with this Mariners lineup.

On the other hand, it'll be George Kirby on the mound for the Mariners. He has a 4.27 xFIP in the last 30 days but has earned 23.5% of strikeouts while limiting walks to 2.6%.

He's been good, limiting line drives while earning a high amount of grounders in the last 30 days. However, against righties, Kirby has allowed a .375 wOBA and ISO of .305 in his last 62 plate appearances.

There are a couple of righties that no pitcher wants to face. His name is Mike Trout. Trout has a .355 ISO and wOBA of .363 against righties in the last 30 days and should be able to hit for serious power against Kirby.

The same could be said for Ohtani, Jared Walsh, and Max Stassi, who all have elevated ISO and wOBA numbers against righties in the last 30 days.

Kirby is also allowing a .173 ISO to lefties, which is slightly worse than the average.

Therefore, I'm going to count on Ohtani to limit line drives and earn a solid amount of strikeouts. I'm also going to count on the meat of the Angels in order to do some damage against Kirby.

Give me the Angels on the moneyline.
