Seattle (Paxton) -140 at Chicago (Ranaudo) O/U 9.5 
Recommendation: Seattle

The Chicago White Sox host the Seattle Mariners tonight for the opener of a four-game series. A couple key metrics point to the M’s snapping their two-game skid vs. a struggling pitcher for the White Sox. Anthony Ranaudo will be making his third start since being acquired from Texas and first since escaping with a no decision at Cleveland on Aug. 17 -- five runs and eight hits allowed in four innings. The 26-year-old native of New Jersey has yielded eight runs and 10 hits, including four homers, over 10.2 innings in his two outings with Chicago. He will be opposing James Paxton, the hard throwing Canadian lefty who is making his first start coming off the disabled list. He had a promising start with three strikeouts in three innings for Triple-A Tacoma on Saturday. Reports stated that Paxton's command and velocity were good. Paxton is someone with a ton of upside but over the course of a full season, will lose his mechanics and thus struggle. But when he's on, the stuff is as good as any lefty starter in the game. Prior to a quick stint on the DL, Paxton put together four starts in which he allowed only five earned runs and flashed an impressive 27-3 K-to-BB ratio. Note that the Mariners will also have an edge in the late innings as the White Sox bullpen grades out as one of the worst in the American League. Plenty of edges here to warrant the road chalk.
