It's been quite some time since Seattle experienced a successful season in MLB as they entered the 2016 campaign having not made the playoffs since 2001. That 2001 season was one Mariners fans will never forget as the team set the MLB record for wins in a season with 116. It was a tremendous regular season but the fact that they were ousted in five games by the Yankees in the ALCS still leaves a bitter taste in the mouths of Mariners fans everywhere.
Seattle did have a couple of 90+ win years right after that but they were never good enough to earn a playoff spot and the team is still searching for ways to get back to playing October baseball. A long run of futility like that typically means that Seattle Mariners odds are ones bettors have routinely been going against.

Bet On Seattle Mariners Games
After a decade of struggles (2003-2013), the Mariners owners decided to open up their chequebooks and pay for stars to make their team relevant again.
The big signing that off-season was bringing in former Yankees 2B Robinson Cano to spark a struggling offense and he's played very well since becoming a Mariner. The spending and roster tweaking didn't stop there though as Seattle has brought in other guys like OF Nelson Cruz and Leonys Martin from other organizations. Homegrown Kyle Seager has started to emerge as an All-Star in this league as well.
The future is much brighter than the recent past has been for the Mariners.
MLB bettors especially took notice in Cano's first season (2014) with the team as Seattle was one of the best moneyline bets on the road in MLB. The Mariners finished with a 46-35 SU record away from Safeco Field and earned their backers nearly 15 units away from home. Had Seattle just been able to be a better home team (41-40 SU) that season, their playoff drought would have definitely been snapped.
Looking ahead, this is definitely an organization that should be on MLB bettors radar as it looks like it's become a matter of “when” and not “if” that Seattle is back playing playoff baseball. The strong mix of established veterans and upcoming talent they've got on their roster makes this team a must-watch, and must-bet team the next few years.
