Although the Athletics split the opening series with the Rangers we are also aware that they have lost 4 of the last 5 games when starter Pomeranz steps on the mound. Unfortunately starter Walker who starts for the Mariners is untried, so with both teams likely being able to score some runs we are comfortable taking the over in the series opener.
