Preview

The Houston Astros and the Seattle Mariners will play the 2nd game of the series at the Minute Maid Park on Tuesday night. The Mariners took the win 7-4 on Monday to take the lead 1-0 on the series.

Seattle Mariners

The Mariners get here with a 25-30 record and have won 4 of their last 5 games. The team is averaging 4 runs per game and allowing 4 runs. Ty France leads with 37 RBI and 8 home runs and batting for .332 avg.

Logan Gilbert leads the team with 5 wins and pitching for a 2.22 ERA and 67 strikeouts.

Probable Pitcher:  Chris Flexen (2-6, 4.55 ERA)

Flexen will be on the mound in the 2nd game of the series for the Mariners. Flexen allowed 3 runs on 6 hits and 1 walk across 5 innings pitched against the Orioles last Thursday. He did not factor into the decision. In his last 3 starts against the Astros he has a 2.50 ERA and 11 strikeouts across 18 innings pitched.

Houston Astros

The Astros get here with a 35-20 record and have won 6 of their last 8 games. The team is averaging 4 runs per game and are allowing 3.2 runs. Yordan Alvarez leads the team batting for .288 avg with 16 home runs and 34 RBI.

Justin Verlander leads the pitching staff with a 2.23 ERA, 61 strikeouts and 6 wins recorded for the Astros..

Probable Pitcher:  Justin Verlander (6-2, 2.23 ERA)

Javier will be on the mound in the 1st game of the series for the Astros. Verlander gave up 3 runs on 2 hits and 2 walks across 7 innings. He struck out six but didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's 5-4 in over the A's. In his last 3 starts against the Mariners he has a 3.56 ERA and 17 strikeouts across 20.2 innings pitched.

BETTING TRENDS

Seattle are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games.

The total has gone OVER in 9 of Seattle's last 11 games on the road.

Houston are 6-2 SU in their last 8 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Houston's last 7 games against Seattle.

Prediction

The Mariners seem to be on a roll as they upset the Astros in the first of the series and have scored 5.1 runs per game in their last 5. They'll send Flexen to the mound and he's been really effective against Houston this season as he allowed only 1 run in each of the last 2 meetings. The Astros hit their average 4 runs per game but weren't enough. They're sending Justin Verlander sho got pounded by the Mariners the last time. I expect a close game and both pitchers should have success so I'd lean the under.

PICK: Under 8 (-110)
