SEA (30-26) -140 u7.5 (-105) -1.5 (+145)

Prediction:

For this matchup, we predict that the Seattle Mariners will emerge victorious. Here's why:

Logan Gilbert has been outstanding for the Mariners this season, boasting a 3.06 ERA and a WHIP of 0.96. His ability to limit baserunners and keep hitters off-balance will be critical against the Astros. Meanwhile, Spencer Arrighetti's struggles on the mound, reflected in his 6.93 ERA and 1.78 WHIP, provide a significant opportunity for the Mariners' offense.

The Mariners' lineup, while not dominant, has key contributors like Julio Rodriguez and Cal Raleigh who can capitalize on Arrighetti's weaknesses. Additionally, Seattle's solid team ERA of 3.63 and WHIP of 1.08 show their overall pitching strength, which has been a cornerstone of their success this season.

Furthermore, the Mariners have a strong home record (17-10), indicating their ability to perform well at T-Mobile Park. This, combined with their recent form, gives them a clear advantage over the Astros.

Pick: Seattle Mariners (-140)
