Prediction:

In this matchup, we predict that the game will go over 7.5 runs. Here's why:

Both starting pitchers, George Kirby and MacKenzie Gore, have shown vulnerabilities this season. Kirby has a 3.99 ERA and has given up 7 home runs in 56.1 innings, while Gore has a 3.30 ERA and has allowed 4 home runs in 46.1 innings. These numbers suggest that both teams have the potential to score runs.

Offensively, the Mariners have demonstrated power with players like Cal Raleigh and Julio Rodriguez, who can change the game with a single swing. Similarly, the Nationals have CJ Abrams and Joey Meneses, who are capable of driving in runs and putting pressure on opposing pitchers.

Recent performances also support the over. The Mariners' last game against the Yankees ended in a 7-3 loss, while the Nationals have been involved in high-scoring games, including a 12-3 win against the Twins and a 10-0 loss to the same team.

Pick: Over 7.5 runs (-120)
