German will be on the mound in the 1st game of the series for New York. German pitched 4.2 innings against the Mets, giving up two runs on five hits, two walks, and seven strikeouts. He did not factor in the decision. He has a 1-0 record with an ERA of 3.60 and 14 strikeouts in 2 appearances against the Mariners in his career.

Seattle Mariners

The Mariners get here with a 55-48 record and have lost 3 of their last 4 games. The team is averaging 4.06 runs per game. They're batting for .235 AVG, 414 runs scored in 796 hits and 110 home runs, ranking #23 in offense in the league, behind the Tampa Bay Rays. Julio Rodriguez leads with 57 RBI and 18 home runs and batting for .271 avg. Ty France has the best batting average with .308.

Gonzales earned the win against the Rangers on Wednesday, allowing two earned runs on four hits and one walk while striking out five. He is 0-1 with an ERA of 3.32 and 13 strikeouts in 3 appearances against the Yankees in his career.

BETTING TRENDS

Seattle Mariners are 15-4 SU in their last 19 games on the road.

The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Seattle's last 5 games when playing on the road against NY Yankees.

The total has gone OVER in 8 of NY Yankees' last 9 games at home.

NY Yankees are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games against an opponent in the American League.

Prediction

The Yankees offense continue to stay as they scored an average of 6.2 runs per game in their last series and have been playing great at home where they hold a 40-13 record. They'll send Domingo German to the mound who had a good start vs Mets allowing 2 runs in 4.2 innings and dominated the Mariners the last time he faced them. The Mariners struggled again vs Astros and will have another tough series vs Yankees. Marco Gonzales has done a decent job so far this season but the Mariners are 8-12 when he has started. The Yankees weren't that great in July but they're still the best team in the American League and have been solid at home. The Mariners will be without Rodriguez and France so the Yankees have a clear advantage for this game. Take the Yankees.

PICK: Yankees -1.5 (+110)
