Preview

The Houston Astros visit the Seattle Mariners to play a 3-game series at the Minute Maid Park. Both teams lost their last series, the Mariners lost against the Marlins and the Astros to the Blue Jays.

Seattle Mariners

The Mariners get here with a 12-10 record and have lost 4 of their last 5 games. The team is averaging 4.64 runs and allowing 3.73 runs per game. JP Crawford is batting for a .372 AVG. Ty France has 5 home runs and 21 RBI.

Logan Gilbert leads the team with 4 wins and a 0.64 ERA and 27 strikeouts.

Probable Pitcher: Marco Gonzales (1-2, 3.86 ERA)

Gonzales will be on the mound in the 1st game of the series for the Mariners. Gonzales picked up the win in Friday's 11-1 victory over Houston, allowing one run on four hits with six strikeouts in seven innings. He left his start Wednesday against the Rays after getting hit by a comebacker, but he escaped with nothing worse than a bruised left wrist. 

Houston Astros

The Astros get here with a 11-11 record and have won 4 of their last 6 games. The team is averaging 3.73 runs per game and are allowing 3.91 runs. Alex Bregman has 3 home runs 12 RBI. Michael Brantley is batting for .303 avg and Yordan Alvarez has 6 home runs.

Justin Verlander leads the team with 2 wins and a 1.73 ERAand 28 strikeouts.

Probable Pitcher:  Jake Odorizzi (1-2, 6.00 ERA)

Odorizzi will be on the mound in the 1st game of the series for the Astros. Odorizzi tossed six innings, giving up one run on one hit and a walk while striking out four on his way to a win Tuesday over the Rangers. He took the loss against the Mariners earlier this season and allowed 4 runs in 4.1 innings and struckout only one batter.

BETTING TRENDS

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

Seattle are 3-8 SU in their last 11 games on the road.

Houston are 4-2 SU in their last 6 games.

The total has gone OVER in 5 of Houston's last 6 games against Seattle.n.

Prediction

The Astros offense was off in the last 2 games scoring only 1.5 runs per game and they'll face again Marcos Gonzales who dominated them across 7 innings holding them to only 1 run. The Mariners are coming from score 7 runs in their last game and will be facing Odorizzi who wasn't really good against them. The Astros are only 2-4 at home so far this season so I'll take the Mariners to win first of the series.
