BETTING TRENDS

Houston are 6-1 SU in their last 7 games.

Houston are 8-1 SU in their last 9 games against Seattle.

Houston are 9-2 SU in their last 11 games on the road.

The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Houston's last 6 games when playing on the road against Seattle

The total has gone OVER in 5 of Seattle's last 7 games.

Seattle are 5-2 SU in their last 7 games.

The total has gone OVER in 4 of Seattle's last 5 games at home.

 

Prediction

The Mariners couldn't do much against Valdez and the Astros bullpen who held them to only 2 runs in the game and they'll now have to face Lance McCullers who has been pretty solid since his return and has dominated them in his career. Geroge Kirby will start for the Mariners who has been up and down this season and was pounded in his last start with 4 runs in 6 hits against one of the weakest offenses in the league, the Tigers. The Astros are on another level and the Mariners are no rivals for them so go with the Astros for the sweep.

PICK: Astros ML (-110)
