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

Prediction

The Mariners have been unstoppable winning 12 games in a row and are 6-2 against the Rangers this season. For this game they'll send Logan Gilbert to the mound who has struggled lately but still the Mariners haven't lost in his last 4 starts and he has dominated the Rangers this season. Texas offense hasn't been bad but they have been outscored as they are allowing almost 5 runs per game. Spencer Howard will get the ball and he has only 3 starts this season and is holding a 8.04 ERA so expect the Mariners to stay hot on this game. Take Seattle.

PICK: Mariners -1.5 (+120)
