Why Bet the Astros

The Houston Astros after getting swept on the road by their divisional rival the Texas Rangers dropped two out of three over the weekend in Houston. Houston has seen Colby Rasmus jump out to a monster start, with a .279 batting average, but also 7 home runs and 18 runs batted in. The Astros are looking to get back to the postseason, but will need to find some consistency in their pitching. Houston’s team earned run average is 27th in all of Major League Baseball with a 4.85. The Astros have just 6 quality starts on the season.

Why Bet the Mariners

The Seattle Mariners have two of the top offensive players in the American League, with Robinson Cano and Nelson Cruz. Those two have been the main cogs in the lineup, with Cano blasting 6 home runs and driving in 14, while Cruz leads the team with a .286 batting average. Seattle is 29th in all of Major League Baseball with a woeful .225 batting average. The Mariners were projected by many to slide in as one of the worst teams in the American League West, but early one they have been ultra competitive.

Expert Score & Prediction

The Houston Astros are really struggling, and Seattle seems to have the offense to take care of Collin McHugh. McHugh has not been that strong this season, allowing a 2.10 WHIP to start the season. Hisashi Iwakuma gets the start for the start for the Seattle Marines. He has yet to win this season, but has struck out 18, while walking just 7. Look for the Seattle offense to get it going, especially at home. The bet in this game is the Seattle Mariners -119 over the Houston Astros on Wednesday night. The final score prediction: Mariners 8 – Astros 3.
