Seattle Mariners - Houston Astros
Astros are a great team and coming from a 6 game win streak to improve to 8-5 after a bad start to the season. The offensive end is working very well lately and they seem as they would be favorites against just about anyone.
And Seattle is a big anyone , with their form this year , 13-2 start and also 6 won in a row.
Seattle s offensive end is just producing and producing and they have 117 runs in 15 games , just amazing.
As for the pitchers , for Mariners it will be Wade Leblanc , he is 2-0 this season but with a lot of help of his offensive end because he had 4.76 ERA , with 13 hits (6 runs) allowed in 11 innings which aren t good numbers. Also against Astros last year in 4 starts he was 1-1 , 6.75 ERA. Has a career record of 41-40 and obviously he isn t an elite pitcher , but his team is supporting him heavily.
For Astros Wade Miley is pitching , solid start for him , coming of a great game vs Athletics. But with 72-77 record and cosindering he is a former Mariner , I just don t see him overperforming here and the Mariners batters will have a say in this match.
Considering the form of the two teams , and two non-elite pitchers I think we can see a lot of runs in this one and I find 10.5 worth a try over the opening line 8.5. But for a safer bet go with that one.
