Houston is 9-2 in their last 11 Saturday games and 50-23 in their last 73 road games. The over is 4-1 in Houston’s last 5 Saturday games. Seattle is 31-14 in their last 45 game two’s of a series and 4-1 in their last 5 games. The over is 6-1 in Seattle’s last 7 game two’s of a series. Houston is 6-0 in these two teams last 6 head to head meetings in Seattle.


Both of these teams have had very solid pitching to start the year, but their hitting has started the season slow. Seattle has a very low team batting average, but they will have the benefit of going up against J.P. France, who will be making his MLB debut. The Mariners are starting Marco Gonzales, who has allowed two earned runs or fewer in three of his last four starts. I am going to go with Seattle at home in this matchup.
