Seattle Mariners vs Houston Astros Prediction

I know the Seattle Mariners have had issues scoring runs this season, but this line is a bit nuts. Bryce Miller was lights out in the month of April, and he's held his own on the road up to this point. Hunter Brown has been a disaster through 6 games, and there's no way I'm going to get behind him and hose numbers. Yes, the Astros are the Astros and being at home doesn't hurt, but the Mariners have a head and shoulders pitching advantage in this matchup. I'll gladly take the Mariners and the more favorable price.
