Seattle Mariners vs Minnesota Twins Prediction

The Seattle Mariners are getting the benefit of the doubt because of Luis Castillo getting the ball, and he's showing flashes of his former self, especially in his last 3 starts. However, we're getting plus money with the Twins at home, a team that's lost just one game since April 22. Also, Simeon Woods Richardson has more than held his own through 14.2 innings, and he's been able to pitch well with traffic. The value is with the Twins and the plus money. I'll take it.
