Oakland Athletics vs Seattle Mariners Prediction

I considered the Athletics and the plus money because they continue to find ways to win games despite expected to be one of the worst teams in MLB. We have no idea what to expect from Bryan Woo in his first start of the season after an elbow issue. With that said, Paul Blackburn has had issues on the road this season and when he's bad, he can really be bad. The Seattle Mariners have had some nice wins over the last couple of weeks, and the offense has shown flashes here and there. The price is more than reasonable. I won't overthink this one and just take the better team in the Mariners at home.
