Kansas City Royals vs Seattle Mariners Prediction

Michael Wacha has been a shell of himself up to this point, and I doubt he finds his footing on the road against a talented Mariners lineup. Logan Gilbert hasn't been great in his last two stars, but he's been ridiculous at home this season through 20 innings with an ERA under 2. The Kansas City Royals have been moneymakers so far this season and are going to be worth a look in the underdog role because of it. The Royals keep winning. However, the Mariners are at home with the pitching advantage and the price isn't crazy. Give me the Mariners to win game two against the Royals.
