Seattle Mariners vs Baltimore Orioles Prediction

The Baltimore Orioles have been the more trustworthy team, and they should be favored at home. However, the Mariners are showing flashes here and there lately, and it's hard to step in front of Luis Castillo with the more favorable price. Castillo is looking more and more like the Castillo of old, and he's been great on the road, where he has an ERA under 3. There was no starting pitcher listed for the Orioles at the time of this article. Toss up spot, give me the Mariners and the cheap price.
