Seattle Mariners vs New York Yankees Prediction

I’m going to take the Mariners here. It’s simply a play on the value for me in this one, as the Yankees are hot right now, but the Twins have been scuffling and the White Sox are still one of the worst teams in baseball. The Mariners have a solid lineup and despite career issues against New York, Logan Gilbert is still one of the better options that the Mariners have in their rotation and his road numbers last year were really solid. Give me Seattle in this one.
