Seattle Mariners vs Kansas City Royals Prediction

The Kansas City Royals as underdogs is going to be attractive based on the way they've played this season, especially at home. However, we're getting a cheap price with the Mariners, and they have a clear edge on the mound with Bryce Miller over Daniel Lynch IV. Miller has been one of the more underrated pitchers this season, while Lynch IV doesn't go deep in games and has a small sample size as a starter these last two seasons overall. A near pick em price with a Mariners team that's treading upwards. Give me the Mariners.
