Seattle Mariners vs Tampa Bay Rays Prediction

I’m on the Rays here. I’m a Luis Castillo fan, but there’s no denying that he hasn’t looked as sharp for a lot of this season, especially when you look at his road numbers, including recent road outings, where he’s been roughed up in back-to-back starts away from Seattle. The Rays are heating up, and are seeing the ball a lot better than the Mariners right now. I’m also not trusting this Mariners bullpen after they let one get away in Monday’s matchup. Give me Tampa Bay here.

Chris’s Pick Tampa Bay +118
