Houston Astros vs Seattle Mariners Pick

1u - Justin Verlander To Record A Win (+117) (Bet $100 to win $117)

*Odds available at Caesars at time of publishing*

These odds are insane. +117 is a gift from the gambling gods. Verlander has 13 wins in 18 starts and has pitched 5+ innings in all 18 starts. In seven of his last eight starts, Verlander has recorded a win and two of those games were against this same Seattle team. Verlander has faced off against the Mariners four times this season and is 3-1 against them. He has also recorded a win in six of his last seven against them, he just owns this team in general.

Houston Astros vs Seattle Mariners Prediction

Let's go over the lifetime stats of these Seattle bats against Verlander. In 222 at-bats, they have just 48 hits which is only a .216 average. 19 of those hits are from Carlos Santana who is now washed barely sporting over a .200 average. Verlander should be in line for another elite start and I think if he qualifies for the win and leaves with the win he should be in safe hands with the Astros having the best bullpen in the MLB in terms of ERA.

Astros will need to score runs today to help out JV and they face Robbie Ray. On the surface level that’s scary but when you dive in it gets progressively less intimidating. Ray just faced Houston in his last start and allowed six runs in three innings while allowing 10 hits. In the other game against Houston this year the Astros put up four runs in the first five innings. So in eight innings of work against Houston this year we have seen the Astros put up 10 runs, if that theme continues then Verlander should cash us easy here. Getting +117 here feels illegal, these odds absolutely will move. If you can't get this then play the astros -0.5 F5 or the double result.
