Tonight, the Nationals and the Mariners start a three-game series. Can George Kirby and MacKenzie Gore take control on the mound? Krabs shares his best bet for the Seattle Mariners vs. Washington Nationals game.

Seattle Mariners vs. Washington Nationals Prediction: Can George Kirby, MacKenzie Gore Take Control?

The Washington Nationals are in dire need of an offensive spark. Even CJ Abrams has cooled off in recent weeks after a great start to the season. Tonight, the Nationals welcome in the Seattle Mariners for the start of a weekend series. With two young aces on the bump for both teams, you’re not going to want to miss this one…

Seattle Mariners vs. Washington Nationals Prediction

It’s tough to decide which young starter is going to out-duel the other on Friday night. MacKenzie Gore lowered his ERA to 3.30 in his last start. The left-hander has continued to impress in his second season with Washington. George Kirby, on the other hand, hasn’t had the breakout year that everyone expected before the season. He just got rocked by the Orioles in his last outing, allowing five runs on nine hits.

If you dive into Kirby’s 2024 stats, you’ll notice that he typically either throws a gem, or gets absolutely lit-up. There’s really no in between, as he’s only had one scenario of back-to-back poor outings this season. I’m willing to bet he follows up his dud of a start with a gem in DC on Friday night. The Nationals have struggled mightily offensively in recent weeks, especially at home. I’m not expecting much out of their offense while Kirby is on the bump.

It’s pretty clear at this point that I’m fading these offenses and targeting the under on the total, but let’s isolate the first half of this ballgame. I don’t want to deal with the Nationals bullpen at all tonight, as they’ve been struggling in recent games. Let’s target the F5 under in this game, which has been moving lower and lower all day.

This morning, I grabbed the F5 under at 4.5 (-130). Right now, the F5 under is at 4 (-125). Lock this in before the odds get any worse on this under; I’ll meet you at the cash counter.
