Seattle Mariners: Performing way below preseason expectations

Tabbed as an American League MLB World Series contender at the start of the season, Seattle has played well below those lofty expectations. Sitting with a 27-33 record, the Mariners trail the Astros by 6.5 games in the AL West. June has been a disaster for Seattle as they are 3-7 and have scored two runs or less in seven of those contests. RHP Felix Hernandez (9-2 ERA 2.51) is 4-0 when he starts after a Mariners loss this year – the M’s were blanked 6-0 in Cleveland yesterday. The King is also a perfect 4-0 on the road – allowing seven runs over 34.2 innings pitched during five starts.

Houston, we’ve had a problem: Astros solid start has hit a steady downward spiral

On a torrid pace out of the 2015 MLB starting gate, with a 34-20 record, Houston has indeed had a problem as the Astros have lost seven in a row by a 34-.16 margin. Owners of a six game lead in the AL West back on June 3, the Stro’s are feeling the heat from the Rangers who are now just 2.5 games back. Living large with their league leading 79 homeruns, the Astors 29th ranked .233 team batting average and 561 strikeouts are warts that are starting to show. Limited for most of the season, due to a finger injury, RHP Brett Oberholtzer (0-1 ERA 3.75) gets the call for Houston.

Mariners vs Astros MLB Prediction: Though desperate to snap their losing streak, Houston is in trouble here. Whiffing an average of 9.2 times per game is not good when you are up against The King – especially when one considers that Hernandez is overdue for a double digit strikeout performance. Since the Mariners hitting leaves a lot to be desired, we are going to stay away from the run line here. Instead, we will back Seattle with a 500 unit wager on the money odds posted on the betting board at SportsInteraction. Clicik on the odds image below for instant access to SIA!
