Free Seattle Mariners vs. Tampa Bay Rays MLB Prediction:
This game will be interesting due to both of these pitchers pitching in their first couple starts in the majors this season. I am taking the Mariners on the road in this one.
Their lineup is very strong for Snell in this one.
Look for the Rays to keep the score close, but Paxton will do just enough to keep this Rays lineup quiet.
