The Astros continue to climb the standings and remain hot. They are now 7 games over .500.
They’ve scored 29 runs over their last 6 games, which is just below 5 runs per game.
Although they don’t hit well for average, they have a balanced offensive attack which includes a lot of home runs.
They now have 112 dingers which is 11th best in the league.
Their balanced offense combined with the excellent pitching they’ve been receiving is a combo for success.
They allow just 4.2 runs per game which is 8th best in the league.
McCullers has been excellent for the Astros with his 3.79 ERA.
In his last 9 outings, he’s allowed 3 or less in 8 of those outings. He has typically lasted 6 innings on average.
The Mariners have been trending the opposite direction compared to the Astros. They are now just 1 game over .500.
In their last 7 games they’ve scored 28 runs, just 4 runs per game. In their last 5, however, they’ve score 25 so the offense is still putting up some runs but they can’t seem to win the close ones.
Iwakuma has been underperforming this season with just a 4.25 ERA and 1.34 whip.
He’s been getting some help offensively which is displayed by his 9-6 record but he’ll need to pitch well against the Astros if he wants the “W”.
In 2 of his last 3 starts, he’s pitched well. Giving up 1 run over 6.2 innings and 2 runs over 6.2 innings. The start in between those 2 starts he gave up 4 over 6 innings, which is a respectable effort given how well he did in the other 2 starts.
He looks like he’s finding his groove but he’s still typically giving up 3 runs at least over 6 innings.

Free Houston Astros vs Seattle Mariners MLB Prediction:
The pitching matchup is fairly even here but slight edge goes to the Astros.
The offense is fairly even in this one as well but slight edge goes to the Mariners.
This is a classic pick’em but you have to go with the team that’s finding ways to win. That team is Houston.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Astros ML
This game could easily become an offensive battle and it’ll take just one team to get to the opposing pitcher for this one to blow open.
This is one I would probably stay away from the over/under action but if you do take it, take the over.
