Houston Astros vs. Seattle Mariners MLB Prediction:
I look for the Astros to bounce back after a terrible loss to the Rangers on Sunday. That was a game they should not have lost.
Houston is the better team and I feel that they will show that on Monday. So far, they have taken care of business against Seattle and I see that happening again in game 1.
I feel that Garcia will pitch well and the Astros will do enough against Flexen to get a win.
I am going with the Astros straight up here.
