Houston Astros vs. Seattle Mariners MLB Prediction:
The Astros have been playing good ball and I look for that to continue in this game. I do not give Seattle much of a chance in this one.
Houston is the better team and I think they will take care of business in this game.
I look for McCullers to keep up his good pitching and for the Astros to do enough against Kikuchi to get a win.
I will play the Astros on the moneyline here.
