Seattle Mariners vs. Oakland Athletics MLB Prediction:
This is a matchup between 2 good teams in the American League West. I look for the Athletics to start off this series well.
Oakland is a better team and they have played well at their home ballpark this year. I do not feel that good with Seattle in this one.
Blackburn was solid in his last outing and I look for him to build on that. Oakland may not crush Gonzales, but I feel they will do enough against him to get a win.
I like the Athletics on the moneyline here.
