Houston Astros Fantasy Spin

Jose Altuve homered for the fifth straight game Saturday to lead the Astros to their eighth consecutive victory, a 3-1 win over the Mariners. Altuve extended his early-season power surge, the longest streak of his career, with a 411-foot blast to left-center field -- his seventh round-tripper of the year -- off Mariners’ starter Felix Hernandez in the fifth inning. He also singled in the third inning to record his eighth multi-hit effort in 15 games. The 28-year-old fantasy superstar is on an absolute tear right now, going deep six times in his last five contests. He’s hitting .333/.379/.717 with 11 runs scored, 13 RBI and one steal in 66 plate appearances this season. That’ll do.

Seattle Mariners Fantasy Spin

Mitch Haniger went 1-for-4 with a solo homer in the Mariners' loss to the Astros on Saturday. Haniger was the lone bright spot in an otherwise dismal effort for the Mariners' offense, which had nothing going against Astros' ace Justin Verlander for six innings. The 28-year-old outfielder's fourth inning solo shot, his fourth long ball of the year, accounted for their lone run of the contest. He's hitting .278/.325/.569 with 16 runs scored, 14 RBI and one stolen base in 80 plate appearances this season.

MLB Betting Trends

Houston

The Astros are now 5-2 in their last seven games versus the Mariners and are 36-17 in their last 53 games played in Seattle.

Seattle

The Mariners are a perfect 4-0 in Marco Gonzales’ last four starts.

Prediction:

It’s not surprising that the Astros’ outstanding pitching staff was the one to finally cool off the Mariners’ bats. I rolled the dice on the over last night and won’t do it again after Houston held on to a 3-1 victory. The under is 11-5 in the Astros’ last 16 games overall and is 4-1 in the Mariners’ last five divisional games. While Gonzales doesn’t strike many batters out, he does a nice job of limiting hard contact and keeping the ball on the ground. As for Houston starter Gerrit Cole, he’s just as capable of keeping Seattle’s offense in check as Justin Verlander, who was superb last night.

The Pick: Astros/Mariners UNDER 8
