Mariners take opener
Seattle won Tuesday’s series opener at Houston, 7-1, thanks to a strong showing on the mound from James Paxton. The Mariners are now 38-22 overall and 18-10 on the road. Seattle is scoring 4.37 runs per game on the season while allowing 3.98 per contest.
Wade LeBlanc gets the start for the Mariners on Wednesday. He has started six games this year and appeared in a total of 11. LeBlanc has a 1-0 record with a 2.60 ERA and a 1.11 WHIP. He has pitched a total of 45.0 innings and has 35 strikeouts with nine walks.
Houston drops three straight
The Astros have lost three straight following the 7-1 loss to the Mariners on Tuesday. Houston is 37-25 overall with an 18-14 record at home. The Astros are putting up 4.87 runs per game this season while allowing just 3.00 per contest.
Lance McCullers Jr. is getting the start for the Astros on Wednesday. He is 7-3 on the season with a 3.89 ERA and a 1.17 WHIP. McCullers Jr. has pitched a total of 69.1 innings and has 72 strikeouts with 27 walks.
MLB Betting Trends
The Mariners have won four of their last five road games and 16 of their last 21 overall. They also are 10-1 in LeBlanc’s last 11 starts.
The Astros are just 2-5 in their last seven games overall, but they have won seven of McCullers’ last 10 home starts against a winning team.
The Mariners are on a nice roll right now, hitting well at the plate while getting strong pitching. McCullers has been better than Keuchel on the mound, but he has had some shaky starts as of late. He gave up seven runs just two starts ago. LeBlanc has looked good on the mound and I think he can ride the momentum of the Mariners to another win.
The Pick: Seattle Mariners +170
