MLB Betting Trends

Seattle

The Mariners are 3-13 in their last 16 Saturday games. Seattle is 7-2 in the last nine Gonzales starts.

Houston

The Astros are 39-12 in their last 51 games versus the AL West. Houston is 42-20 in the last 62 meetings.

Prediction:

Sanchez was awful this season for Toronto, but the Astros have a knack for turning pitchers around. Expect Sanchez to be an asset before long, perhaps as early as tonight. With the Astros hitting lefties hard, I think they get to Gonzales early and as long as Sanchez pitches into the sixth inning before giving way to the bullpen, the hosts should be in good shape.
