Astros’ Peacock draws the start against Mariners on Tuesday

Brad Peacock will start for the Astros on Tuesday in Seattle. It's the first time the Astros will start someone outside of their normal rotation. It will be a "bullpen game," as Peacock likely won't go more than a couple innings.

Mariners’ Leake outstanding for Mariners in no-decision

Mike Leake allowed just two hits over eight shutout innings, but took a no decision against the Athletics on Wednesday. Leake walked just one and struck out six in one of his best outings in a Mariner uniform. Unfortunately, the Mariner offense didn’t give him any support -- literally -- to prevent him from picking up the win. Mr. Quality Start now has five in a row, and his ERA lowers to 3.90 with a 1.26 WHIP over 154 2/3 innings on the season. Leake will start again on Tuesday against the Astros.

MLB Betting Trends

Houston

The Astros are 12-5 in Peacock’s last 17 road starts and are 12-5 in his last 17 outings overall.

Seattle

The Mariners have lost seven of their last 10 home games despite beating the Astros at Safeco Field last night.

Prediction:

Despite all of the success the Astros have had when Peacock starts, I just can’t back the defending champs in their current state. They’ve lost eight of 10, they’re winless in their last five games versus the Mariners, and are 1-7 in their last eight divisional matchups. Plus, the M’s are 4-1 in Leake’s last five starts and 12-1 in his last 13 outings when their opponent allows five runs or more in its previous contest.

 

The Pick: Seattle Mariners +115
