Seattle Mariners DFS SPIN
Julio Rodríguez went 4-for-5 with a solo homer and two stolen bases on Friday, leading the Mariners to a 2-0 victory over the Astros. Rodríguez notched his third consecutive four-hit performance, and has collected 13 hits over his previous three games, since making a slight mechanical adjustment earlier this week to widen his batting stance. The 22-year-old fantasy superstar took Astros starter J.P. France deep in the opening frame for his 21st round-tripper of the season and also collected his fifth multi-steal effort of the year. He’s easily on pace for a 30-homer, 40-steal campaign if he keep this up.
Houston Astros DFS SPIN
Yainer Diaz went 2-for-4 on Friday in the Astros’ loss to the Mariners. Diaz was responsible for exactly half of Houston’s four hits combined as Bryce Miller, Justin Topa and Andrés Muñoz combined on a shutout effort.

Mariners vs. Astros MLB BETTING PREDICTION
Gilbert is 2-0 with a 4.40 ERA and 4.38 FIP over his last five starts, which span 28 2/3 innings of work. On the other side, Valdez is 2-2 with a 5.29 ERA and 5.43 FIP over his last five starts that span 32 1/3 innings. Seattle owns a 126 wRC+ over the past 30 days, while Houston’s wRC+ is 115. Given the struggles of Valdez, I like the over tonight with the way both teams have swung the bats of late (last night notwithstanding).
