Seattle Mariners DFS SPIN
Julio Rodríguez went 4-for-6 with a stolen base on Saturday, leading the Mariners to a lopsided 10-3 win over the Astros. Rodríguez has been sizzling hot at the dish, recording a major league record 17 hits over his last four contests. He’s notched four consecutive four-hit performances and has two homers and five stolen bases during that span. The 22-year-old fantasy superstar made a slight mechanical adjustment earlier this week to widen his batting stance and the results have been staggering. He’s the hottest hitter in baseball at the moment and might be able to lead the Mariners back to the postseason if he keeps this up.
Houston Astros DFS SPIN
Kyle Tucker leads the Astros in all batting categories. He is listed day-to-day and has not played since the Marlins series since getting an illness. Against Seattle this year he has batted .318 with 5 RBI’s. He is a crucial bat in an important division game.

Mariners vs. Astros MLB BETTING PREDICTION
It is hard to beat a team three times in a row. Seattle has dominated Houston this year but at no point have they swept a season series. Seattle starter Emerson Hancock is a strong young prospect. He may even play well tonight again. The experience of the Astros lineup makes it hard to see Hancok going into Houston and getting a win. Seattle is a threat though, not out of the division race quite yet and have a strong lineup themselves.
