Baseball Sports Betting Odds:
The Astros leap into this Monday night pairing sporting a 67-40 record that ranks them 1st in the AL West. With a 4-game lead over the second seeded Seattle Mariners, Houston is doing a decent job of holding onto that divisional lead. However, considering that the Astros are 0-4 in their last 4 matchups, it’s clear they need a rebound if they’re to keep that AL West lead. Fortunately for Houston, they just happen to be 4-2 against Seattle this season. With that in mind, it’s clear Houston shouldn’t have too hard of a time picking up the road win this evening. Gerrit Cole will get the start on behalf of the Astros this evening. Cole is 10-2 on the year and brings a 2.54 ERA and a 0.98 WHIP to the mound tonight.
Players to Watch: Jose Altuve (9 HR, 46 RBI, .329 BA), Alex Bregman (22 HR, 71 RBI, .278 BA), and George Springer (18 HR, 55 RBI, .251 BA).
The Mariners swim into this AL West rivalry flashing a 62-43 record that ranks them 2nd in the division. All in all Seattle has a great shot of chipping away at Houston’s lead this evening. However, since they’re 2-3 in their last 5 matchups, the Mariners don’t bring much momentum into this divisional rivalry. Since they’ve struggled against Houston this year, they could certainly use all the help they can get. Granted, they do have the home field advantage this evening. To help pull off the upset, Seattle will be sending James Paxton to the mound this evening. Paxton is 8-4 on the year and will be vying to improve his 3.70 ERA and his 1.09 WHIP.
Players to Watch: Nelson Cruz (25 HR, 61 RBI, .267 BA), Mitch Haniger (18 HR, 68 RBI, .262 BA), and Ryon Healy (21 HR, 54 RBI, .240 BA).
