Expert Betting Tips
I will continue to back the Seattle Mariners in this contest. Even though the Houston Astros took the opening game on Tuesday, the Seattle Mariners are the more desperate club. In fact, following Tuesday's loss, they may be even more desperate because George Kirby has performed significantly better at home this season. Even though Cristian Javier has had a difficult time pitching away from home, with an earned run average well above five, the Mariners have still managed to win eight of the eleven games played so far between these two teams this season. To keep things on an even keel, I'm going to go for the Seattle Mariners in this one.
