Seattle Mariners vs Houston Astros Predictions 7/31/2022

 

Houston cruised to an easy victory on Friday night to avert the memory of a humiliating sweep at the hands of the Athletics.

 

The Astros had a 12-game advantage over the Mariners in the AL West heading into Saturday. They trailed the Yankees by two matches for the league’s best record.

 

Houston pounded up 15 hits on Friday night, paced by 3 apiece from Aledmys Diaz and Yordan Alvarez (both with 2 runs and 2 RBI).

 

The Astros’ final match before the break will feature Jake Odorizzi making his 12th start of the year. In 53 innings of work, he has a 4-3 record, a 4.25 ERA, a 1.226 WHIP, 15 walks, and 38 strikeouts.

 

In his most recent appearance, against the A’s on the road Monday night, Odorizzi was unsuccessful. He pitched five innings in a 7-5 loss for Houston, giving up 6 runs on 7 hits, one walk, and 2 strikeouts. Odorizzi is 0-1 with a 4.67 ERA, 1.04 WHIP, two walks, and 14 strikeouts in 17.1 innings across his previous three starts.

 

  • The Houston Astros are 29-26 in their road matches against the spread.
  • The totals went OVER in 3 of Houston’s last 5 matches.
  • The totals went OVER in 18 of the Astros’ 46 last matches at home.

Seattle Mariners vs Houston Astros. The MLB pick for this game is the Seattle Mariners. Although Houston leads the season series between these two clubs 11-6 going into Saturday, it will be difficult to support Odorizzi in this game.

 

Before this game, he started three consecutive games versus Oakland, and the outcomes weren’t exactly encouraging. He pitched 17.1 innings, went 0-1 with a 4.67 ERA, 1.04 WHIP, 2 walks, and 14 strikeouts, and the Astros lost all three of the contests.

 

That was a matchup with the American League’s bottom team. Seattle isn’t a terrific offensive club, but the Reds’ Friday night trade for All-Star Luis Castillo strengthens their rotation.

 

The Mariners had success against Odorizzi throughout his career, and Kirby performed admirably in his debut season.

 

In this last encounter between the clubs this season, give Seattle the advantage. The Seattle Mariners will win to a predicted score of 5-4.
