MLB Odds/Point Spread: Seattle Mariners -183, Total Odds: 9

The White Sox had a difficult season overall, and before the trade deadline, they parted ways with a number of important pitchers to help their most recent attempt at a rebuild. While Houston leads Seattle by 1.5 matches for the second wild-card berth, Seattle was on a roll over the past few weeks, moving into the final wild-card spot in the American League as of Sunday.

 

Additionally, they were not far from the top slot in the AL West, held by the Rangers. After a difficult run in June and July, Castillo is 3-0 in his last four starts for Seattle. After being thoroughly outplayed by the Rockies in the first two matches of their series at Coors Field, the White Sox are in no position to advance. Seattle won the first game of this series, so expect them to keep up their momentum.
