Mariners top Astros

We like the Seattle Mariners. We like Miller alot. Houston has the tendency to go cold at times. The Mariners are not great offensively, but in this game on Monday, they are going to get just enough runs to win this game.

The Mariners win this game over the Astros, and the under hits. We will bet the Seattle Mariners over the Houston Astros. Take the UNDER as well in this one.
