Seattle at Houston

1 unit on Seattle +264 (moneyline) (risk 1 to return 3.64) RESULT: LOSS
The Houston Astros took care of the Seattle Mariners in the opener, 8-2. The game changed when Houston struck for 5 runs in the 5th. This is an interesting matchup as Seattle goes with Taiwuan Walker, who had Tommy John surgery back in 2018, and Houston goes with Lance McCullers, who is mking his first start after Tommy John surgery. It usually takes awhile for a pitcher off TJ surgery to get back in the groove and comfortable. McCullers has not pitched since August of 2018. The Mariners have some power and launched a pair in the opener, and this line seems way overdone with the mound uncertainty of McCullers. Make the play on Seattle.
