Betting Odds: Mariners ML (-140) - Over/Under (8)
Pick: Mariners ML (-140)
Tuesday night will be one of the most crucial nights in the entire Major League Baseball season, as several teams come into this week with their playoff hopes hanging in the balance throughout the next six days. Both the Houston Astros and the Seattle Mariners come into the second game of their series here on Tuesday night looking to pick up a crucial win as they both look to lock down a playoff spot and stay in the running to win the American League West division as well.
The defending World Series champions had a slow start to the 2023 Major League Baseball season. However, you can certainly argue that it was a championship hangover, because the Houston Astros managed to kick things into gear over the summer and then I’ll find themselves in a solid position to defend their World Series title, as well as their American League pennant from last season. Houston comes into the second game of the series against the Seattle Mariners sitting in second place in the American League West division only a couple of games behind the Texas Rangers heading into the final week of the regular season.
Houston will be looking to pick up a crucial victory in this game on Tuesday night with Framber Valdez getting the baseball for them in this one as they look to lock down either a wildcard spot or win the division over the next six days. Houston will also need the Texas Rangers to lose some games coming down the stretch if they want a chance at winning the American League West division as well. If Houston can grab some victories over Seattle, they would put themselves in an amazing position to clinch a playoff spot before heading into the final weekend of the year. I would also give them some much-needed breathing room for the third spot in the American League wildcard race as well.

The Seattle Mariners will be looking to pick up a crucial victory in the second game of the series on Tuesday night as they look to clinch their second consecutive playoff berth after missing the playoffs for two consecutive decades over the last 20 years. They will also be looking to have a hot finish to the regular season as they look to secure their third consecutive 90 victory season as well throughout the last week of the year and they will have to be pretty much flawless if they want to accomplish that goal.
They come into the second game of the series sitting in third place in the American League west division, and in fourth place in the American League wildcard race, as they are right behind the Houston Astros, and picking up victories in this series would virtually guarantee themselves a spot in the playoffs. George Kirby will have to pitch one of the best games of the season going opposite of Framber Valdez if the Seattle Mariners wanna grab a much-needed victory in this game on Tuesday night at home. Seattle will also need the Texas Rangers to lose some games coming down the stretch if they want a chance at winning the American League West division as well.
Betting trends to consider in this matchup:
- Seattle is 60-44 as a favorite this season
- Seattle is 41-33 at home this season
- Seattle is 36-34 after a loss this season
I look for the Seattle Mariners to grab the victory in this game on Tuesday night over the Houston Astros at home. Framber Valdez has struggled a little bit this season against Seattle and I expect that to be a problem once again in this game against the Mariners here on Tuesday night and the second game of the series as I look for the Seattle Mariners to get themselves a much-needed victory here in this one.
