Pick: Guardians ML (-120)

Two potential playoff teams in the American League will open up a three game series here on Tuesday evening in Cleveland. These two teams already met earlier in the regular season, and it was Cleveland that got the best of Seattle winning the series out West. Now the Seattle Mariners will look to return the favor on the road here in Cleveland throughout the week. Meanwhile, Cleveland will look to put a bow on the season series with Seattle with another impressive performance and further extend their lead within the American League Central division as well.  

The Seattle Mariners are having an fantastic season up to this point and they have high expectations coming into the year. Due to the fact that the American League West has been less impressive, as both the Houston Astros and the Texas Rangers have losing records at this point of the season, Seattle is enjoying a pretty comfortable lead as the only team with a winning record in the American League West and one of only five teams with a winning record in the entire American League at the moment. As they have built up a nine game cushion within the division and they are playing solid baseball so they are hoping to get ahead even further throughout the next couple of weeks and explode throughout the summer. 

Seattle comes into the opening game of this series as winners of three in a row and seven out of their last ten. They will look to stay in form and grab their fourth consecutive victory here on Tuesday night against Cleveland. They are 12 games above the .500 mark with a record of 43-31 and three and a half games behind Cleveland for the second best record in the American League. Bryce Miller will get the ball for this game and he comes into this one with a record of 5-5 on the year. He will need to find a way to shut down a guardians offense that has been among one of the best in baseball throughout the early part of the year.

Cleveland is playing exceptional baseball throughout the first few months of the season and they are in first place of their division. They also have the second best record in the American League at the moment and some victories over Seattle will help them extend the fact that they have the second best record in the league. Triston McKenzie the start of this game and he has been hot and cold throughout the early part of the year as he continues to deal with arm issues that have plagued him since the off-season. He will look to shutdown a red hot Seattle team throughout this game on Tuesday night. Cleveland looks to get back into the win column following a series where they dropped two out of three games to the Toronto Blue Jays over the weekend.

Cleveland already has a pair of victories over Seattle from earlier this season and they will look to grab their third victory here on Tuesday. A win here in this game would officially clinch a share of the season series against the Mariners. Cleveland also lost three games in a row once this season and they will avoid that for a second time with another victory here in this one as well. Cleveland has yet to lose a series at home this year and that is something they will also look to avoid throughout this contest. They come into this game with the best home record in baseball and they will look to add another victory to that record with a solid performance.

Betting trends to consider in this matchup:

- Cleveland is 21-8 at home 

- Seattle is 16-19 on the road 

- Seattle is 13-17 against teams above. 500 

I expect this to be a close and competitive game here on Tuesday night in Cleveland. In the end, I look for Cleveland to grab the victory in the series opener at home over the Seattle Mariners. Cleveland has been one of the best teams in baseball at Progressive Field this season and I expect that to continue throughout this one as they return home after a road trip over the last week.
