Why The Rockies Could Cover The Spread
Noah Davis will get the ball for Colorado. He is making his season debut. Seattle is 23rd in batting average this season, so they are off to a slow start. Davis has a good chance to have a good first start of the season in this one if he pounds the zone. Davis has not struck many people out in his minor league starts this season, so he will need some help defensively. The Rockies struggle in that area, so this is something they will really need to focus on. As long as Colorado makes plays, the Rockies will be able to cover the spread, or win.
Why The Mariners Could Cover The Spread
The Mariners have their ace going. Luis Castillo is having a great season so far and he is turning out to be one of the front runners for the American League Cy Young. He has thrown 17 2/3 innings so far and has allowed only nine hits. His WHIP of 0.74 is sixth lowest in the MLB. As for the Rockies, Charlie Blackmon sees Castillo well, but the rest of the team will struggle. Castillo should have another good game in this one.
Seattle does strike out a good amount, but Davis has not been that type of pitcher to begin the season in the minor leagues. If Seattle can stick to their approach, they will be able to drive the ball. The Mariners have been hitting well this series, so this game should be no different. Kelenic and Suarez will lead the charge and Seattle should be able to put up some runs.
Final Rockies-Mariners Prediction & Pick
The Mariners have won both games so far and they have a good gameplan against the Colorado lineup. Luis Castillo is the best pitcher in Seattle, so expect him to be dominant in this game. The Rockies will struggle, and they have a pitcher making his season debut for this game. The Mariners should win this game and cover the spread.
Final Rockies-Mariners Prediction & Pick: Mariners -1.5 (-140), Under 8.5 (-124)
