Mariners vs Yankees Prediction

The current betting odds have the Yankees as a favorite in this game. They have been playing very well in their recent games as their offense is starting to heat up again. They are scoring a lot of runs in their games while the Mariners have not been scoring a lot and are still missing some key players from their lineup. The Yankees have Cole starting here and he is coming off of a bad start but he has always bounced back from one this season and he will bounce back against this cold and banged up Mariners lineup that has been struggling against good teams recently. The Mariners have Castillo starting here but the Yankees will find ways to score at home with how well their offense is playing and they will come away with the win here. The best way to place a bet here is on the Yankees to win this game.
