Seattle Mariners vs Texas Rangers Prediction

I’m on the under here. I also lean towards Seattle, but I’m not loving how much of a nail-biter the Mariners made Friday’s matchup into, and these are two teams that are simply having a hard time drumming up consistent offense across the board. A lot of first to 3 wins games going on as of late, and these are two solid starting options in Eovaldi and Kirby. Obviously I favor Kirby more at home and with his head-to-head success against Texas, but I think a pitcher’s duel is brewing here. Give me the under.
