The Pittsburgh Pirates and the Seattle Mariners meet in MLB action from T-Mobile Park on Friday night. Let’s dive into the odds, starting pitching matchup, history and make a prediction for this game.
Seattle is listed as a -150 road favorite while Pittsburgh is a +130 road underdog. The total for this game is set at 7 runs.
Starting Pitching Matchup
Mitch Keller will start for the Pirates here and is 5-1 with a 2.44 ERA and 77 strikeouts this season. George Kirby will get the call for the Mariners and is 5-3 with a 2.62 ERA and 47 strikeouts this season.
These two teams last met in 2019, when Seattle’s 6-5 win over the Pirates made it three straight wins for the Mariners in this head-to-head matchup.
Pittsburgh is 72-150 in their last 222 road games and 5-16 in their last 21 games overall while the under is 4-1-1 in their last 6 road games. Seattle is 4-1 in their last 5 games overall and 1-4 in their last 5 games against a team with a winning record while the under is 6-1 in their last 7 home games.
I’m backing the under here. This is a solid pitching matchup between Keller and Kirby here andalso two teams that aren’t the most explosive offensively when it comes to putting runs on the board. I think this could easily be the first to 3 wins, so give me the under here.
