The Seattle Mariners will open a four-game series with the New York Yankees on Monday in the Bronx. We're here to share our MLB odds series, make a Mariners-Yankees prediction, and pick while showing you how to watch.

The Mariners are currently leading the American League West and now will have their toughest test of the season as they continue their road trip after losing two of three to the Baltimore Orioles. Next, they will face the Bronx Bombers for four games in what could be a playoff preview.

The Yankees are coming off a sweep of the Chicago White Sox. Now, the Yanks will attempt to continue the momentum of this homestand against the Mariners.

This will be the first match of the season between the teams. Significantly, the Yankees went 4-2 against the Mariners last season, winning two of three at home and at T-Mobile Park. The first game of this series will feature an excellent pitching matchup.

Logan Gilbert starts for the Mariners. He is currently 3-2 with a 3.02 ERA. Recently, he tossed 6 2/3 innings while allowing three earned runs on four hits while striking out seven and walking three in a loss to the Kansas City Royals. Gilbert looks to do much better against the Yankees this time around after allowing seven earned runs in four innings in his last start against the Bronx Bombers last season.

Marcus Strowman starts for the Yankees. He is 3-2 with a 3.33 ERA. Amazingly, he tossed six scoreless innings while allowing two hits in a win over the Minnesota Twins in his last outing. Stroman is 1-2 with a 3.75 ERA over four games against the Yankees in his career.

Why The Mariners Will Cover The Spread/Win

The Mariners continue to struggle to hit the baseball. Overall, they are 25th in batting average and on-base percentage. Seattle also ranks 26th in runs. Yet, the Mariners are also ninth in home runs, showcasing their ability to bash the baseball. The Mariners are also 20th in slugging percentage.

Ty France has been a consistent force for the Mariners throughout his career. Additionally, he is 2 for 4 against Stroman in his career. Julio Rodriguez is one of the best hitters in this lineup. However, he has yet to solve Stroman, as he is 0 for 3 against him. Cal Raleigh has displayed so much power this season. Now, he hopes to finally get a hit against Stroman, as he is 0 for 2 against the pitcher. Mitch Haniger is another weapon in this lineup. Currently, he is 0 for 2 against Stroman.

The Mariners have a solid pitching staff. Significantly, they are 10th in team ERA. The Mariners also have excellent relievers. Ultimately, their bullpen is ninth in team ERA.

The Mariners will cover the spread if they can hit the baseball off Stroman. Then, they need Gilbert to find the strike zone and avoid making mistakes against the best hitters in this lineup.

Why The Yankees Will Cover The Spread/Win

The Yankees are excellent hitters. Currently, they are fifth in batting average and second in on-base percentage. The Yankees are also fourth in runs, first in home runs, and third in slugging percentage. Now, they hope their hitters can keep the momentum going.

Anthony Volpe is becoming one of the better leadoff hitters in baseball. Additionally, he has done well against Gilbert. Volpe is 1 for 2 with a home run against him. Meanwhile, Juan Soto has been one of the best hitters in baseball. But Soto is 0 for 7 against Gilbert, including three strikeouts. Likewise, Aaron Judge remains one of the more dangerous hitters in the game. But Judge is also 1 for 8 against Gilbert, with a double to his credit.

Giancarlo Stanton does not have the same skillset as he did a few years ago. Despite this, he is 1 for 3 against Gilbert. Anthony Rizzo is a solid hitter. Furthermore, he is 1 for 2 against Gilbert.

The Yankees have elite pitching, the best staff in baseball, and the best bullpen, which makes it difficult to score against them late in games. Now, they hope to use this combination to tool the Mariners.

The Yankees will cover the spread if their bats can get hot and make Gilbert uncomfortable. Then, they need Stroman to pitch well.

Final Mariners-Yankees Prediction & Pick

Can Gilbert bounce back against the Yankees? That is the question you have to ask. But when it all comes down to the wire, we believe that both pitchers will have some issues. While the Mariners do not possess the same bats as the Yankees, they are still more than capable of scoring some runs. But the Yankees will do more than enough in this one against Gilbert to get their own scoring going. Until Gilbert proves he can handle this lineup, expect the Yankees to do it again. The Yankees cover the spread.
