Houston vs. Seattle,

Score: 8 - 3
Point Spread: +1½/-126 Seattle
This is an 8* play on the Seattle Mariners +1.5.
The Mariners have split the first two games of this home series versus Houston, and I like Seattle as a dog in the rubber match.
Wade LeBlanc will toe the slab for Seattle, and he's been light out at home. LeBlanc (6-1, 3.51 ERA) allowed three runs on five hits over six innings in a no decision at LA his last time out. He's 6-0 with a 2.67 ERA in 11 appearances at Safeco.
The Astros hand the ball to Dallas Keuchel, who hasn't lived up to expectations this season. Keuchel (8-9. 360 ERA) allowed three runs on six hits in five innings in an 11-2 home loss to Texas his last time out. He's faced the Mariners twice already this season, going 0-2 with a 5.52 ERA.
Nelson Cruz hasn't been fooled by Keuchel, batting .333 with four home runs in 36 career at bats.
