The Seattle Mariners (74-58) and the Cleveland Guardians (68-62) play the middle game of a 3-game set Saturday at Progressive Field. First pitch is scheduled for 7:15 p.m. ET (FOX). Let's analyze Tipico Sportsbook's lines around the Mariners vs. Guardiansodds with MLB picks and predictions.

Season series: Mariners lead series 4-1

The Mariners picked up where they left off in Seattle. This team took 3 of 4 games from the Guardians at T-Mobile Park last weekend, and Seattle won 6-1 in Friday's series opener to avenge a loss to RHP Zach Plesac last weekend.

The Guardians have had a lot of difficulty plating runs, going for a total of just 13 runs in the past 8 games. Cleveland has won just 2 of its outings during that stretch of awful offensive performances.

Mariners at Guardians picks and predictions

Prediction

Mariners 6, Guardians 3

Money line

The MARINERS (-165) are moderate favorites and a strong play over the tumbling Guardians. Seattle has won 4 of the 5 meetings this season, and it is catching Cleveland at a perfect time. The Guardians have struggled to score lately, and they won't get back on track with a rookie making just his 2nd career start.

Run line/Against the spread

The MARINERS -1.5 (+102) are worth playing on the run line. All 5 wins during Seattle's 5-game win streak have come by 2 or more runs. In addition, the M's have won 3 of 4 games against the Guardians by 2 or more runs, too.

Over/Under

OVER 7.5 (-122) is worth a look as the Mariners will try to keep the offense rolling. They have 3 or more runs in 8 straight games and are averaging 6.2 runs per game during their 5-game win streak. While the Guardians are struggling to score runs, they should be able to at least plate a few runs of offense together to help get this over the finish line.
