Seattle Mariners at Detroit Tigers Prediction

Heading into Thursday’s American League matchup between Seattle and Detroit, the over-under line is at 7.5 runs. Look for this to be a low-scoring game, as the Tigers figure to struggle against Logan Gilbert, who has given up just 2 runs apiece in his last 2 outings. In addition, Eduardo Rodriguez has come back from his injury on fire. I recommend taking the under.
