Seattle Mariners at New York Yankees Prediction

Heading into Tuesday’s matchup between Seattle and New York, the Yankees are the heavy favorite to pick up the win. However, the Mariners will be hoping that their newest addition in Luis Castillo will help the team make it two-straight wins vs New York. Even with the excitement surrounding Castillo’s debut with Seattle, I expect the Yankees to come out on top. I like New York on the moneyline.
