New York Yankees at Seattle Mariners Prediction

Heading into Tuesday’s AL matchup between New York and Seattle, the Yankees are the favorite on the moneyline. Luis Castillo has the tough task of taking on a dangerous New York offense for his first 2 starts with the Mariners. Even though Seattle grabbed the win, the last time he faced the Yankees, I expect New York to come out on top. I like the Yankees on the moneyline.
