The New York Yankees attempt to continue their strong play on the road when they visit the Seattle Mariners for the middle contest of their three-game series on Tuesday (9:40 p.m. ET) at T-Mobile Park. New York (33-23) rolled past Seattle (28-26) 10-4 in Monday's series opener for its fifth consecutive road win and seventh in its last eight away from home. Aaron Judge belted a pair of home runs to increase his American League-leading total to 17 this season. On Tuesday, New York's Nestor Cortes (4-2, 5.30 ERA) makes the start against Seattle's Logan Gilbert (3-2, 3.60). The Mariners are -140 favorites (risk $140 to win $100) in the latest MLB odds from Caesars Sportsbook, while the Yankees are +118 underdogs. The over/under for total runs scored is 7.

The game is one of 15 on the MLB schedule for Tuesday evening. Elsewhere in the majors, the Miami Marlins (-140) seek their fourth straight win when they host the San Diego Padres and the AL West-leading Texas Rangers (-130) aim for their major league-best 19th road victory when they visit the Detroit Tigers.

After simulating every game on Tuesday 10,000 times, the model is picking the Houston Astros (-105) to defeat the Minnesota Twins. Houston has turned up the offense since being shut out by Milwaukee in back-to-back games last week, scoring a total of 26 runs over its last four contests. The Astros have belted nine home runs during that stretch, including seven at Oakland on Sunday.

Yordan Alvarez launched a pair of shots in that contest while Jeremy Pena and Jose Altuve both have gone deep twice over the span. The 25-year-old Alvarez has been a force at the plate over the first two months of the season as he is tied for second in the AL with 14 homers and ranks second in the majors with 48 RBI. He was one of only three Astros to record a hit against Minnesota starter Joe Ryan (7-1, 2.21) on Apr. 8 as he hit the first of his two grand slams this year to erase a 4-0 deficit. See who else to back here.
