The Cleveland Guardians (1-1) and Seattle Mariners (1-1) are set to collide for the third time in as many nights in one of Saturday, April 1's many exciting MLB matchups.

The Guardians beat up on the Mariners less than 24 hours ago, notching a 9-4 victory at T-Mobile Park. Left fielder Steven Kwan led the charge for Cleveland, racking up five RBIs on two hits. Meanwhile, Seattle was held off the scoresheet completely for the final five innings.

Guardians vs Mariners Prediction & Pick

The Guardians are rolling with Aaron Civale as tonight's starting pitcher. After an impressive 2021 campaign, the 27-year-old was anything but that last year. Civale went 5-6 in 20 starts for Cleveland, finishing with a 1.186 WHIP and a career-worst 4.92 ERA.

Meanwhile, the Mariners turn to Logan Gilbert to get the job done. The right-handed hurler is coming off a breakout season that saw him go 13-6 with a 3.20 ERA and 1.180 WHIP over 32 starts, leaving Seattle fans wondering if Gilbert has more of the same in store for 2023.

After getting beat up yesterday, I see the Mariners getting some revenge tonight. The good news for them is that Civale has pitched terribly in two previous trips to T-Mobile Park, going 0-2 with a 6.23 ERA over 13 innings. With names like Ty France, Julio Rodriguez and Eugenio Suarez, Seattle has more than enough talent to take advantage of the situation.

Back the Mariners in what should be another high-scoring affair.

Final Score Prediction: Mariners: 5 | Guardians: 4

Guardians vs Mariners Best Bet

When it comes to the best bet, I recommend backing the over on the seven-run total. The over is both 4-1 in the Mariners' last five games against AL Central foes while being 6-3 in the Guardians' last nine against the AL West.

After the Guardians' batters put on a show, look for the Mariners to be productive against Civale, playing a big role in the over being hit tonight.

Bet: Over 7 Runs (-114)
