Colorado Rockies at Miami Marlins Betting Preview

The Colorado Rockies and Miami Marlins are set to play their final game of a weekend series on Sunday. The Rockies have won the first two games of the series; 6-1 on Friday and 4-3 on Saturday.

The Rockies are now 39-59 on the season but remain in last place in the National League West. For Miami, they have now dropped eight straight games. The Marlins are 53-47 on the season, third place in the National League East.

The Miami Marlins are favorites in this game. Miami is listed at -180. The total for this game on Sunday is eight runs.

Marlins’ Struggles are Legit

The struggle is real for the Miami Marlins. The second half of the season has not been kind to the Marlins, with eight straight losses. After getting swept in Baltimore, and then St. Louis, Miami was hoping coming home to Colorado would help them out. During the eight-game losing streak, the Marlins are scoring just three runs per game.

The Marlins offense has the leading hitter in the National League, with Luis Arraez hitting .375. The Marlins also have a power hitting designated hitter in Jorge Soler. But, things have been a struggle to put it all together. The Marlins have dropped to 23rd in runs scored with just 411 on the season.

Jesus Luzardo is the scheduled pitcher for the Miami Marlins on Sunday. Luzardo is 8-5 on the season and holds a 3.34 earned run average. The 25-year-old lefthander has been a strikeout pitcher this season, with 131 strikeouts in 113.1 innings. Luzardo is coming off a loss in St. Louis on July 17th, lasting just four innings.

Rockies Seeking Spoiler Role

The Colorado Rockies will continue to play the role of the spoiler. In the National League West, down the stretch, they get plenty of chances. The Rockies, with their win, moved to 16-33 away from Coors Field this season. Colorado, with the win, has actually won four of their last five games overall.

During the last five games, the Rockies have scored 23 runs while allowing opponents to just score 18. In the win on Friday, Randal Grichuk had an RBI single in the 9th inning to win the game.

Grichuk is alongside Elias Diaz and Ryan McMahon as the trio in the lineup doing the most damage. Diaz, who was the National League All-Star Game MVP, is hitting .271, while McMahon has clubbed 15 home runs.

The Rockies are planning to throw Ty Blach in this game. Blach is 0-0 on the season, with a 6.75 earned run average. He has thrown 13.1 innings this season but has yet to make a start in 2023.

Marlins Snap Streak

The Miami Marlins are not going to get swept in three straight series after the All-Star Break, right? Miami should get this one with Luzardo going against a youngster for Colorado. Take the Miami Marlins -180 over the Colorado Rockies on Sunday.
