Young Miami Squad

Miami pounded out 14 hits in the win on Sunday to grab a game in the series. Nick Gordon hit a home run, and had four hits in the game. Despite his big day, he is hitting just .207 on the season. The Marlins as a team are 24th in batting average, with a .223 average. The Marlins are 26th in team home runs.

The top power guy for Miami has been Bryan De La Cruz. He has clubbed a team high 6 homeruns. Josh Bell and Jazz Chsholm have four for the Marlins. Miami’s down several starters in the rotation, which leads to their team ERA of 5.18, which is 29th in all of Major League Baseball.

As of late Sunday, the Miami Marlins had yet to announce who their starter for this game was going to be. The Marlins used Sixto Sanchez for four innings in the win on Sunday.

Talented Dodgers Squad

Walker Buehler is set to get the start for the Los Angeles Dodgers. This will be his first start of the season. He missed the first 30+ games with an elbow injury. The righthander is coming off a season last year, where he went 6-3 in 12 starts. He threw 65 innings before his injury.

In the win on Sunday, James Paxton was strong, throwing 6.2 innings, and allowing just 5 hits and a single run. The Dodgers offense was the main story, with Shohei Ohtani having a monster game. Ohtani had four hits, and drove in three runners. He hit his 8th and 9th home runs of the season.

He leads the team with 9 homeruns. Los Angeles has 44 on the season. Max Muncy has been strong with the power as well, with 8 bombs, while Mookie Betts has 6. The Dodgers as a team are hitting .275, which is the best in all of Major League Baseball.

Dodgers Smack Miami

The Miami Marlins are going to struggle the rest of the season. They are shorthanded, and not as talented as much of the league. We like the Dodgers, with a strong outing from one of their big keys for the season.

Buehler throws well, and the Dodgers bats come to life. Our final bet for this game is the Los Angeles Dodgers -1.5 (-120) over the Miami Marlins. Enjoy the game and best of luck with all your Major League Baseball betting!
