The Miami Marlins have been one of the worst teams in all of baseball this season. They have a 45-78 record and will miss the playoffs for the 16th straight year. A big problem for the Marlins has been their abysmal offense. The team ranks second to last in the league in scoring (453). Brian Anderson has been one of their leaders with a .259 average to go along with 20 homers and 65 RBIs. Starlin Castro hasn’t been what he was expected to be, as he’s batting .260 with 11 homers.
On the mound for the Marlins is Elieser Hernandez. The 24-year-old has struggled with a 2-4 record and a 5.40 ERA in 53.1 innings. In his last start against the Braves he had his best outing. In that contest he went six scoreless innings allowing only two hits.
Atlanta leads the NL East with a 74-52 record this season. They are 5.5 games in front of the Washington Nationals. If they hold on to win the division it would be the second straight season they win it. It’d be the first time they’ve done that since 2004-05. The team has a high-powered offense which ranks second in the NL. Atlanta is led by young superstar Ronald Acuna Jr and Freddie Freeman. Acuna Jr. is hitting .296 with 35 homers and 29 stolen bases. Freeman is batting .303 with 31 homers and 98 RBIs. The pair have formed one of the best duos in the league. Veteran Josh Donaldson has been good as well with 29 homers and 73 RBIs.
The Braves have veteran Dallas Keuchel on the mound. Keuchel is 3-5 on the season with a 4.39 ERA. Keuchel has struggled to keep the ball on the field allowing 11 homers in just 65.2 innings of work.

Free Miami Marlins vs. Atlanta Braves MLB Prediction: Over
With neither pitching tearing it up on the mound this game screams over due to the Braves offense. I expect Acuna Jr to have a big night against Hernandez.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Over
The Braves should figure out Hernandez who surprisingly dominated them a few weeks back. Take the over here it’s the safest play as the Braves line is too big.
