With the Nationals commanding the AL East with a superfluous 9.5 game lead. The Marlins are thinking wildcard if they hope to qualify for the postseason.
Miami has had a very bad run as of late, losing five of their last six overall. Miami is a bit of an enigma. The Marlins are one of the best hitting teams in all of baseball but fail to capitalize when they get runners on.
The Marlins are not keen on hitting the long ball, nor do they send runners to tag any extra bags.
Miami’s pitching is not their strong point. The Marlins are 18th in quality starts and 17th in WHIP, signifying their pitchers like to put men on base.
Then there is Jose Fernandez, a pure power pitcher that can incinerate the plate with fury, when he is on, teams need to beware.
At this point Cleveland is thinking post-season, the Indians are just 5-5 in their last ten outings but still solid 4.5 game lead over the Detroit Tigers in the AL Central.
Proficiency is Cleveland’s game, they play small ball and more or less promote efficient pitching. The Tribe do not clock a lot of home runs, otherwise they hit a MLB 5th .265 from the plate.
Cleveland’s style of play mirrors defending World Series Champion, Kansas City, they like to put the ball in play.
Traditionally Trevor Bauer would be classed as a run-of-the mill major league pitcher. Bauer sports an economical 3.73 ERA, he’s won 9 games and lost 6.
He has been especially effective for Cleveland as of late and given the fact he gets this match-up at home, many would surmise the soup will likely be on for the Tribe.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Marlins are 2-6 in their last 8 interleague games.
- Miami is 1-5 in their last 6 overall.
- Miami is 1-5 in the last 6 games Fernandez started.
- Indians are 9-2 in their last 11 interleague contests
- Cleveland is 4-1 in last five fixtures started by Bauer.
Free Miami Marlins vs. Cleveland Indians MLB Prediction:
We are simply going to play this one from a contrarian philosophy. With Jose Fernandez being a goat in his last six outings, complemented by Trevor Bauer being a beast in his last five, many will see this one as a washout for the Tribe.
Miami’s stock is ever so low now be that they have also procured some abysmal results as of late, which bodes well in terms of price.
Expect the numbers to be inflated to back Cleveland, conversely expect the price to be friendly with the Marlins.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Miami Marlins
Jose Fernandez is a horse, a glimmering talent that cannot be imperceptible to even the most biased fans and pundits. Fernandez is 13-7 with a 2.79 ERA, 219 strikeouts and a 1.11 WHIP.
When Fernandez is on, he shuts teams down and with Miami needing a big start from Fernandez to keep their post-season hopes alive, it is certainly feasible that Big Joe brings the broom tomorrow night.
