The Marlins are a popular sleeper pick in the NL East. If they are going have a chance at being in the race this season they are going to have to take some games against the Mets.
This is the opening game of their first series against the reigning division and league champions. Miami has not gotten off to a great start but they are can start feeling much better about themselves in a hurry if they kick off the series with a win.
Though it is just a few games in the Marlins have to be happy with what they are seeing at the plate. They are averaging more than 5 runs per game and only a couple of regulars have struggled to find a groove.
It is no surprise that Giancarlo Stanton leads the team in homers but through three games (heading into Sunday), he is the only player who has been able to jack one out of the park.
Dee Gordon and Adeiny Echevaria haven been getting on base a lot and Gordon probably should be running more.
The pitching has not been great in the early going.
This will be Jarred Cosart’s first start of the season. Last year he was solid in April, in fact it was his best month on the hill. Additionally he has been pretty good against the Mets.
He had a 3.00 ERA in three starts last season. Cosart was acquired to potentially anchor the Marlins rotation of the future but things haven’t really come together for him like that. If he takes a step forward this year it would be big for Miami.
New York Mets
Expectations are understandably high in New York.
This team made it to the World Series last year and could be even better in 2016. In the early going though it looks like the Mets are the same team, all pitch and no hit.
The sample size if very small but they have to be wondering about themselves just a little. Right now offseason acquisition Asdrubal Cabrera is leading the team in hitting but all that money invested in Yoenis Cespedes is looking like a waste.
He is hitting just .125 – though he is notably streaky.
New York heads into Sunday action with a team ERA of just 1.29.
Like Cosart above this well be Steve Matz’s first start of the season. Matz has about as much upside as any starter on this loaded staff and has still yet to lose a game in the Majors.
He did make one start against Miami last year, it was a no decision and there is not a ton to glean from that out outing. In his short career he has been noticeably more effective at Citi Field.

Free Miami Marlins vs. New York Mets MLB Prediction:
This should be a good series. Neither team is playing great right now but the gap between them is not as great as you think.
Sure there is no way the Marlins have the arms that New York does but I would probably give them the advantage in the order and they have the best hitter on either team in Stanton. This series should be fun to watch in terms of seeing how these teams really stack up against each other.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Mets
The Mets should be favoured in this one. On the mound it is easy to like Matz over Cosart but mostly I expect this one to a close game with either team having a great chance to win over the last three innings.
The cool weather probably also favours the home team who already has an advantage on the mound as it is. Mets take the opener.
