Miami Marlins vs. Philadelphia Phillies MLB Prediction:
I look for the Phillies to look sharp in this one. They need to keep playing well in order to get to the top of their division.
The Phillies are the better team and they need to take care of business against teams they are better than.
This has the opportunity to be a very good pitchers duel. I look for Zack Wheeler to pitch just a bit better than Pablo Lopez.
I do not want to lay the moneyline here, so I will go with the Phillies on the run line.
