The Marlins in the last 8 games have scored 39 runs. That is just under 5 runs per game which is above their season average off 4.2 runs per game.
It looks as if Giancarlo Stanton has found his stroke as of late which makes the Marlins extremely dangerous.
They hit well for average and that is with Stanton’s pour batting average, they hit .274 as a team and rank 2nd in the league.
Conley has pitched well for the Marlins as well and in his last 5 outings, he’s had two shutouts and allowed 2 or less in 4 of those 5 outings.

They are now 7 games over .500 and look to continue climbing the standings, they look capable and things are going well for them right now.

Free Miami Marlins vs. St. Louis Cardinals MLB Prediction:
Offensively, both teams are hitting well at the moment and putting up a bunch of runs, so I’d say they are even in this regard.
The pitching matchup favors the Marlins and they are also just finding ways to win a lot more often than the Cardinals.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Marlins ML
This game could end up high scoring because both teams are so dangerous offensively but averages are important to consider in the long run.
The line will probably be around 9 or 9.5 so I would go with under in hopes neither team doesn’t explode.
