The Nationals are quite a hefty favorite on Saturday afternoon vs. the Marlins. That makes sense, Miami is in last in the East. The way the two teams are playing coming into this series however, the higher value might be on the fish.
The Marlins have very quietly played some sneaky good baseball, winning six straight heading into Friday night’s opener at Nationals Park. Over that span they’ve swept a quality team in the Mets and won three in a row at Detroit.
In their current winning streak Miami is getting a nice combination of offense and defense. They’ve scored 4+ runs four times, but also held opponents to 2 runs or less in three of those.
The job of keeping that quality pitching stretch going Saturday belongs to Sandy Alcantara. Expect a lot of ground balls off the Washington bats Saturday as Alcantara just wrapped up a 2 hit SO vs. the Mets in which he threw just 89 pitches in 9 innings.
Washington seems like a way too high favorite considering they dropped 5 straight heading into Friday night’s series opener. The Nationals are scoring a decent amount of runs, but they are giving up a ton.
Only four batters on the Nationals roster have faced Alcantara but they’ve rocked him so far. Washington has 11 hits in 20 AB (.550) vs. the Miami starter with 2 HR.
Does Nationals starter Patrick Corbin get some run support on Saturday? He gave up 4ER to the Mets the last time out but in the two starts prior the lefty pitched 15 total innings, striking out 19 batters and only surrendering a single run.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Marlins are 12-40 last 52 road games
- Marlins are 2-5 in Alcantara’s last 7 road starts
- Nationals are 8-20 last 28 overall
- Nationals are 5-2 in Corbins last 7 starts
- Marlins are 8-22 last 30 H2H meetings
Free Miami Marlins vs. Washington Nationals MLB Prediction:
It’s hard to risk a ML over -200 on the Nationals the way they’ve played lately. Washington has hit Alcantara well though and Corbin struggled a bit his last time out. That should lead to the offenses having the advantage in this one.
