MLB Baseball Gambling Total:
The Miami Marlins will be on the road this Tuesday against a slumping Washington Nationals team who will be desperate to pick up a big home win to get back in the hunt for this division.
The Miami Marlins are not likely to find their way into the playoffs this year like they did in 2020, but they do seem to have a solid foundation going forward and they have remained very competitive even against the better teams in the league.
They are now on a 2-6 run though, with their batting lineup going quiet only scoring 17 total runs over that span and although this team has relied heavily on their starting rotation, that simply is not enough runs to get the job done.
Trevor Rogers is one of those guys they leaned on, and he gets the start here against the Nationals entering this contest with a 2.31 ERA and only allowing a .231 average against the Nationals to go along with a solid 29.4 % K rate against this team.
The Nationals are just 3-11 in their last 14 games which has put them way behind the 8-ball in terms of the NL East and given the hype that was surrounding this team this past offseason, it is safe to say not too many people thought they would be in the position they currently find themselves in.
I do think we see a big turnaround for the Nationals down the stretch though, as over those last few weeks of the season they have had to play a brutal strength of schedule and it looks like this batting lineup is primed for an excellent second half to the season.
We do not have a confirmed starter here for the Nationals, but the starting pitching has been decent, as this starting rotation has now provided over 30 quality starts and the overall ERA for this pitching unit is 4.39 which ranks 19th in the league.

Free Miami Marlins vs. Washington Nationals MLB Prediction:
Trevor Rogers has been awesome this season, and he has great numbers against this team, but I have serious concerns over this Marlins batting lineup going forward and so I believe we could see the Nationals pickup this win despite a likely discrepancy in terms of starting pitching.
The Nationals on paper are the much better team, and I do expect them to make a serious run at this division at some point and that run could very well start during this series with the Marlins.
