The Mets and Marlins are battling for that final NL wild card spot, so this game is very important for both clubs.
The Mets have won 4 of their last 7 games.
The Marlins have won 8 of their last 11 games.
Steven Matz is 7-6 with a 3.56 ERA and 1.26 WHIP. Jose Urena is 1-1 with a 6.23 ERA and 1.58 WHIP.
The Mets have continued to slide down the standings.
They are only putting up 3.8 runs per game and this is problematic for the club.
If you can’t generate many runs, you aren’t going to win very many ball games. They allow just 3.5 runs per game and are the best in the league but they need more run support.
In their last 4 games, they’ve scored just 10 runs.
Matz has been great for the Mets but has allowed a few more runs as of late and without the necessary run production, it’s just too difficult for them to win games.
He’s given up 7 over his last two starts over 12 innings pitched.
He was pretty good against the Marlins on July 5th, giving up just 2 over 7 innings. Miami ended up winning that one 5-2 though.
The Marlins have been hot and they are rolling out the wins right now.
They’ve scored just 24 runs over their last 6 games but have gotten them when it’s counted and received timely pitching.
They’ve won their last three games that were decided by 1 run.
Jose Urena was not a part of the regular rotation for the Marlins but started for them on July 19th against the Phillies and allowed just 1 run over 5.2 innings.
His ERA and WHIP are poor so we can’t put too much weight on the one start he’s had against a bad team like the Phillies.
Luckily the Mets struggle to score so this may work out for Urena again.

Free NY Mets vs. Miami Marlins MLB Prediction:
The pitching matchup favors the Mets without a doubt but the Mets struggle so much at scoring that even if Matz holds the Marlins to 2 or 3 runs, they still might not score enough on the Marlins.
Urena isn’t a great pitcher but he was pretty good in his start against the Phillies.
I’m going with the Marlins on this one.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Marlins ML
Both teams are trending heavy on the unders right now.
Mets are really poor at producing runs and the Marlins, despite winning, aren’t scoring a whole lot themselves.
MLB Free Score Prediction: Marlins 3-2
