The Phillies will look to build on a 6-4 run in their last 10 when they travel to Miami to play the Marlins. Although the Phillies chances of catching the Braves in the NL East are slim (9 games back), they are still very much alive in the NL Wild Card race (1.5 games back). Trying to keep pace, Philly will send out Vince Velasquez (5-7, 4.35 ERA) who has been okay this year.
Velasquez is coming off a win on Friday against the Padres where he went 5 1/3 innings only giving up 3 runs. Again, Velasquez has only been okay since rejoining the starting rotation going 3-4 with a 4.58 ERA in that time.
The Marlins obviously have not had the season they would have hoped for and are now 2-8 in their last 10 contests. Miami has been pretty bad as a batting and pitching unit, but they will look to spring an upset and dash their NL East rival’s chances at a Wild Card spot when they welcome the Phillies in on Friday.
The Marlins will start Hector Noesi (0-3, 9.39) who has been pretty brutal since rejoining the rotation three starts ago. In those starts he has allowed at least 5 runs in each of those games. He has also given up 6 home runs in the 15 13 innings, he has pitched over that span.

Free Philadelphia Phillies vs. Miami Marlins MLB Prediction:
The Phillies would be the obvious choice here, but their road form suggests this is not a done deal in Miami. It seems like a better spot to go with the over. The Marlins are not really winning many games, but they do tend to put up some runs and with the way Noesi has been pitching it is not too crazy to imagine this game getting over the total.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: OVER the Number
The bookies will probably have this game in the 10.5-11.5 range and these two teams really should be getting over that with the spots they are in.
MLB Free Score Prediction: Phillies 8 – Marlins 5
