A pair of National League foes take to the diamond to open up a series down in South Beach. The San Diego Padres are on the road as they open up a four-game series with the Miami Marlins Thursday night.
These teams haven’t played since the 2019 season, Miami took 4 of their 6 meetings.
Blake Snell had his longest outing since June 4th as he went 6 innings and allowed only 1 run while Jurickson Profar hit 2 RBI’s as the Padres defeated the Marlins 3-2 in the series opener on Thursday.
San Diego Padres
San Diego had a shortened series with Atlanta as their opener was cancelled due to rain and so was the 2nd game of their doubleheader on Wednesday.
The Padres enter Friday 3rd in the NL West, 5.5 games behind the league best San Francisco Giants for the top spot in the division.
The Padres will also hope that their offense continues to run up the score as the lineup is scoring 4.84 runs per game, which is among the best in the MLB. The batting order is led by Fernando Tatis Jr. who has 28 home runs on the season, a .296 Batting Average, and a .661 Slugging Percentage.
Miami dropped to 1-5 since the All-Star break as they were dropped for the second straight night in the nation’s capital by Washington.
The Marlins enter Friday last in the NL East, 10.5 games behind the Mets for the top spot. In the NL wild card race, the team stands 14 games behind the Padres for the second wild card spot.
The Miami Marlins are arguably the worst offensive team in the entire sport as they are last with a .674 OPS this season. They aren’t providing enough run support for this young pitching staff as they are averaging 3.88 runs per game.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Padres are 57-42 overall
- Padres are 24-23 on the road
- Marlins are 41-56 overall
- Marlins are 22-22 at home
San Diego Padres vs. Miami Marlins MLB Prediction:
Joe Musgrove started the season pitching far better than he has in any other season of his six-year career so far but has recently shown regression. Musgrove has a 7.36 ERA over his last 4 starts, and the Padres have also lost 3 of those games.
The Marlins have won five of their last seven home games against a team with a winning record and have excellent value in this spot.
I’m taking Miami to bounce back Friday night.
