The Fish got off to a good start last year and even held a brief lead in their division for a while, but they finished the year less spectacularly at third place in National League East and 24th overall. Experts have them winning more games this year, but not moving up any higher than 4th in a top-heavy NL East. The Marlins have the distinction of winning a World Series championship in both seasons they qualified for the playoffs, doing so in 1997 and 2003.
They have two World Series titles, yet have never won their division, after making the playoffs both times as a National League wild card team and going on to win it all. The Marlins were the first National Wild Card team to win the World Series, and their 2003 team is the only other team to do so, aside from the 2001 St. Louis Cardinals and the 2014 San Francisco Giants.

As for a general baseball betting strategy, If you bet on other sports like NBA and the NFL, you’re used to good teams beating the cellar-dwelling teams most of the time. In soccer, it almost always happens. The top teams win up to 80 percent of their games throughout the season or may even go as high as 90 percent, and they’re often nearly unbeatable at home.
But, in baseball, a bad team will still win 30 percent or 40 percent of their games. Whereas a division leader will win 65-70%, So if a last place team is playing a league leader in a 3 game series, the favorites may lose a game, without it being a big deal or a massive upset.
