Dodgers vs Marlins: Stumbling MLB Squads Meet in Miami

Dodgers vs Marlins: Stumbling MLB Squads Meet in Miami

Los Angeles Dodgers: Maintaining a slim lead in the NL West

Despite a 13-13 record in June, Los Angeles continues to rule the roost in the NL West. The Dodgers are 42-33 overall and own a slim two game lead over the San Francisco Giants while Arizona is six games back. Not displaying his usual ace form, LHP Clayton Kershaw (5-5 ERA 3.33) heads to the bump  for Los Angeles. The Dodgers have stumbled some with a 5-7 recent record but LA has won three straight road games, by a 16-3 margin, including a 7-1 mauling of the Marlins last night.

Miami Marlins: May meltdown has continued into a June swoon in South Beach

Posted as a middle of the road 2015 MLB World Series favorite, with a +3300 money line price in the preseason, the season is slipping away in South Beach. Mildly in the hunt after they posted a 12-12 season start, the Marlins have experienced a meltdown as the Fish are just 18-33 over their last 51 contests and sit 11.5 games behind the Washington Nationals in the NL East. After allowing one run, on three hits over seven innings, during a 2-1 win over the New York Yankees on June 15, RHP Tom Koehler (5-4 ERA 3.76) who is dealing with back an neck issues gets the call for Miami.

Marlins vs Dodgers MLB Decision: Miami is a mediocre 17-21 at home but that’s much better than the 13-24 mark they have posted on the road. Three straight wins have pushed the Dodgers road record to a pedestrian 15-20 mark. While it’s been weird picking “soft spots” with Kershaw this season, we like the Krushinator here. More about liking the Dodgers bats, over those of the Marlins, back Los Angeles with a 500 unit wager on the SportsInteraction run line price.
