Miami is 4-1 in their last 5 Saturday games and 0-6 in their last 6 games. The over is 4-2 in Miami’s last 6 games. San Diego is 8-2 in their last 10 games and 7-2 in their last 9 home games. The over is 8-3 in San Diego’s last 11 games. The under is 8-3 in these two teams last 11 head to head meetings.

This should be a lower scoring game with two good pitchers going against each other. San Diego has been red hot in their last few games, while Miami has dropped six straight. I like Miami on the road with Lopez on the mound here.
