Miami is 17-37 in their last 54 interleague games and 21-52 in their last 73 road games. The under is 13-5 in Miami’s last 18 road games. Tampa Bay is 5-0 in their last 5 Wednesday games and 22-5 in their last 27 interleague home games. The over is 13-7 in Tampa Bay’s last 20 interleague games. Miami is 16-39 in these two teams last 55 head to head meetings.

The Marlins will turn to Cody Poteet to try and get them a win to snap these rough past five games. Poteet has allowed only run in his last five appearances, but only of those was a start. Tampa Bay answers with Rasmussen, who has only allowed three runs in his last five starts. This game should be a pitchers duel and I am taking the under.
