Miami is 5-0 in their last 5 game three’s of a series and 7-2 in their last 9 games. The over is 13-4-1 in Miami’s last 18 game three’s of a series. New York is 16-6 in their last 22 home games and 13-5 in their last 18 game three’s of a series. The over is 5-1-1 in New York’s last 7 Saturday games. Miami is 10-27 in these two teams last 37 head to head meetings in New York.

The Marlins were able to bounce back and win Game 2 of this series after getting blown out in Game 1. New York has dominated Miami in New York lately, so I expect the Mets to bounce back here. Carlos Carrasco bounced back in his last start by only allowing one run over 5.2 innings pitched. In his previous two starts, Carrasco allowed 11 runs. For the Marlins, Braxton Garrett also allowed one run in his last start after allowing five runs in his previous start. I like the Mets to win this game by at least two runs behind a strong outing from Carrasco.
