The Miami Marlins and Oakland Athletics face off on Wednesday in an MLB game at the RingCentral Coliseum. On Tuesday it was the Marlins that were able to secure the 5-3 victory. 

The Marlins sit with a 54-69 record overall and they have won each of the first two games of this series scoring ten runs total. The Marlins offense has been a big issue all season and they are currently averaging 3.66 runs per game which is 27th in the league. Jesus Aguilar is having a big season hitting 15 home runs and driving in 49 RBIs. 

The A’s come into this game with a 45-79 record overall and in the first two games of this series they have scored only three runs total. The A’s have been one of the worst teams in baseball and the offense has been the biggest reason why. The A”s are averaging only 3.37 runs per game which is 29th in the league. Seth Brown has hit 17 home runs and driven in 49 RBIs so far this year. 

On the mound for the Marlins is Jesus Luzardo who stis with 3-5 record and an ERA of 3.44. In his last start, he went 6.1 innings giving up four hits and one run.

On the mound for the A’s will be Cole Irvin who sits with a 6-11 record and an ERA of 3.88. In his last start against the Seattle Mariners, he went six innings giving up six hits and six runs. 

The Athletics are 4-24 in their last 28 home games vs. a team with a losing road record. The under is 4-0 in Irvin’s last four interleague starts. The under is 4-0 in Luzardo’s last four starts overall. 

The trends point towards the under with these two pitchers and runs are going to be very hard to come by in this game. The Marlins offense is ranked 27th while the A’s offense is ranked 29th in the league. This is going to be a lower scoring game and the under is going to cash in this one with ease. 

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
