The over is 7-3 in Marlins last 10 overall. The under is 4-1 in Nationals last 5 Sunday games. The Marlins are 32-67 in the last 99 meetings in Washington.
I'm not thrilled to back the Miami Marlins in any shape or form but Sandy Alcantara is on the mound here. It's the one time there's value in backing the Marlins. Anibal Sanchez hasn't been all that great this season, and he's been even worse at home where he has a 6.00 ERA. Give me the Marlins and the RL for max betting value.
