Trends

Minnesota is 6-0 in their last 6 games and 3-7 in their last 10 interleague road games. The over is 3-1-1 in Minnesota’s last 5 Tuesday games. Miami is 16-37 in their last 53 Tuesday games and 7-19 in their last 26 game two’s of a series. The under is 4-1 in Miami’s last 5 Tuesday games. The over is 7-1-1 in these two teams last 9 head to head meetings. 

Pick

Miami comes into this game with a 1-4 record, but they will have one of the best starting pitchers on the mound in this matchup. Minnesota is undefeated to start the season, but Kenta Maeda will be on the mound for them, who had a rough 2022 season. Alcantara didn’t pitch great in his first outing, but I expect a bounce back performance from him and I am taking the Marlins to win. 

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