The Chicago Cubs and Miami Marlins face off on Saturday in an MLB showdown at Marlins Park. On Friday it was the Marlins that were able to secure the 3-2 victory. 

Cubs Betting Preview

The Cubs sit with a 14-11 record overall but on Friday the offense really struggled scoring only two runs and that led to the defeat. Overall the Cubs are averaging 5.48 runs while their defense is giving up 3.68 runs per game. The offense is ranked 4th while the defense is ranked 5th. Patrick Wisdom has hit nine home runs and driven in 18 RBIs. On the mound for the Cubs will be Caleb Kilian who is being called up from the minors to make the start here. 

Marlins Betting Preview

The Marlins sit with a 14-13 record overall and when they have found success it’s usually been the pitching. On Friday the pitching gave up only two runs on the way to the victory. The Marlins are averaging 3.26 runs while their defense is giving up 4.63 runs per game. The offense is ranked 29th while the defense is ranked 19th. Garrett Cooper has hit three home runs and driven in 13 RBIs. On the mound for the Marlins will be Edward Cabrera who sits with a 1-2 record and an ERA of 4.91. In his last start against the Braves he went 4.1 innings giving up four hits and four runs. 

Cubs vs Marlins Trends

Cubs are 5-0 in their last 5 after scoring 2 runs or less in their previous game. Cubs are 4-0 in their last 4 when their opponent allows 2 runs or less in their previous game. Cubs are 11-1 in their last 12 vs. a team with a winning record. Marlins are 1-5 in Cabreras last 6 starts when their opponent scores 2 runs or less in their previous game. Cubs are 2-8 in their last 10 Saturday games.

Shane’s Free Pick

The Marlins offense didn’t breakout on Friday, but this game is going to be different. I don’t trust Kilian to find a whole lot of success here, and the Marlins will find success scoring. The Cubs will also find success scoring against Cabrera and this game is going to be higher scoring. Back the over to cash.
