The Miami Marlins and Atlanta Braves face off on Wednesday in an MLB showdown at loanDepot Park. On Tuesday it was the Braves that secured the 6-0 victory. 

Braves Betting Preview

The Braves have gotten out to a fast start and they sit with a 20-10 record overall. On Tuesday the pitching gave up only four runs total and that was the difference as they secured the win. Matt Olson had a strong game finishing with one hit, two walks, and two runs. The Braves are averaging 5.2 runs while their pitching is giving up 3.6 runs per game. The offense is ranked 7th best in the league.  On the mound for the Braves will be Kyle Wright who sits with an 0-1 record and an ERA of 4.86. In his last start against the Marlins he went three innings giving up two hits and zero runs. 

Marlins Betting Preview

The Marlins sit with a 16-14 record overall and the offense was again a big issue on Wednesday, something that has always seemed to be a problem. The Marlins are averaging 3.3 runs while their pitching is giving up 4.67 runs per game. The offense is ranked 29th while the pitching is ranked 18th. In this game the Marlins need to find a way to get the offense going. On the mound for the Marlins is Braxton Garrett who sits with a 1-0 record an ERA of 2.45. In this game the Marlins are going to need a strong start from Garrett.

Shane’s Free Pick

The Marlins offense can’t be trusted and they are going to really struggle to score again in this game. I do also expect a strong start from Garrett and that is going to be the difference here as this game is going to be lower scoring. Look for only four or five runs to be scored. Back the under to cash.
