Giants vs Marlins Betting Prediction

Both of the offenses are going to really struggle here. Jordan Hicks sits with an ERA of 1.00 while Weathers sits with an ERA of 2.57. Hicks especially is going to lockdown against a Marlins' offense that is averaging 3.75 runs per game. Neither team is going to reach three runs here and that is going to be the difference here as this game is going to stay under the total. Back the under to cash.
