Giants vs Marlins Prediction

Miami comes into this matchup with only four wins on the season, but they did win on Tuesday night and will look to make it two in a row here. San Francisco hasn’t been much better than Miami to start the season and they have alternated wins and losses over their last seven games. The Giants are starting Keaton Winn, who has allowed nine earned runs over 16.0 innings pitched in three starts. The Marlins are turning to Trevor Rogers, who has allowed eight earned runs over 15.0 innings pitched in three starts. I don’t love either starting pitcher in this matchup, but Winn does have a much better WHIP than Rogers. The Giants have been very good at bouncing back after a loss in recent games, so I will take them here.
