The Miami Marlins and the Los Angeles Dodgers meet Monday in MLB action from Dodger Stadium. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for this game. Here’s a Miami Marlins vs LA Dodgers Prediction.

Starting Pitching Matchup

The Miami Marlins will send Roddery Munoz to the mound for this one and he is 1-0 with a 2.45 ERA and 14 strikeouts this season. This will be Munoz’s first career start against the Dodgers. Walker Buehler will get the start for the Dodgers and is making his first start since the 2022 season after rehabbing from injury. In his career, Buehler is 1-1 with a 4.15 ERA and 35 strikeouts against Miami.

Miami Marlins Recap

The Miami Marlins come into this one looking to build some steam after salvaging a 12-3 win from their series with the Oakland A’s, but it wasn’t enough to keep Miami from losing the series, failing to build on their sweep of the Rockies from the set prior. Miami’s 4-run 1st inning proved to be all the offense the Marlins would need in the end, but bookended it with a 4-run 9th inning and a 3-run 6th sandwiched in the middle.

Marlins Still Cold At Plate Despite Win

Entering Sunday, Bryan De La Cruz has 37 hits with 8 doubles as well as a team-high 6 home runs and 18 RBIs, while also owning the dubious distinction of leading Miami with 38 strikeouts this season. Jazz Chisholm Jr. also leads the Fish with 18 RBIs and 5 stolen bases as well so far this season.

  • The Marlins have covered the run line in five of their last six night games against the Dodgers at Dodger Stadium following a win.

Los Angeles Dodgers Recap

The Los Angeles Dodgers come into this one fresh off of a 5-1 win over the Atlanta Braves to sweep the series and pick up yet another series win after beating up on the Diamondbacks and the Blue Jays in recent series. The Dodgers put up a pair of runs in the first inning and never looked back as the Braves and Dodgers each put up five hits as a team in the game. The Dodgers will meet the Padres and Giants after this series.

Dodgers Still Efficient At The Plate

Going into Sunday, Mookie Betts leads the Dodgers with 50 hits including 10 doubles, 6 home runs and a team-high 27 RBIs along with a .360 batting average and .464 OBP while Shohei Ohtani has 48 hits with 8 home runs, 22 RBIs and a team-high 14 doubles.

Miami Marlins vs LA Dodgers Prediction

I’m on the Dodgers here. Would I like a bigger sample size for Buehler before laying this kind of price or going after a run line? Sure, but the Marlins have been one of the worst teams in baseball this season, and it kind of feels like a solid starting point for Buehler to get his feet wet. Even if he doesn’t go deep into this game, the Dodgers’ bullpen has been one of the best in the league in the last couple of weeks, and I think the Marlins get completely shut down here. Give me the Dodgers.
