Miami Marlins vs LA Dodgers Prediction

Ryan Weathers has had some success against current Dodgers hitters in a limited sample size, but that's about all that's going for the Marlins right now. The Miami Marlins just aren't a good team by any metric, and they're nearly impossible to back against above average teams. Gavin Stone hasn't been good enough to lay these sorts of prices, but it doesn't matter. The Dodgers have found their form over the last week, and it doesn't take much to beat the Marlins, a team that appears to be heading to a complete teardown as the losses pile up. Give me the Dodgers and the RL on Wednesday afternoon. I have no use for the Marlins in a spot like this.
