Cleveland Guardians vs Miami Marlins Prediction

Miami has really struggled to play consistent baseball this year and they come into this game just 12-24 at home this season. Cleveland is 20-14 on the road and they have one of the best records so far in the MLB. The Guardians are starting Carrasco, who has been extremely inconsistent this year. The Marlins are going with Rogers, who has been even worse than Carrasco. This pitching matchup is not ideal for either side, but I will gladly side with the better hitting team at this price. My Cleveland Guardians vs Miami Marlins prediction is for the Guardians to get the win.
