Marlins Crushing It As Home Favorites

With an 8-7 win in the series opener against the Washington Nationals on Monday, the Miami Marlins have continued their dominance when being pegged as home faves. The Marlins have now won their past 10 games as favorites at Marlins Park while covering the runline on nine occasions in that span.

Shark Bites
  • Dee Gordon is 9-for-18 with 6 stolen bases in the past 4 games.
  • The Nationals are 0-8 SU in their last 8 games as underdogs against the Marlins.
  • The Nationals are 11-4 SU in their last 15 games on the road.

Gio Gonzalez has been a much different pitcher on the road compared to in the friendly confines of Nationals Park. The lefty has a 4.09 ERA in his seven road starts this season while allowing more than twice as many runs as he has in the same number of games at home. That being said, Gonzalez pitched six innings of no-run ball in his first start of the season against this Marlins squad.

The Fins will counter with Edinson Volquez, who has been tearing it up, with the right-hander posting a 1.73 ERA while holding opponents to a .119 batting average in his past four appearances. The Marlins pitching staff has been keeping Volquez’ arm fresh, as he has only averaged 90.6 pitches per start this season. The bullpen has been stellar behind Volquez with AJ Ramos and company surrendering just nine runs in the righty’s past nine starts.
