Peters Set to Make Second Career Start vs Nationals

The Miami Marlins have been no match for the Washington Nationals of late but will seek to put forth a better effort when the NL East rivals collide on the diamond on Wednesday. The Nats, who can complete a three-game sweep of the Fish today, opened as -120 road favorites with a total of 9.

Shark Bites
  • The Nationals are 7-0 SU in their last seven games against the Marlins.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 16 of the Nationals’ last 22 games on the road against the Marlins.
  • The Marlins are 0-5 SU and 1-4 ATS in their last five games against teams with winning records.

Gio Gonzalez and Dillon Peters are expected to get the start for the Nats and Marlins, respectively. Gonzalez (13-6, 2.58 ERA) has been dynamite against the Marlins in his career, as the hurler has gone 9-3 with a 1.94 ERA in 15 career starts against them. Gonzalez owns a 3-0 record with a 1.29 ERA and 26 strikeouts vs Miami this year.

Peters (0-0, 0.00) did not record a decision in his major-league debut vs Philadelphia last week but scattered only three hits over seven scoreless innings. The bullpen was unable to hold a one-run lead in the ninth inning, which spoiled Peters’ bid for his first career victory in the process.

The UNDER is red-hot when the Marlins and Nats meet in Florida. In the last eight games between the clubs in Miami, the UNDER is 6-2.
