The Miami Marlins and Los Angeles Dodgers begin a three-game series Monday night.
The Miami Marlins look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Marlins have allowed 11 runs in their last three games and three or less runs in eight of their last 12 games. The Marlins have won seven of their last eight games when allowing three or less runs. Offensively, Dee Gordon leads Miami with 54 hits and 12 RBI while Giancarlo Stanton and Martin Prado have combined for 43 RBI. The Miami Marlins have split their last six games on the road. Tom Koehler gets the ball, and he’s 2-3 with a 5.18 ERA and 23 strikeouts this season. Koehler is 1-2 with a 3.45 ERA and six strikeouts in his career against the Dodgers.

The Los Angeles Dodgers look to stay hot after winning four of their last five games. The Dodgers have scored 25 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last nine games. The Dodgers have won 17 straight games when scoring more than three runs. Adrian Gonzalez leads LA with 43 hits and 29 RBI while Joc Pederson and Yasmani Grandal have combined for 29 RBI. The Los Angeles have won four straight games on their home field. Dodgers Zack Greinke takes the hill, and he’s 5-0 with a 1.56 ERA and 34 strikeouts this season. Greinke is 3-0 with a 3.97 ERA and 30 strikeouts in his career against the Marlins.
The Marlins are 8-3 in their last 11 games as an underdog and 1-4 in Koehlers last 5 starts with 4 days of rest. The Dodgers are 4-1 in their last 5 during game 1 of a series and 27-7 in Greinkes last 34 home starts. The Marlins are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings in Los Angeles.
Both offenses have put up numbers this season and that should continue in this big park. I like the over in this matchup, especially considering the over is 35-12-5 in the last 52 meetings.
