The Miami Marlins need a win to snap a five-game losing streak. The Marlins have scored three runs in their last three games and three or less runs in five straight games. The Marlins have lost seven straight games when scoring three or less runs. Dee Gordon leads Miami with 110 hits and 17 RBI while Giancarlo Stanton and Adeiny Hechavarria have combined for 98 RBI. The Miami Marlins have lost five of their last seven home games. Tom Koehler takes the hill, and he’s 5-4 with a 3.76 ERA and 57 strikeouts this season. Koehler is 1-2 with a 2.91 ERA and 11 strikeouts in his career against the Dodgers.
The Dodgers are 0-4 in their last 4 during game 2 of a series and 35-16 in Kershaws last 51 starts. The Marlins are 18-37 in their last 55 games as an underdog and 4-1 in Koehlers last 5 starts. The Dodgers are 4-0 in Kershaws last 4 starts vs. Marlins.
The Marlins look like a team that's quit. They're not scoring, pitching is sucking and I don't expect that to change against Kershaw. I'd take the Dodgers and the runline to give your wager more value.
