The Miami Marlins look for another win after splitting their last 10 games. The Marlins have scored 15 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last 12 games. The Miami Marlins offense has been hit or miss recently, and they’ve won six straight games when scoring more than three runs.

The Mets are 7-2 in their last 9 during game 2 of a series and 5-2 in Syndergaards last 7 starts. The Marlins are 2-7 in their last 9 during game 2 of a series and 0-6 in Koehlers last 6 starts. The Marlins are 3-8 in Koehlers last 11 starts vs. Mets.
Syndergaard hasn't exactly been the Syndergaard of old and he's coming off a game in which he allowed five runs. Koehler has been a better pitcher than what his numbers indicate and he's been better at home. Not to mention the Marlins are still riding an emotional wave where they want to finish strong for Jose Fernandez.
I'll take a chance with the fish and the plus money here.
