Will update with trends once they're released.
It's tough to predict the second game of a doubleheader without knowing what took place in the first contest. It's even tougher to make a prediction when you have no idea who the starting pitchers are going to be. Yet here we are. We only have to go off of current form, and both of these teams have been hit or miss over the last couple of weeks. However, I do think the Marlins are the better team overall and have more upside, and they're showing flashes of getting back on track wit iso many of their players returning from COVID. The Mets have had a lot of time off and being thrown right into a doubleheader probably isn't the best thing in the world. The Mets pitching staff overall has left a lot to be desired at this point.
I'll take a shot in the dark by backing the Marlins in game two.
