The Miami Marlins and the Arizona Diamondbacks meet in MLB action from Chase Field on Wednesday. Let’s dive into the odds, starting pitching matchup, history and make a prediction for this game.

Odds

Arizona is a -145 home favorite while Miami is a +125 road underdog. The total for this game is set at 8.5 runs.

Starting Pitching Matchup

Edward Cabrera will get the start for the Marlins here and is 2-3 with a 4.78 ERA and 44 strikeouts this season. Merrill Kelly will get the start for Arizona here and is 3-3 with a 2.75 ERA and 40 strikeouts this season.

Matchup History

Miami’s 6-2 win over Arizona on Tuesday snapped Arizona’s two-game win streak in this head-to-head matchup.

Trends

Miami is 2-7 in their last 9 road games and 1-6 in their last 7 games overall while the under is 8-0 in their last 8 games against the NL West. Arizona is 7-1 in their last 8 Wednesday games and 6-2 in their last 8 games against a team with a losing record while the over is 6-2 in their last 8 games overall.

Pick

I’m backing Arizona here. The Marlins were the far better team on Tuesday, but as much as I like Edward Cabrera, I just think this is a tough spot on a quick turnaround and these early starts have a tendency to favor the home team. Arizona’s still the better team side-by-side in my opinion, so I’ll back the Diamondbacks here.
