The Miami Marlins and Los Angeles Angels meet Saturday in MLB action at Angel Stadium. Let’s preview this game and give out a pick and prediction.

Miami Marlins Betting Preview

The Miami Marlins have scored 22 runs in their last 3 games and 4 or more runs in 8 of their last 11 games. The Marlins have split their last 10 games when scoring 4 or more runs. Luis Arraez leads the Marlins with 63 hits and 18 RBI, while Bryan De La Cruz and Jorge Soler have combined for 97 hits and 50 RBI. Edward Cabrera gets the ball, and he is 3-4 with a 5.05 ERA and 61 strikeouts this season. This will be Cabrera’s first career game against the Angels.

Los Angeles Angels Betting Preview

The Los Angeles Angels have scored 13 runs in their last 3 games and 4 or more runs in 5 of their last 10 games. The Angels have won 6 straight games when scoring 4 or more runs. Shoehi Ohtani leads the Angels with 53 hits and 33 RBI, while Gio Urshela and Mike Trout have combined for 100 hits and 47 RBI. Shohei Ohtani gets the ball, and he is 5-1 with a 3.05 ERA and 80 strikeouts this season. This will be Ohtani’s second career game against the Marlins.

Trends

The Marlins are 8-16 in their last 24 interleague road games and 5-2 in their last 7 Saturday games. The Angels are 1-5 in their last 6 during game 2 of a series and 0-6 in their last 6 Saturday games. The under is 18-5-4 in Marlins last 27 Saturday games. The over is 7-1 in Angels last 8 Saturday games. The Marlins are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings in Los Angeles.

Randy’s Pick

The Miami Marlins and big plus money is intriguing with the way they're swinging the bats, but Edward Cabrera continues to have issues with his control and those things don't improve on the road. Shohei Ohtani continues to pitch well, and he's even better at home, where he has a 2.45 ERA and .131 allowed batting average. Give me the Angels and the RL for max betting value.
