Starting Pitching Matchup
Eury Perez will start for the Marlins and is 1-1 with a 3.86 ERA and 16 strikeouts this season. Patrick Sandoval will start for the Angels and is 3-3 with a 3.47 ERA and 34 strikeouts this season.
Miami is 5-1 in their last 6 interleague games and 2-6 in their last 8 games against a team with a left-handed starter while the under is 5-2 in their last 7 games against a team with a left-handed starter. Los Angeles is 4-1 in their last 5 home games and 5-1 in their last 6 games against a team with a right-handed starter while the under is 3-0-1 in their last 4 games against the NL East.
I’m backing the Marlins here. I like Patrick Sandoval, as he can be a very tough lefty, but the problem here is that the Marlins have been really good against lefties over the last couple of weeks and the Angels have been hit or miss in spots. Eury Perez is a young pitcher, but he’s shown some solid stuff and the Marlins’ bats have come to play as of late and I think the Marlins have the value here so I’ll take Miami.
