The San Francisco Giants and the Miami Marlins meet in MLB action from LoanDepot Park on Tuesday. Let’s dive into the odds, starting pitching matchup, history and make a prediction for this game.
San Francisco is a -120 road favorite while Miami is a +100 home underdog. The total for this game is set at 8 runs.
Starting Pitching Matchup
Alex Wood will start for the Giants and is 0-0 with a 1.17 ERA and 8 strikeouts this season. Edward Cabrera will get the nod for the Marlins here and is 0-1 with a 4.63 ERA and 10 strikeouts this season.
Miami’s 4-3 win on Monday made it eight straight meetings between these two teams without back-to-back winners.
San Francisco is 0-4 in their last 4 games overall and 5-2 in their last 7 games against the NL East while the over is 4-0 in their last 4 road games against a team with a right-handed starter. Miami is 5-1 in their last 6 home games and 12-26 in their last 38 games following a win while the under is 5-0 in their last 5 games overall.
I’m on the under in this one. I just think this is going to end up as a low-scoring game, as the Giants tend to strike out a lot against right-handed pitching and the Marlins’ offense was non-existent for much of Monday’s game before coming alive late. I’ll roll with the under in what could be another 4-3 kind of game.
