Randy’s Pick

The Marlins should win this game and Braxton Garrett has been respectable this season, but the Marlins have been free-falling all second half of the season, and they’re fresh off a game where they didn’t score in 10 innings. The Nationals have been piling up the wins lately and have been one of the more profitable teams over the last month. I’m not laying juice with the Marlins. Give me the Nats and the plus money.
