The Miami Marlins and Los Angeles Dodgers meet Sunday in MLB action at Dodger Stadium.

The Miami Marlins could use a win after losing five of their last seven games. The Marlins have scored 11 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four of their last eight games. The Miami Marlins have won three of their last four games when scoring four or more runs. Starlin Castro leads the Marlins with 95 hits and 40 RBI while Miguel Rojas and Brian Anderson have combined for 177 hits and 73 RBI. Jordan Yamamoto gets the ball, and he is 4-0 with a 1.59 ERA and 34 strikeouts this season. This will be Yamamoto’s first career game against the Dodgers.

The Los Angeles Dodgers look for another win after winning six of their last eight games. The Dodgers have scored 18 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last eight games. The Los Angeles Dodgers have won five of their last seven games when scoring four or more runs. Cody Bellinger leads the Dodgers with 116 hits and 77 RBI while Justin Turner and Alex Verdugo have combined for 188 hits and 84 RBI. Walker Buehler gets the ball, and he is 8-1 with a 3.44 ERA and 120 strikeouts this season. Buehler is 0-0 with a 3.60 ERA and 12 strikeouts in his career against the Marlins.

The Marlins are 19-43 in their last 62 during game 3 of a series, 1-5 in their last 6 Sunday games and 5-1 in Yamamotos last 6 starts. The Dodgers are 46-19 in their last 65 during game 3 of a series, 36-15 in their last 51 Sunday games and 7-2 in Buehlers last 9 starts. The over is 33-14-5 in the last 52 meetings in Los Angeles. The over is 5-2 in Dodgers last 7 overall. The under is 9-3-1 in Marlins last 13 overall.

Yamamoto has allowed no more than two earned runs in all six of his games this season and has given up a combined six hits and two earned runs in his last 11 innings. Buehler has allowed 15 earned runs in his last 49.2 innings, and he has a 3.16 ERA and .203 allowed batting average at home through 51.1 innings. The Marlins are worth a look with the heavy plus money based on the way Yamamoto has pitched this season, but the Dodgers are just way too consistent at home and they've had a ton of success with Buehler on the hill. Backing the Dodgers at home this season has made a ton of money all season. No reason to backdown from that trend now.

Pick:
Los Angeles Dodgers -1.5
