Miami Marlins +158 / Washington Nationals -168 O/U: 7.5
The Washington Nationals and the Miami Marlins will continue their MLB series on Wednesday.
In the Tuesday opener of this set, Washington scored three in both the third and fourth innings on the way to a 6-1 win.
For Wednesday’s outing, the Nats are going with Patrick Corbin in the start. Over his 92.1 innings and 6-5 mark this year, Corbin has a 3.90 ERA with 102 Ks and 32 BBs.
The Nationals put up eight hits on Tuesday. Even pitcher Max Scherzer got in on the action, providing two hits and two runs.
Over on the Marlins’ side, they’re sending out Zac Gallen on Wednesday. Gallen has pitched just 5.0 innings this year but rocks a 1.80 ERA with six Ks and two walks.
Miami’s offense logged just five hits in the Tuesday loss. The only player with more than one hit on the team was Miguel Rojas, going 2-for-3.
The Nationals are 4-0 in the last four Wednesday games and 4-1 in Corbin’s last five starts in game two of a series. Washington is 0-4 in Corbin’s last four road starts and 4-1 in his last five versus the NL East.
Meanwhile, the Marlins are 4-1 in their last five Wednesday games and 6-2 in their last eight in game two of a series. The under is 8-2-1 in Miami’s last 11 Wednesday games and 4-1 in their last five in game two of a series.
Corbin has been really choppy lately. He had a three-game losing streak going this month, with 16 earned given up in a 12.2-inning span. Corbin did bounce back his last time up with 7.0 innings and one earned versus Philly though.
As for Gallen, he looked good in his debut last week against the Cardinals, and he should pitch well here. This one is something of a coin-flip game so I’m staying away, but there’s enough promise on Gallen to take a chance on the Marlins here.
