Expert Betting Tips
I'm backing the Miami Marlins in this game. I believe that the victory that the Fish had on Friday was a significant one, and I also believe that the Marlins are giving their best effort in this game since they are aware that a victory might potentially secure the final Wild Card position. Priester has already had a rough go of it for the better part of the season; his ERA of just under 8 is not going to cut it moving forward in this competition. In the end, I believe that the Miami Marlins are able to take advantage of the pitching duel and secure a significant victory for themselves with respect to the playoff race. Give me the Miami Marlins with the run line in this situation.
