Mets vs. Marlins Prediction
Can the Marlins snap the Mets' four-game winning streak tonight when the division rivals clash at 7:10PM ET?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Marlins are -123 money line favorites versus the Mets, who have odds of +112 to pull off the upset tonight in Miami. With Robert Gsellman set to face Wei-Yin Chen in the pitching matchup, the over/under currently sits at 8 runs.
Gsellman has appeared in two games this season (one start), allowing three earned runs on eight hits over 6.0 innings of work. He took the loss last Saturday against the Marlins in his debut, allowing three runs on six hits while walking two and striking out seven over five frames. He was excellent last year for the Mets, posting a 2.42 ERA and a 42:15 K:BB ratio over 44 2/3 innings.
Chen (1-0) allowed only one run on seven hits and a walk while striking out five over six innings in a 7-2 win over the Mets on Friday. Chen was highly efficient in the win, throwing 63 of 86 pitches for strikes. He also picked up his first career major league hit on a dribbler that Asdrubal Cabrera couldn't come up with cleanly behind the mound.
OUR PICK: The Marlins have won eight of Chen's last 11 starts, are 8-0 in his last eight home starts, and are 6-1 in his last seven outings when he faces a team with a winning record. The Mets, meanwhile, are 1-4 in their last five games against a left-handed starter and might be due for a dud after winning four straight entering this series.
