According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Marlins are -131 money line favorites over the Giants, who have odds of +121 to pull off the upset in Miami. With Jeff Samardzija set to face David Phelps in the pitching matchup, the over/under currently sits at 8.5 for today's game.
SAN FRANCISCO: The Giants have been a bad bet of late with Samardzija on the mound, losing all four of his last four starts and all four of his last four starts on the road. They're also 1-4 in his last five starts when he's coming off of four days of rest and have dropped five of his last six starts when he faces a team with a winning record.
MIAMI: The Marlins have been a poor play for bettors with their starter too, going 2-6 in Phelps' last eight starts overall and 2-5 in his last seven home starts. They're also 2-5 in his last seven starts when he's coming off four days of rest and have dropped five of his last six outings after allowing two runs or less in their pervious game as a team. (The Marlins beat the Giants 2-0 on Tuesday night.)
OUR PICK: With both teams struggling to win with their respective pitchers on the mound, the total is where to find the most value in this matchup. In his 21 games this season behind home plate, the under has cashed 16 times when Cory Blaser has called games. The under is also 22-8 in his last 30 games behind home plate, is 5-2 in his last seven games behind home plate when he's calling Giants games, and is 7-3 in his 10 games behind home plate on a Wednesday.
