Miami Marlins Fantasy Spin

Jorge Alfaro continued his hot-hitting against his former club on Saturday, going 2-for-5 with a two-run homer in a loss to the Phillies. Alfaro blasted his two-run shot off of Enyel De Los Santos in the seventh inning, cutting the Marlins' deficit to three at 10-7. He has been one of the top offensive performers in all of baseball from the catcher position this season, slashing a robust .297/.342/.500 with five homers and nine RBI.

Philadelphia Phillies Fantasy Spin

Rhys Hoskins clubbed his eighth home run of the season on Saturday, helping to lead the Phillies to a wild 12-9 victory over the Marlins. The Phillies raced out to a 10-1 lead in this one, but the Marlins battled all the way back to make it a 10-9 ballgame in the eighth inning. That's where Hoskins smashed his two-run homer off of Drew Steckenrider to give the Philies some breathing room and effectively put the game away. Hoskins also singled in the game, finishing the night 2-for-4. He's off to a terrific start to the 2019 season, slashing .276/.408/.592 with eight long balls and 22 RBI.

MLB Betting Trends

Miami

The Marlins are 2-9 in Jorge Lopez’s last 11 starts.

Philadelphia

The Phillies have won four of their last five home games.

Prediction:

The Marlins have a terrible offense, but Phillies starter Zach Eflin has been a mixed bag this season. He has a middling 20.5% strikeout rate and a low 4.5% walk rate. Home runs have also been an issue for him, as his HR/9 ratio is at 2.08. Citizens Bank Park isn’t forgiving to pitchers with a home run problem. While it’s dangerous to ask this Marlins team to produce offensively two days in a row, I do like the over today.

The Pick: Marlins/Phillies OVER 8
