Miami Marlins Fantasy Spin

Brian Anderson went 1-for-3 with an RBI and a walk in an extra-innings loss to the Braves on Sunday. With the Braves leading 1-0 in the eighth, Anderson drove in Jon Berti with an RBI single off of Josh Tomlin. It's the eighth RBI on the season for the second-year player, and the single and walk improves his slash to .240/.328/.322 in 121 at-bats. Those numbers are nothing to write home about, but we expect them to improve -- significantly -- as the year progresses.

Chicago Cubs Fantasy Spin

Anthony Rizzo went 1-for-5 and drove in a pair of runs on Sunday night as the Cubs walloped the Cardinals. Rizzo delivered a two-run double in the sixth inning, increasing the Cubs' lead to 5-2. For the season, Rizzo has been a bit of a disappointment relative to his average draft position, as the 29-year-old slugger is now hitting .241/.369/.526 with eight homers and 25 RBI.

MLB Betting Trends


The Marlins are 0-4 in Sandy Alcantara’s last four starts.


The Cubs are 13-3 in their last 16 games versus the Marlins at Wrigley Field.


The Cubs have owned the Marlins, winning six straight versus Miami and 13 of their last 16 home games against the Fish. Alcantara throws gas but his strikeout rate is a pedestrian 17.6% over the last two years and he’s walking batters at a 12.8% clip. With the way the Cubs are currently swinging the bats, Alcantara is in trouble and the light-swinging Marlins won’t be able to score enough off Cole Hamels to stay competitive.

The Pick: Chicago Cubs -1.5
