The Braves are putting up 4.97 runs per game this season while hitting .257 as a team. On the mound, Atlanta has a 4.36 team ERA and a 1.37 team WHIP. Freddie Freeman is leading the team with 15 doubles, 16 home runs and 38 RBI while Dansby Swanson has nine doubles, 13 home runs and 43 RBI.
Marlins end win streak
Miami is coming off a 5-1 loss at Milwaukee on Thursday, which snapped a four-game win streak. The Marlins are 23-37 on the season, 11-18 at home and 31-26 with the under. Jose Urena gets the start for the Marlins today. He is 4-6 on the year with a 4.14 ERA.
The Marlins have been on a scoring surge as of late, but average just 3.57 runs per game while hitting .236 as a team. When it comes to pitching, Miami has a 4.36 team ERA and a 1.32 team WHIP. Jorge Alfaro is leading the team with nine home runs and 25 RBI while Brian Anderson has 11 doubles, seven home runs and 27 RBI.
MLB Betting Trends
The Braves are 9-4 in their last 13 road games, but they have lost five straight against a right-handed starter.
The Marlins are just 2-6 in Urena’s last eight Friday starts and 7-22 in his last 29 road starts against a winning team.
Atlanta has won five of six with the Marlins so far this season, including three games in Miami. Sokora has been really strong on the mound. He has only allowed multiple earned runs in one of his nine starts, and that was just three runs. Sokora pitched seven strong at Miami back on May 4. Urena has given up multiple runs in eight of his last 10 starts and he gave up five runs to the Braves back on May 3. Despite Miami’s recent run, I think the matchup just favors the Braves tonight.
