St. Louis Cardinals Fantasy Spin
Jose Martinez went 0-for-4 on Monday and is 1-for-13 during the month of June. Martinez was great at the end of April and the beginning of May and the Cardinals found plenty of playing time for him with Harrison Bader hurting, but he hasn't done anything the last three weeks and he's not playing much as a result. The start tonight was his fourth in the Cardinals' last 13 games.
Miami Marlins Fantasy Spin
JT Riddle grounded into double plays in both of his at-bats Monday before being removed in a double-switch. Nearly as baffling as the Marlins' decision to move Brian Anderson from third base to right field barely a week into the season was the call to make Riddle, a plus shortstop with little offensive ability, their starting center fielder. He's 4-for-22 with one RBI since being recalled. He's just holding the seat warm for someone else in center, but he should be playing shortstop if he's playing anywhere.
MLB Betting Trends
The Cardinals have dropped 13 of their last 17 games on the road despite winning last night in Miami.
The Marlins are winless in their last five games overall and are winless in five straight games at Elieser Hernandez starts as well.
With Hernandez set to oppose Dakota Hudson in the pitching matchup tonight, we have a pair of pitchers that don’t miss many bats but do generate a ton of ground balls. Last night, a struggling Michael Wacha shut down the Marlins’ offense because he produced 10 ground balls to just one fly. If these two pitchers can replicate the success that Wacha had, then this game should fly under the total. In fact, the under is 4-0-1 in the last five meetings between these two teams and is 3-0-1 in the last four meetings in Miami.
Tuesday MLB Prediction: Cardinals/Marlins under 8
