MLB Betting Trends


The under is 16-5-1 in the last 22 Phillies games overall. Philadelphia is 10-3 in its last 13 games overall.


The Marlins are 3-8 in the last 11 meetings. The over is 13-6-1 in the last 20 Miami games on Saturdays.


Philadelphia has played great baseball as of late and has Nola on the mound here. Richards is young and has some promise, but he has been overmatched this season. Don't overthink this and take the Phillies.
