Marlins roll past D-Backs
Miami won three out of four home games in its series versus Arizona including an 11-6 decision Monday night. Miguel Rojas homered for a third straight game to help pace the offense as he went 1-for-4 with the long ball, a walk, two runs and two RBIs. Brian Anderson finished 2-for-5 with a solo homer and two runs scored. Neil Walker ended the game 1-for-2 with a double, two walks, two runs and an RBI. Caleb Smith notched the win as he gave up four earned runs on four hits with nine strikeouts and one walk over seven innings.

MLB Betting Trends
The Twins are 5-1 in their last six series openers. Minnesota is 1-4 in its last five interleague games.
The Marlins are 5-1 in their last six games overall. Miami is 4-0 in its last four games versus a right-handed starter.
Gallen might be a rookie, but he is highly hyped and coming off a fantastic start at the White Sox. With Miami playing good ball right now and Minnesota having to travel across the country plus with a struggling Odorizzi on the mound, I'm sticking with the hosts in this game.
