Marlins' struggles continue

Miami has now lost 10 of its last 12 games following Sunday's 4-3 home defeat against the Mets, dropping two out of three in the series. Rafael Ortega was 2-for-5 with two stolen bases and a run in the loss. Starlin Castro finished 1-for-4 with a walk and an RBI. Martin Prado was 2-for-3 with a walk, a stolen base and a run. Bryan Holaday was 2-for-4 with a pair of RBIs. Wei-Yin Chen took the loss as he surrendered four runs (two earned) on four hits with six strikeouts and two walks over six innings.

Braves take series from Brewers

Atlanta edged visiting Milwaukee by a count of 8-7 on Sunday to win two out of three in the series and move into a first-place tie with Philadelphia in the NL East. Ronald Acuna Jr. finished 1-for-3 with a home run, a walk and two RBIs. Ozzie Albies went 1-for-4 with a solo home run. Freddie Freeman was 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles and two runs. Nick Markakis finished 2-for-4 with a triple, a double, a run and two RBIs. Tyler Flowers ended the game 1-for-3 with two runs, while Dansby Swanson was 1-for-3 with a 2-run homer and a walk. Jonny Venters picked up the win as he allowed two hits and walked one with one strikeout over one inning. A.J. Minter gave up one hit and struck out two in a scoreless ninth inning for his 10th save.

Miami has not yet announced a starter for the afternoon game, while Atlanta turns to highly touted propect Touki Toussaint to make his MLB debut. The Marlins have also not named a Game 2 starter, but the Braves have already pegged in Mike Foltynewicz (9-7, 2.98).

MLB Betting Trends

Miami

The Marlins are 2-10 in their last 12 games overall. Miami is 7-2 in its last nine Monday games.

Atlanta

The Braves are 10-4 in their last 14 games overall. The over is 41-19-3 in the last 63 meetings.

Prediction:

It's hard to make predictions before Miami starting pitchers have been announced, but it doesn't seem probably that the Marlins are going to suddenly find a pitcher to throw out there who can suddenly shut down the opposition. Coupled with a struggling offense and going against a strong Braves team, I like the hosts to take both ends of this doubleheader.
