Jose Urena vs. Ian Anderson
Miami Marlins DFS Spin
Starling Marte went 2-for-5 with a homer and a stolen base on Sunday as the Marlins fell to the Rays in extra innings. Marte got the Marlins on the board just two batters into the game, crushing a two-run homer off of Rays' right-hander Tyler Glasnow. He also singled and stole a base in the contest. He's having a terrific season offensively, slashing .306/.369/.458 with four homers, 17 RBI and six stolen bases between the Diamondbacks and Marlins.
Atlanta Braves DFS Spin
Marcell Ozuna went 3-for-5 with a homer and four RBI in the Braves' rout of the Nationals on Sunday. Ozuna has his 13th homer with a solo blast off of Patrick Corbin in the fifth inning. The other three RBI came on a bases-loaded double in the seventh, and the former St. Louis and Miami slugger has plated 36 runs. The three-hit day raises his average to .320, and his OPS is 1.062 over 35 games. Simply put, Ozuna has been an unqualified success for Atlanta in 2020.
Marlins vs. Braves Monday Prediction
Both teams have swung the bats well over the past couple of the days but the Marlins don’t have a ton of offensive firepower and the under has been a great play when these two teams collide. In the past 12 meetings in Atlanta between the Marlins and Braves, the under is 10-1-1. In the last seven meetings overall, the under is 5-1-1. The under is also 10-4 in the Marlins’ last 14 games when facing a team with a winning record and while this isn’t the best pitching matchup to back the under, the number is set high enough to give us some margin for error.
MONDAY MLB PREDICTION: MARLINS/BRAVES UNDER 9
