MLB Free Pick | Marlins at Dodgers
I had a tough time deciding who to back tonight. Anyone I liked had odds too big to bet on, and the rest were just too dicey to put my money on. I decided to go with the Miami Marlins at Los Angeles Dodgers tonight, a team with the most wins in the Majors versus a team with the least wins in the National League.
Game: Miami Marlins (36-58, 48-46 ATS) at Los Angeles Dodgers (64-35, 47-52 ATS)
When: 10:10 PM ET, Friday, July 19th, 2019
Where: Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles, California
Current Line: MIA +234 LAD -274 Total: 7.5
TV Coverage: FS Florida, SportsNet LA
Probable Pitchers: Marlins RH Zac Gallen (0-1, 4.24 ERA) vs. Dodgers LH Hyun-Jin Ryu (10-2, 1.78 ERA)
After losing the World Series the last 2 years, Dave Roberts and his Dodgers are on a mission this year. Their 64 wins are 4 better than the Astros and Yankees. Both have the second most wins in Majors at 60.
Hyun-Jin Ryu is having an incredible year, and was rewarded with the starting nod in the ASG. He has been particularly great at home. In 9 starts at Dodger Stadium, Ryu is 7-0, allowing only 43 hits in 63.2 innings, while allowing only 6 earned runs. Those numbers equate to a 0.85 ERA and a 0.77 WHIP.
The Marlins send rookie Zac Gallen to the mound. The 23-year-old righty has held his own, allowing 3 runs or less in his 4 starts, although he only lasted 2 innings on July 2nd against the Nats. His command needs some work, giving 10 free passes in 17 innings of work.
The Dodgers are only 47-52 ATS, but this is a true David vs. Goliath matchup here tonight, and I expect the Dodgers to roll over the Marlins tonight.
LA has scored 530 runs to the Marlins’ 338, and their overall run differential is +152 to -85. My pick is the Los Angeles Dodgers on the Run Line.
