Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Miami Marlins

May 6, 2024

The Miami Marlins (10-26) and Los Angeles Dodgers (23-13) will meet for the first time in this MLB season on Monday, May 6 at 10:10 PM ET at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, California. The Dodgers are favored to win with a run line at -1.5 (-130).

Miami Marlins Betting Preview

The Marlins have won three out of their last five games and recently snapped a two-game losing skid. This recent win was a 12-3 showing over the Oakland Athletics, which was nice to see after losing 20-4 in Game 2.

Roddery Munoz (1-0) gets the start at pitching, who has an ERA at 2.45 and a WHIP at 0.73 in 11.0 innings total. This is appealing when looking at their team ERA and WHIP, which stands at 5.12 and 1.48 respectively.

On offense, Bryan De La Cruz leads them with a .264 batting average, a .314 on-base percentage, and a .444 slugging percentage. He also has six home runs and 18 RBIs, making him a crucial component of their offense.

They are averaging .228 at the plate but need to stimulate more offense to remain competitive. On the other hand, they allow their opponents to average .260 and must slow them down to have a chance at winning.

Los Angeles Dodgers Betting Preview

The Dodgers have won their last four games and recently swept the Atlanta Braves in a three-game series. Against them, they averaged 6.66 runs and allowed just 2.00 to handle them easily.

The Dodgers hope he is back in good form with Walker Buehler back on the mound. His last performance was in June 2022, and he has had two Tommy John surgeries since. This could be a toss-up, but at least he is back against a struggling offensive team.

Their offense thrives with Shohei Ohtani, who also leads the league with a batting average of .364 and is tied for 10 home runs. He has accumulated a .426 on-base percentage, 25 RBIs, and a .685 slugging percentage, which makes him dangerous at the plate for any team.

For batting averages, the Dodgers put up .273 at the plate and have allowed their opponents to average .215. This healthy separation between the two averages will be critical in their chances of success.
