Miami Marlins vs. Philadelphia Phillies

June 30, 2024

The Miami Marlins (30-53) look to close out strong in this four-game series against the Philadelphia Phillies (54-29) on Sunday, June 30, at 1:35 PM ET at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The Phillies are in good shape to win, favored with a run line of -1.5 (-130).

Miami Marlins Betting Preview

The Marlins are 3-2 over their latest five games and have managed to land two wins over the Phillies in this series. Their most recent battle was a 3-2 victory in Game 3. So far, they are averaging 3.33 runs a game here.

They will have Yonny Chirinos (0-0) take the mound to start, who has a 2.70 ERA and a 1.40 WHIP. He only has 10.0 innings pitched so far, but he should positively impact the team's 4.50 ERA.

Offensively, the Marlins are led by Jazz Chisholm Jr., who has a batting average of .260, and Bryan De La Cruz, who leads with 14 homers and 39 RBIs. They each need to have strong performances if they want to boost this offense.

The Marlins are getting just .230 at the plate and allowing other teams to average .252. This negative ratio will likely hurt them again, especially after losing 2-0 in Game 2.

Philadelphia Phillies Betting Preview

The Phillies are also 3-2 in their last five games but have an opportunity to redeem themselves in this series. They are averaging 2.66 runs a game but can most certainly double this output with their strong offense.

Their starting pitcher will be Ranger Suarez (10-2), with an ERA of 1.83 and a WHIP of 0.92. He is a huge threat to the Marlins' offense, especially when the Phillies' team ERA is 3.04.

Bryce Harper is having a great year for the Phillies, as he leads them offensively with 20 homers and a batting average of .303, but he recently landed on the injury list. They also have Alec Bohm leading with 66 RBIs, which currently ranks fourth in the league.

The Phillies are averaging .258 at the plate and are giving up just .224 in return. This is a good separation between the two averages and puts them in an excellent position to win.
