Free Moneyline Pick:
The Marlins bats came to life scoring 27 runs in their season opening series at home over the Rockies, winning 3 out of the 4 games. Today’s starter for Miami Tom Koehler was solid this spring, pitching 18 innings with 12 SO and only giving up 3 earned runs. Padre’s starter Eric Stults gave up 11 runs in 20 innings pitched this spring. The Padres bats only scored 6 runs in their 3 game season opener series against the tough Dodgers pitching staff. We like the Marlins at home as a small dog.
Take the Miami Marlins +102.
